This Used 2018 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Special in Oxblood weighs in at 7 pounds 8 oz.  The guitar is in very nice shape though since it is a very dark, nitrocellulose finished guitar, it shows off any and all played wear along with swirl marks. This guitar was certainly played but it remains in great condition with some pick wear on the pickguard and the neck pickup cover. The neck is straight, the truss rod is functioning properly, and the frets have plenty of life left in them. Included with the guitar are the Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity and Original Lifton Style Hardshell Case.

This electric guitar is part of a limited run from 2018 that were available in a bevy of colors. Oxblood is one of Gibson-lore that many perceive as black until they are right up on the guitar. It takes the light hitting it at the right angle to see it clearly. 

The neck is made from Mahogany and has a Rosewood Fingerboard. The neck profile is definitely on the chunky side. Measuring at .900" at the 1st fret, this is no SlimTaper. If you like a Fat Neck, this'll do! 12" Fingerboard Radius, 24.75" scale length, and 1 and 11/16" nut width cover the important neck numericals. 

The body of the Les Paul Special is made from Mahogany. This simplistic tonewood approach allows for added mid-range growl rather than the top-end provided by a Maple top. This is a magnificent pairing for P-90 pickups.

The P-90s are single coil pickups that arrived in the early 1950s. Many of the much-loved early Rock and Roll recordings feature these pickups, especially the song of Elvis Presley and even through to The Beatles, especially in the 60s. They remain the pickup style of choice for hundreds of players who prefer their Single Coil meets Humbucker tones. From bright and biting to dark and wool-ish, these pickups offer a sweet new flavor to many players' palettes but those in the know have loved them since discovering them.
