1986 Les Paul Custom question
Posted 02 December 2009 - 12:44 PM
The question I have is the Guitar is Gun Stock Gray and the only Les Pauls I'm seeing that are gray are the Standards and the new Axcess line. Gibson told me they didn't track colors back then so it's possible that they could have produced this Gray Guitar. Looking at the standard color options, Ebony, White, Silver, Cherry and Wine, gray is not something you can select. So is it possible the Custom's were offered in Gray back in 86? The S/N is 8 digit and starts w/80XXXXXX.
So its not a Reissue or a Guitar from the Custom Shop either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

perhaps it was a custom order, i have a 79 in all silver not silverburst which would be correct for that period, not being the original owner i was trying to find out about the color and gibson told me it was probably a custom order.i know its a different year but maby yours could be a custom order as well.
i have to return some video tapes!
