Gibson Les Paul Standard, Heritage Series, “R8” (1980, Quilted Honey)

Here a remarkably pretty Gibson Les Paul Guitar with cool looks due to its quilted 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 luthier craftsmanship. However, this one is supercool and no other than that this is a close cousin to the 1958/9 Gibson LP series. An R8/9 prehistoric, close to the vintage original, in an early, 1980 reissue.
