Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cutaway 1998 Transparent Black Flame Top w Original Hard Shell Case

Just in at Diablo Guitars is this beautiful trans black Les Paul Double Cut! These guitars are for all intents and purposes a magnificently built Les Paul Standard, but slightly lighter and unique feeling in that realm where a Paul might intersect with an SG (A body style pioneered by Gibson that Paul Reed Smith later augmented and launched into stratospheric popularity).

Our Double Cut has an exquisite trans black finish that really shows of the perfect piece of flame maple chosen for the cap. The body and neck are solid mahogany and the fingerboard finished in a dark rich rosewood. The guitar has vibe for days and plays like a dream. 

A more stripped down control layout is set in place on these models with a single volume and a single tone tied to the classic Gibson 3 way toggle. Pickup wise these shipped with Gibson’s 498T and 490R (Bridge & Neck) just as all Les Paul standards of this era did. This choice of pickups and tone woods makes for that absolutely rich Gibson tone. Weather you’re playing blues, jazz, rock or metal, bluegrass, country… this is a magnificently constructed guitar will never steer you wrong. 

This Les Paul Standard Double Cut is in excellent condition save for a few very small dings documented in the photos above. It’s been freshly set up with D’Addario .10-.46 strings in standard tuning with low / fast action and a straight neck.

Ships in original Gibson USA hard shell case.
