Gibson / 1960 Corvette Ltd. Edition / 1995 / Venetian Red/Cream Cove / Guitar For Sale

This rare guitar is one that many know and love from the Gibson Custom Shop in 1995, #52 of 200 made & Gibson’s homage to the 1960 Corvette in Les Paul form. Features include a stunning Venetian Red w/a Cream Cove w/an Ebony fretboard inlayed with a gorgeous pearl “Corvette” logo script from 1960 corvette line. The headstock is inlayed with the Chevrolet Corvette crossed flags and these flags are also on the matching collectible case with crushed black velvet interior included here. The back cover plates and truss rod cover are engraved chrome plated brass (see pics) and the pickup covers are engraved with ”283” and ”fuel injection” in the original script. The maple top is hand carved to simulate the famous side scoop of the 1960 Corvette. Original black leather case with Corvette emblem included. The serial number on the back of the headstock (denoting 52 which corresponds to the special edition of 200) has “VIN” printed before the numbers, which I believe is a fun nod toward the automotive representation of this guitar. Gibson guitars and Corvettes first came together on a Custom Shop model on the Les Paul ’60 Corvette, which was introduced in 1995 and featured authentic colors from 1960 Corvettes. Its production date was 12/5/95 & she’s truly MINT in all respects & comes in its original leather case.

From 1997 Gibson’s website: “One of the few things that conjure up romantic images as much as a Les Paul guitar is the Chevrolet Corvette. Incorporating design themes from that legendary automobile spawned the 1960 Corvette Guitar. From the distinctive Corvette logo that graces the headstock to the way the Corvette’s unmistakable front quarter panel is mimicked in the body, this is an instrument sure to ignite passion in guitar and automobile enthusiasts alike.”
