1982 Gibson Les Paul Leo's 59 Reissue, heritage cherry sunburst flametop. Serial number L10265 / 83422001. This guitar is 100% original except for one bridge saddle and the missing bridge saddle retainer wire. The guitar shows some wear, some weather checking in the finish and lacquer checking along the top's center seam. This is actually the first we've seen with Schaller made single ring Kluson style tuners with the Gibson logo on them diagonally. The tuner tips look as if they were initially double ring and then cut for Leo's like it was done for the Guitar Trader reissues. This is a historically significant reissue because it's probably the closest one can get to real Kalamazoo made (!) 'Burst Les Paul without spending 6 figures. The fretboard markers are the nicer bigger ones, the neck/body angle is shallower, the headstock shape is beautiful, the original Tim Shaw Zebra PAF Reissue pickups give an original set of PAFs a good run for their money. The top has a beautiful vintage style carve and a very unique flame. The frets have either been extensively dressed or partially replaced and the tip of the fretboard at the 22nd fret treble side has been reglued before it could come loose. Comes with the original brown Gibson hardshell case. Weighs 4.65kg.
