Product Description

Gibson Custom Shop Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul Antiquity Burst VOS “Beano”.
As pictured with all papers, case candy and original hard case. 
This guitar is in excellent condition overall. There is only one ding on the tip to the headstock which is visible in the photos.
Other than that ding on the headstock, the guitar is free of blemishes. 
      Made from the classic tonewood aggregate of carved maple top and one-piece mahogany back, and dressed in a faded nitrocellulose Antiquity Burst finish atop a lightly figured maple cap, the Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul embodies the Les Paul owned and played by Eric Clapton in 1966. Of this limited run, 150 examples will be Murphy-aged (55 of which Clapton will hand-sign and keep the first 5), and an additional 350 will be given Gibson Custom’s VOS treatment. 

      A pair of custom-made humbucking pickups precisely replicate the tone and performance of the original PAF pickups in Eric Clapton’s 1960 Les Paul, with the unparalleled blend of warmth, richness and bite that has made these pickups famous. They are routed through high-quality CTS potentiometers for volume and tone, with “bumble bee” tone capacitors, and a Switchcraft three-way toggle switch. 

      The solid one-piece mahogany neck is carved to a thinner Clapton-approved profile and is capped with a rosewood fingerboard with acrylic pearloid trapezoid inlays and 22 medium-jumbo frets. Its headstock is back-angled to the traditional 17 degrees, and the entire appendage is glued into the guitar’s body with a deep-set long neck tenon, a joint known to help strength and resonance. 
      Just like the original Burst on which it is based, the Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul carries a classic hardware set that includes a nickel-plated ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, along with the efficient nickel-plated Grover tuners that were added to Clapton’s own guitar to replace the original Klusons, a popular “upgrade” of the day.
