2007 Gibson Warren Haynes Les Paul in excellent condition, part of a limited run of 300 instruments produced by the guys and gals in the Gibson Custom Shop and inspired by Haynes own go to Les Paul. He is best known for his work as longtime guitarist with the Allman Brothers Band and as founding member of the jam band Gov't Mule.
The inspired by Warren Haynes Les Paul takes the traditional Custom Shop approach to a Reissue Les Paul with a few additional features to make the model unique. Traditional features include a solid Mahogany body with a carved plain maple top, one piece mahogany neck with a large ’58 profile, rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. twin Gibson Burstbucker pickups wired to the standard Gibson control layout. The finish, selected by Haynes, sits somewhere between Lemon Drop and Iced Tea, shows off the contours of the plain top perfectly and is only used on this model.
Unique features include a CAE unity-gain buffer pre-amp unit (which maintains consistent tone when volume is lowered, and helps maintain signal strength through multiple effects), the frets come over the fretboard binding, the knob pointers lay flat against the body, bridge & tailpiece are TonePros locking versions, Schaller strap locks, bone nut, ’58 reissue neck profile, and the aforementioned Haynes Burst finish
Other than a set of Grover tuners, the guitar is stock and plays excellently. The Haynes model sold without a pickguard and this guitar has never had one fitted. It weighs 10.4 lbs but feels lighter in the hand, the solid unchambered, non-weight relieved Mahogany body undoubtedly contributing to the guitars large, warm sound. Chords ring out and single notes sustain. The CAE Buffer does its job without fuss and helps maintain treble when the volume is reduced.
The guitar comes with its original Gibson case, Warranty card and photo certificate.
