Gibson Les Paul Standard, Heritage Series, “R8” (1980, Flame Autumn-burst)

Here another 1980/1 Heritage series  Gibson Les Paul Guitar with cool looks due to its lightly flamed orange/honey finish. Not a screaming loud finish but very nice maple top and a killer sound to boot; for those who know the Gibson Les Paul Historic Heritage range, you will have seen some great examples of Gibson’s luthiers’ craftsmanship. However, this one is quality and like the purpose of the Heritage series they are close replica cousins to the 1958/9 Gibson LP series. An R8/9 prehistoric, close to the vintage original, in an early, 1980 reissue.
