For some reason the guys at the Kalamazoo plant really put their hearts into this guitar. One of the most beautiful 25/50’s I’ve seen. The maple top almost looks on fire and the finish is perfect. I was going to mount this guitar in a case on the wall until my better 0.5 said “no” so I’d play it just once in a while but I like a lighter guitar so it has remained in its case almost all of its life. This guitar has a voice of it’s own and growls unlike any others I even have. The sound is amazing and is one of those “shivers down the spine” inducing players. You can tell from the pictures that this a different guitar and has features unique to only a few other Gibson versions. The split abalone inlays are found on only one other model and the coil tap switch was a tough to find feature until the Jimmy Page Les Paul. This guitar is just fun to look at with its many one-of pieces. The only thing more fun is playing it. The internet has many fine pieces written about this machine and you’ll find it worth it to investigate the history of it as well as the many features it has that are too a lot of to list. The records show this one, #73178188, 0679, was the 188th unit put out on Nov. 13, 1978 at Kalamazoo, Mich. and the 679th version of this model produced. A good day for an elite, unique version of Gibson’s Les Paul.
