Exclusive Alnico V pickups with classic neck and head.
The feel and sound of the original '50s LP comes from a classic, hefty neck design with the smaller peghead, push-in-bushing green tuning keys, and nickel hardware. BurstBucker V pickups feature Alnico V magnets like those used in the P90s from the '50s. One coil has more wraps than the other, as did most '50s and early '60s "Patent Applied For"s. These waxed, double-potted pickups deliver a tighter, balanced, biting tone with more midrange. Mahogany body and neck with maple top and rosewood fretboard. Includes hardshell case.
- Mahogany body and fat '50s neck

I,ve owned my lefty l.p. for about 3 months it has the 50s neck but it's still on the small side when you compare it to most R8's that gibson is putting out, very comfy, with enough mass for a good grip on strangling a note. the sustain is just what I was hoping for, incredible, and the guitar is very light (6lbs) because its chambered but gibson say's that instead of just chopping out the middle they designed the routing to be resonant along the lines of acoustic guitar bracing, yep they sure did. the B.B.er's are still a little dark but if thats what your going for...The tuners don't slip the nickel gleams and the fingerboard binding has those cute little nips over the fret ends, and the Iced tea looks killer, I love my les paul.
my 08 lefty LP is the lightest guitar i've ever owned, the tone is on the bright side (acoustically) compared to my concrete 04 with a 60's neck. Speaking of necks the 50's neck is just as fast. The sustain is better, notes seem to last forever compared to the 04. The brustbuckers are fat, and they clean up nice when you roll back the vol. Iced tea is just beautiful!
I bought this guitar and had to wait 7 months to get it. I recieved in July of 2007 and am quite satisfied. What took so long to recieve the guitar was the fact that Gibson started to have these guitars made in custom shop. I called the factory after waiting for a while and the guy told me that gibson stoped making them by machine because then they had to recalibrate the machines so they are begining to make them in custom shops. Even though the instrament gives no evidence it was made in custom shipe (for example no custom shop guitar case just the normal alligator skin one with white fur). Probably the best two features of the guitar is the color and the tone/ sound. I love tobacco burst and this guitar looked closest to a tobacco in the picture so I ordered this one. When I recieveed mine, it was dark and looked a lot like a tobbacoo burst even the frets were vanellia to give it the aged look. There are absolutly no dead frets on this guitar! My friend owns 3 gibsons and both his SG and custom shop gold top have 1 or 2 dead frets (which is a bummer for him cuz his gold top costed him $4,000 at the factory store in TN). All in all this is a great instraument but I wish it was cheaper to own.
