Gibson / Les Paul Custom Alpine White Reissue 1997 / 1961 / Guitar

We welcome into our shop this ’61 Les Paul Custom reissue from 1997. In 1961 the Les Paul model got a complete body style change to symmetrical pointed double cutaways on a thin mahogany body with beveled edges, more commonly refered to as the "SG" body style which eventually became it's official name from 1963 onwards. This reissue stays true to the original which was a striking model to say the least with it's alpine white finish, all gold hardware and three '57 Humbuckers taking up their position between the tune-o-matic bridge and the "Les Paul Custom" label. The mahogany neck is a comfortable C-shape and offers the familiar 43mm (1 11/16") nutwidth on it's ebony fretboard which has been adorned with white bindings and pearl block inlays. Other features include pearl Gibson and Custom logo headstock inlay, stopbar, standard Les Paul control layout and a 3-ply white pickguard. The tuners are newer high-quality gold Waverly with ivoroid buttons. Condition wise it's Very Good with some light discoloration of the finish, minor fading of the gold parts, several dings, marks and other signs of use in the finish of both the neck and body, original frets look great. Included is the original hardshell case with original Warranty Card.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
