Gibson Les Paul Artisan maple neck 1978

Gibson Les Paul Artisan Darktop with serial #70768167. Along with many other mysteries of Gibson's Norlin era, little is known about the origin of the Les Paul Artisan model. It was introduced in 1977 as part of the Les Paul series, and is often described as an ornate Les Paul Custom model. The most interesting and unique features are the hearts and flowers inlay pattern on the neck (reminiscent of banjo inlays), and the unique Gibson peghead design, with the pre-war style "Gibson" script logo and pearl hearts and flowers inlays. The Artisan was originally fitted with three pickups, black "top hat" knobs with gold inserts and a stop bar tailpiece in 1977. Two were Gibson Series VII humbucking pickups and one (middle position) Gibson "Super Humbucking" pickup. The Les Paul Artisan is a must have for many Les Paul collectors and players, and a very unique and ornate guitar in the history of Gibson Les Paul models.

This one is in excellent condition, it shows some wear on its body, small dimples here and there, which is normal for a guitar of this age, and it has some patina on its metal parts. The frets are low but these came with medium sized ones, they're still playable, but need to be replaced in the nearby future. Consignment sale.
