This is part of a huge collection of guitars we are selling for a client who’s husband passed away 3 years ago. He was a man of discerning taste and kept the collection in impeccable condition. When I walked into the room of literally hundreds of guitars on display, all top shelf, desirable, unique and some very eclectic, I felt like I went to guitar heaven. I will be adding many more guitars to the site in the coming days.
Here we have a gorgeous Gibson Les Paul Florentine made in the Gibson Custom Shop in 1998 which is the second year of the Florentine. One thing that makes it so unique is the P90 pickups! I haven’t seen another one with P90’s so it very well could be a one off. It has a gorgeous flamed maple top with a mahogany back and neck. The guitar itself is in excellent condition showing minor signs of use in the finish, the gold hardware is in good shape and there is really nothing else to say about the condition. Aside from being a semi hollow body, it has the typical Les Paul Custom features. Gibson Custom Shop produced this semi-hollow bodied version of the Les Paul Florentine between 1997 and 2000 and again for a limited run in 2013-2014. It has a bound carved top with 2 f-holes (or diamond shaped sound holes). In 2009 Gibson released a florentine cutaway solid bodied Les Paul. Comes with the Gibson custom Shop hardshell case!
