GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP Les Paul DC Pro RARE! 1998 Emerald Green Double Cut HSC 81619

Regular price $1,999
Super rare early Custom Shop.
This is a 1998 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul DC Pro in Emerald Green. These are a rare find with rare PRS-looking headstock with straight string pull. Beautiful figured AAA mahogany flame maple top with chambered mahogany body. Thin mahogany neck with compound radius ebony fretboard and pearl dots. Pickups are '57 Classic neck and 498T in the bridge. This guitar has been played and shows it mostly on the back with various marks. Top is pretty clean. Frets are in good shape. One shallow impression on back of neck. Five of the tuners are Schaller branded, but they appear to be the same exact tuners as the Gibson one. Gibson probably re-branded the mini-Shallers for these. Some specs I've found on the net. (I can take any neck measurements if you ask):
-- Offset double cutaway mahogany back with tummy cut
-- Bound AAA flamed maple top (figured)
-- Set-in mahogany neck, 24.75″ scale
-- 24 fret ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays
-- Tune-o-matic bridge/stop tailpiece
-- 3 per side Schaller mini-tuners
-- Black slimmed peghead with pearl logo inlay
-- Nickel hardware, 2 covered humbuckers
-- One master volume/one master tone controls, 3-way toggle

The ink stamped serial number is near impossible to see on rear of headstock, but it is "8 0XXX." This guitar is far from perfect and has definitely been played with plenty of scuffs and small dings, but it's a 20-year vintage super rare Custom Shop. I've seen these sell from $1700 to $3500, depending on condition, so that tells you how I set my price. Nice and light at 7 pounds, 3 ounces. Comes with a TKL case in good condition. Contact with any questions or requests for additional pics BEFORE buying. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
