Gibson Les Paul Nash LP60 Flametop Conversion Electric Guitar – Cherry Burst
Hand Made in the USA!
Nash Guitars and Gibson have brought us the definitive Les Paul: the Gibson/Nash LP60. It’s everything you want a Les Paul to be, without all the bells and whistles. No modern features, no robo-tuners or weight relief. Just pure, unadulterated rock and roll. Aged and relic’d like only Nash can, this guitar looks like it just got off a 40-year world tour!
The Nash treatment takes more than a piece of sandpaper and some elbow grease. Bill completely strips the guitar all the way down to the bare wood and starts all over again with his secret formula of lacquers and treatments. The guitar is completely disassembled and certain parts are selected for aging and other parts are kept “clean.” Finally finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer, this guitars have all the tone and resonance of a real vintage Les Paul. Once the finish is done, that’s when the hardware and electronics go in. But it’s not all stock parts that end up in there…
The pickups are replaced with a DiMarzio Bluesbucker in the Neck and a DiMarzio Air Norton in the Bridge. Rewired completely to breathe better, the LP60 has a few more tricks up its sleeve. The neck pickup’s tone control is wired like a coil tap, which gives that pickup an amazing vintage strat sound. The beauty is that you’re not locked into just one tone! From 1-8 on the tone knob, it works as a regular tone control, but push it past 9 and it shuts off the Bluesbucker’s second coil and… Viola! A coil tap without adding switches or push pull pots.The Air Norton gives you a huge wide-range output and rich harmonics but without being too loud like other “specialty” pickups out there on the market.
The Air Norton pickups have a lower string pull and a much higher sensitivity to your dynamics and playing style. They are perfectly suited to vintage style guitars and featured in lots of Nash guitars.
Note from VG: This is one of lightest, most resonant Les Pauls we’ve ever had come through the shop. It weighs an unreal 7 pounds 15 ounces and has a beautiful flame top! Don’t miss this one!
