Gibson Custom Shop Collector’s Choice Number 7 1960 Les Paul “Shanks” Aged

With fewer than 2,000 Les Paul’s made between 1958 and 1960, these hallowed instruments are extremely rare and valuable. A handful of transitional guitars that blend the ever evolving specs are even more prized. As the chunky, rounded neck profile of the ’59 segued into the slimmer, faster profile of the ’60 Les Paul Standard, a mere handful of the fatter 50’s necked examples slipped into the new model year, and of these, the Les Paul owned by legendary music producer and songwriter John Shanks is known to be as good as it gets. A limited run of 400 guitars will be built. Here are the details: Unique Faded Cherry Sunburst, Serial number CC07A-206, Lightly figured Maple top, One piece Mahogany body, Aniline Dye used on the body and neck, Rounded neck profile, Single layer Rosewood fingerboard with the "original style" trapezoid inlays, Custom Bucker bridge and neck pickups, ABR-1 bridge with lightweight Aluminum stopbar tailpiece, Grover tuners, 8.8 pounds, With hardshell case

Condition: New

Item Code: CC07A206
