Gilbert Les Paul Guitar w/ Gibson Case & Sustainer Owned by Paul Gilbert #33043

Availability: In stock




BRAND: Gilbert

MODEL: "Les Paul Style" 

FUNCTION: Electric guitar

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a unique Gilbert "Les Paul style" single-cut electric guitar owned by Paul Gilbert. Please note, this is a Les Paul style clone made by a Korean guitar company named Gilbert. Only the case was made by Gibson, not the guitar.

Paul used this guitar to record “Children of the Grave” on Racer X’s “Technical Difficulties” album. He also used it to record “Suite Modale” on his “Silence Followed by a Deafening Roar” album. The guitar has been modified with a double 9v Fernandes Sustainer system (the most powerful ever made.) A DiMarzio Tone Zone pickup is in the bridge position. A signed certificate of authenticity can be included with the guitar upon request.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good- This visually striking guitar is in wonderful condition, its sharp monochromatic color scheme holding fantastic visual appeal, with the white finish having aged gracefully into a very subtle off-white. It's unclear if the neck is original or not, as the aging matches the rest of the guitar, but there's about a millimeter or so of space on the right side of the neck joint.

Either way, the feel of the assembly is solid, and all the hardware is pristine, including the Gotoh tuners which are not original. Typical scratches from playing can be found all over, while most are concentrated on the back of the neck under the first handful of frets. Lastly, there's a sign screwed into the back of the guitar that reads "¡Cuidado! Perro Malo."

All in all, this guitar is just worn in enough to feel fantastic in the hand. Rock-approved condition!

The included hard case is in solid condition, showing cosmetic wear under a small number of stickers and a gaff tape label that reads "Gilbert Les Paul". Sturdy overall, holds this guitar snugly, and fit for travel!

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent- This guitar plays wonderfully, with smooth response and accurate intonation all the way up the neck. The sound from the pickups is one rock purists will love, with a wonderful bite accented by a smoothness that can lean warmer for rhythms and other playing styles. The Sustainer works perfectly, adding a seriously cool sound to play with as desired. Fantastic working condition!
