This 2017 Gibson Les Paul Rattler is a rare find and part of a limited run from the Custom Shop. This guitar has very little play and has been part of a unique guitar collection and is now available for sale. All original hardware, original case, and COA included and in excellent condition. There is some slight checking on the body and back of the headstock. Recently setup by TGR, frets are level, polished and trussrod is in proper working order.
Gibson’s Custom Shop luthiers selected premium mahogany for the body, topped it with jaw-dropping figured maple, then spec’d a pair of premium humbuckers – a classic recipe for a rich, articulate tone that’ll let you slice right through the mix. The Gibson Les Paul Custom Limited wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes – standard back in the day – are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a classic axe – one that will only improve with age.
