McGibney Custom Guitars in Colorado specializes in custom acoustic and electric guitars. Matt McGibney takes his woodworking knowledge and experience as a pro guitar tech and pours it into building guitars that are absolutely bar none! These instruments exceed even the greatest offerings of the big boys. 

Matt creates many different styles but a LP-style guitar like this one is hard to come by. And this one is gorgeous and absolutely rips!

Crafted from mahogany (of course!) with a stunning maple cap with binding, this guitar is gonna turn some heads. The C profile mahogany neck (.869"-1.21") feels slim yet comfy in the hands. A 10" radius rosewood fingerboard rounds out the construction of this Paul. 

All that tone is pumped through a pair of McGibney Bloomfield pickups (which are made by hand) and they have the classic 60s tone that made the LP sound famous (N: 6.79k, B: 7.10k). They're outfitted with aged nickel covers that add to the throwback mojo of this guitar. 

Traditional controls of Vol-Vol-Tone-Tone give you all the controls you need to coax the sound you need outta this baby. Up top, as on all Pauls, you got the 3-way toggle complete with a "Sex/Romance" poker chip (why, McGibney, you rascal). 

This guitar is feels great and has a nice comfy weight of 7.6 lbs. Overall it got signs of playwear and you can see that this used guitar has been played and loved. There is buckle rash, dinging and some scratching in the back (see pics). The top shows surface level pick swirl. But overall it adds to the aged look given this guitar by Matt at the factory. 

The pro techs here at EMS have given it a full fret level and setup so that it's ready for stage or studio when you receive it. It will ship the next day with the included hardshell case.
