Back in from a trade is this very collectable Historic Les Paul 2003 R8 with confirmed BRW. Absolutely spectacular guitar and very rare: Gibson only made 224 of these. 

The sound of this beauty is, as you may imagine, exceptional: a lot of bite, great sustain... a true tone monster, not only a showcase guitar. It has a nice chunky '58 neck, and the weight is 9 lbs 2.56 oz (4155 gr). 

The top, as you can see in the pictures, is a very elegant flatsawn plaintop. Lots of nice wood "rings" all over. The Washed Cherry finish is very subtle near the sides and lower edges, and more pronounced near the neck. Capturing this in pictures has been very hard, so we've shown the guitar in different light situations to see the differences. 

Very similar to the other one we have from this same run.

The guitar is in truly excellent condition. It seems to have been played slightly nearly a decade ago, and then safely kept in a case for many years. There is very light worming in the back, near the pots cover (you have to tilt the guitar under a light in order to actually see it), and it has a small chip near the lower strap button, but it is towards the back of the guitar and not easy to spot (see pictures). 

Apart from this, the guitar looks practically new. Electronics are original (pickups were once replaced but original Burstbuckers are back on). 

Includes OHSC, all accessories, case candy, checklist and COA. 

A true collector's piece, no doubt... and it sounds as good as it looks.
