maple neck custom

Recommended Posts

Very sweet!

 

Can you post a close-up of the fingerboard, please, as, previously, I've only seen (pale!) maple boards on natural finish Customs and yours seems to have mellowed nicely.

 

Welcome!!!

That is a nice looking guitar. How does the maple fretboard sound compared with the rosewood?

 

I have a '78 LP Standard, maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. I got mine in '79 too.

Absolutely my favorite Gibson LP!

 

I see those pop up from time to time on eBay in either BLACK or NATURAL. I drool each time that I see one! They seem to sell at about $3,500.00-$4,000.00 (too rich for my blood at the moment!).

 

Really a unique and beautiful instrument.

I love 'em. Man, I've been tempted to take one of my Epi LPs to my luthier & have him pop the fretboard off & replace it with a birdseye maple with little-bitty frets.

 

Yours looks really cool. I'm jealous.
