1991 Gibson Les Paul 40th Anniversary ID-6125
1991 Gibson Les Paul 40th Anniversary
For nearly six decades now, Gibson’s Les Paul Standard has stood the test time as the most playable guitar in the world. While others have attempted to imitate it, none have come close to duplicating the qualities of the finest six-stringed instrument on the planet. 1991 marked the 40th anniversary of the legendary Gibson Les Paul. To recognize the great contributions of Les Paul the artist, the Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Les Paul was introduced. Only 300 of these Limited Edition Les Paul's were ever produced.
This 1991 Les Paul combines features from the early Les Paul Prototypes of the 1950's along with modern innovations to create a truly unique Les Paul that leaves little to be desired. This 40th Anniversary Gibson Les Paul features a one-piece mahogany neck, carved maple top and warm-toned mahogany body. An ebony fingerboard with aged trapezoid inlays gives it a bright attack. With Stacked P-100 Pickups the tone of this guitar is very warm while still retaining a crisp hi-end with out being to brash. With a tone that resembles the best of both the P-90 and the Humbucker, the P-100 doesn't have a hum that you would normally find from a P-90.
With elegant appointments such as Aged Cream Binding on the body and fretboard, a Cream pickguard, and a Tune-o-Matic Bridge this guitar bares a very familiar and vintage look that matches to tone of this guitar beautifully.
There are various scratches as well as some dings as expected from an instrument that is over 21 years old. We did our best to capture the scratches and dings, they can be seen in the photographs below. The original Gibson USA hardshell case is included, the case does show some wear that can be also seen in the photographs below.
