Les Paul Studio Guitar played by G. Benson, Autographs
Item Details
Description
United States, Gibson Guitar Corporation, 2008. Case is Gibson made in Canada. A stunning Gibson Les Paul Studio electric guitar (model no. LPSTEBGH) with a gorgeous black ebony finish on the body, gold trim, and mother of pearl fret inlays on the rosewood fingerboard with a black Gibson hardshell case lined with white plush lining. What makes this iconic guitar even more special is that it has been played by some remarkable musicians, including the incomparable George Benson and John Blanton, guitarist and keyboard player for Crazy Horse with Neil Young. The guitar is accompanied by several index cards with autographs and in some cases messages from these players as well as a black suede Rock Steady guitar strap, a guitar stand, a pick case containing 16 picks, a thumb pick, a Korg Chromatic tuner CA-30, an owner's manual, a Planet Waves string winder, an unopened pack of Cleartone guitar strings, a short cable (likely to connect 2 pedals). A wonderful example of the word's most iconic guitars that also has an incredible history. Size: Gibson Les Paul Studio standard.

Also included is an issue of the Santa Monica College Corsair (Wednesday, October 28, 2009) that has a few handwritten notes such as, "My Gentle Lady," Lyrics I wrote from the lyrics I remembered in a dream of Danny Whittier. I used a pen name. He was lead guitarist of Crazy Horse for Neil Young." Also, "John Blanton my neighbor saw this. He was guitarist and keyboardist for Crazy Horse Neil Young (1970's-1973's)."

According to the Gibson website, "The Les Paul Studio embodies the essential Les Paul features with enhancements for playability and tonal versatility. The rosewood fingerboard and slim taper mahogany neck provide effortless playability and comfort. The 490R and 498T pickups provide tight, high-output humbucking performance and the two push-pull pots offer additional coil-tapping options." This Studio model is part of the modern collection of Les Paul guitars, designed to maintain tone yet provide weight relief. According to the Gibson website, "Ultra-Modern Weight Relief was developed through a slight yet carefully calculated offsetting of the chambers around the perimeters of the guitar's body to further lighten the load, without degradation in tone. It’s engineered to provide a solid core through the center of the guitar to retain the classic Les Paul sound. Unlike a full chambered design it is less prone to feedback or affecting the tonality and resonance of the guitar."
