Greg Martin’s 1958 Les Paul is a very nice example of a sunburst guitar that has seen an amazing amount of use but is still in great shape. The guitar originally was a cherry sunburst color but with time, like so many, it has faded out to a beautiful dark lemon sunburst color.
- The frets have been changed out as is common among guitars of this age. The back color is missing in places from usual wear and tear but for the most part it still maintains much of its original red.
- The sound of this particular guitar is very big and bold. Even though there are other Les Pauls that are similar, the special characteristics of the neck profile and top dish carving, the electronics and how the finish has turned are what creates its DNA.
- This ’58 Les Paul has a Maple top, Mahogany body and Rosewood fingerboard as expected. Also has Trapezoid inlays and ABR-1. Along with the frighteningly authentic Cherry Sunburst which all makes this a must have for any significant guitar collection.
