The Very First Sunburst Les Paul For Sale. Want It?

Image placeholder title

Our Nashville Editor, Michael Ross, just hipped us to the news that Walter Carter of Carter Vintage Guitars has acquired the very first sunburst Les Paul to be produced and shipped to a customer by the Gibson factory back in 1958.

Carter, who was Gibson's chief historian for years, is estimating the value of the debut 'burst at $625,000. Not a bad investment if you paid around $350 for it in 1958.

We'll run a comprehensive report by Ross about the guitar, but for now, please enjoy these videos...
