Gibson Les Paul Custom John Sykes Aged Only 66 Made


The John Sykes Les Paul Custom Aged re-creates Sykes number one instrument--a 1978 Les Paul Custom--and includes the modifications John has made to his instrument over his years of playing with Tygers of Pan Tang, Whitesnake, and Thin Lizzy. This Limited Edition version of just 66 Aged models duplicates the wear and aging that John's guitar has undergone over the years.  Handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, except for Sykes' modifications, and a special aged nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar.
