$4,999

Gibson Custom Shop has created small batches of sparkle-finish guitars in the past, but never before have the finishes so perfectly matched the inlay colors like in this limited-edition Les Paul Custom Abalone Sparkle series. All the gleaming, vibrant colors of Abalone come alive through these five coordinated metal flake finishes. Under the hood, all the classic Les Paul tone and Custom Shop construction you expect is present, making it every bit the pro-level instrument as it is a museum-caliber statement piece.

Calibre surely!?

 

...But then even here the auto-spellcheck-thing tried to suggest caliber as I typed that, so maybe I've had it wrong all these years... or is it part of the dumbening conspiracy? [mellow]

 

It's the yanks. They can neither spell nor come up with their own language so they steel one and spell it wrong. See, they also need a little more info than most people.

 

To you and me, "horse riding" is enough information to give us the basics but the first Americans to try it where clinging to the legs which didn't work so they decided it would be much clearer if the called it horse back riding.

 

Then there's the sidewalk. You and I can look at the pavement and see it was designed for walking on, away from traffic but Americans noted it was all paved so wandered about in traffic until they renamed it a side walk to make it clearer.

not really something I find attractive..

 

I dunno,, maybe I'm crazy but instead of diluting the Les Paul line up by creating all these "specialty" models, that seem to have little appeal and offer nothing more than some one off cosmetics, pay attention to the details of the flag ship lineups, and make them "RIGHT" out the door the first time....

It wasn't the Americans who stole the spelling of theatre and centre. Limeys did, from the French to sound "smart". How's it working for you? [flapper] Calibre, come to think of it was probably from the same era.

True, but at least we stole some words, incorporated into our own language and continued to spell them correctly.

 

It's not in the same league is it?!

 

:D

It's steal, not steel.
