The Gibson Les Paul Heritage Award was the absolute top of the line for the Heritage Series and only around 50 were ever made. The Awards were distributed to stores in the USA which performed well with sales of the Heritage Series. We at Bizarre Guitar were one of those stores. They sent us this one that was hand signed by the man himself.
The Award model features the most stunning bursts, gold hardware, ebony fingerboards, solid one piece mahogany neck and body and lastly they are equipped with Tim Shaw humbucking pickups. In our opinion, these are the best pickups you’ll ever find on a Gibson.
This particular LP is not for sale, we are estimating the value in the $20,000 range. (Maybe more...) The good news is that the Gibson Custom Shop is doing an incredible job recreating these guitars (and the Murphy Lab is making some of the best reissues we have ever seen!), they truly do feel and sound like the vintage instruments they are replicating. Please check this website for the Custom Shop Gibsons that we have listed. If you don't see what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us directly, as we are one of the largest Gibson dealers in the country and can have one made for you to your exact specifications. firstname.lastname@example.org or 775-331-1001.
