Serial #: 971581
A heavy, hard rock maple top on a lightweight mahogany body can take a Les Paul to new sonic heights. The combination has been a custom-order secret recipe, and this limited run is uniquely constructed with some of the densest Eastern Maple top woods in the world, highlighted by several breathtaking "hard rock" color inspirations. The result is an elegant, historic-spec Les Paul model with one-of-a-kind looks and unforgettable sound.
To us, a heavy, hard rock maple top on a lightweight mahogany body seems to have been the inspiration for this model’s name. Gibson are betting that the dense Eastern Maple top will, when combined with that lightweight mahogany body, sound as good as you could possibly hope for.
The pictures don't do it justice! Get your hands on this beautiful custom shop piece, it will not last long.
