Gibson / Les Paul Lite / 1997 / Blue / Guitar For Sale
Here we have a nice Gibson Les Paul with a nice backstory !
RTL2 is one of the biggest French Rock radio and organised a lot of things all along its history with some Rockstars and legendary bans we all know,
When U2 was touring in the late 90's to promote his album Popmart, RTL2 did a contest to win "The Edge's Les Paul"
That said, we found the winner of the contest in 97' who kept the guitar since 23 years and sold it to us,
There is a custom made plaque in the back with the Paris show and the date of it,
We also have the winner lotery ticket included with the guitar.
Matts Guitar Shop, France
In a milieu where desirable objects are generally locked away in a safe or behind glass, Matthieu Lucas’ collection is a refreshing exception to the rule.
He represents a new generation of guitar lovers, for whom music comes first and the sound is more important than the serial number. Like any fine collection, Matthieu Lucas’ one has a speciality: he tracks down instruments that have belonged to artists, from Jeff Buckley’s Telecaster to Tal Farlow’s Gibson, not to mention Spot - one of the few sunbursts to be found in France and which belonged to a certain Joe Bonamassa.
Through perseverance, Matthieu managed to open doors that are generally kept well shut and gained access to instruments that were not even supposed to be sold. And true to the principle that the love of music comes first, Matthieu is not the type to prevent a guitarist from enjoying his or her prized jewels.
Out of that desire to share, he finally created the Matt’s Guitar Shop showroom, a special place for selling and trading that gives Paris back its reputation for excellence in the area of beautiful guitars. Inspired and inspiring instruments, which continue to bring beautiful notes to the ears of music lovers.
