This is one of my favorite guitars ever produced by Gibson. It is one of only six like it in the world, and only two of those are in the U.S.
The inlay work of pearl and abalone roses is very classy. The artwork is some of the finest I’ve seen. The contrast of the inlays on the black richlite fretboard is beautiful. You’ll have a hard time finding a better looking guitar anywhere.
The back and sides of this guitar are the highest quality flamed maple. The figuring is gorgeous! The 3-piece back is a luxurious option that not many guitars are blessed with. The center wood is Macassar ebony. It contrasts very well with the cherry-stained maple. The flamed maple neck is extremely figured as well. The top is fine-grained Sitka spruce. The tuners are solid pearl imperial-style buttons.
The body is inlaid with abalone purfling on the top, back, and sides – something rarely seen on Gibsons.
This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime guitars that really stands out from everything else.
It is in absolute mint condition with no playwear or flaws.
Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case – a very nice faux-ostrich skin case, the best case Gibson provides. Also includes a certificate of authenticity and all original paperwork.
