Gibson Les Paul Heritage Standard-80 Sunburst 1980 OHSC FMT

The Gibson Les Paul Heritage series were one of the first runs of guitar made by Gibson to re-create the original Bursts of the late 50’s/early 60’s. This is a very cool example based on a 1959 Les Paul Standard with some cool history to it. We purchased this guitar from Gibson master luthier Jim DeCola who is the previous owner. Jim had Tim Shaw sign the backs of the pickups and Bruce Bolen who was at the time of the Heritage guitar series release was the head of R&D at Gibson and responsible for the production and release of the Heritage Les Paul series. The autographs are well hidden underneath the pickguard and on the backs of the pickups, but theses add some collector lineage to the guitar.

Gibson Les Paul Heritage Standard-80 in Sunburst finish made in 1980 with Original Hard Shell Case. This guitar features a solid mahogany body with a flamed maple top, three-piece mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with a Tim Shaw Humbucker (signed) in the neck position and a Tim Shaw Humbucker (signed) in the bridge position. Controlled by 2-volume, 2-tone knobs and a 3-way toggle switch. The 24.75″ scale length neck has mother of pearl trapezoids inlays and 22 narrow tall frets with a C neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Grover tuning machines, a corian nut, a ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, and amber top hat knobs.

This guitar is in very good condition for its age however there are several small dings, surface scratches and belt buckle marks (see photos). Guitar is freshly setup in standard tuning and restrung with 10-46 strings.
