Here for sale 1997 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Catalina in Gunmetal Grey. These were originally produced in the Gibson Custom Shop. Limited production from 1997-1999 only, available in three colors, Riverside Red, Canary Yellow and Cascade Green, all in Nitro Cellulose Lacquer. So this one is rare as it is a Dark Grey (almost black) with a bit of a metallic in the finish. Features a beautiful white pearloid pickguard and truss rod cover, white pickup rings (in case as black just look cool), white binding, ebony fingerboard and MOP trapezoid inlays and MOP Custom Shop identification inlay on the headstock. The fingerboard is a compound radius. The neck shape is not super thin like a ’60 Les Paul and not super fat like a ’58. It is a bit like a ’59 Les Paul. 2-tone, 2 vol, and 3-way toggle for the pickups which are 1957 classics, tune-o-matic bridge with stop tailpiece. Grover tuners and nickel hardware. The body is weight relieved as chambered all around the edges. The guitar is in very good condition for the year and comes with a Gibson hardcase.
