Gibson / Les Paul Standard Stinger / 1960 / Cherry Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
1960 Gibson Les Paul Standard, cherry sunburst. Made in USA, serial number 09254. This guitar is as incredible as you'd expect. Here's what we found out about it:
It had Schaller tuners on at one point and the originals were reinstalled (the screw holes from the Schaller tuners were touched up as can be seen under the blacklight). The edges of the stinger were amateurishly touched up. The guitar was professionally refretted, preserving the original fret edge nibs. New nut. Has one brass bridge post.
The guitar has the typical 1960 neck profile with a little bit of extra meat on it. The original PAF pickups have zebra bobbins and read 7.6k ohm (neck) and 7.9k ohm (bridge), measured at the input jack.
The pickguard is from an earlier 1950s Goldtop Les Paul and was routed for humbuckers. The M69 neck pickup ring is correct, but the bridge pickup ring is the result of a surgical restoration. Our best guess is that the original ring broke and parts from were used to keep the guitar as original as possible. The inside feet and inside height screw rings were transplanted to a later 1970s M8 ring. Incredible stuff.
Some of the pickup rings screws and one pickguard screw are not original. The toggle switch ring is not original. The pots date to the 8th week of 1960, but it appears that they were out of the guitar and put back in.
This Burst has a nice subtle flame and is a fantastic instrument.
Comes with the original brown tolex hardshell case. Weighs 3.95kg.
On consignment, sold as-is - payment by bank wire transfer and cash only.
