Gibson Neil Young Ol Black Les Paul #6 5187


Superb Custom Shop recreation of Neil Young’s fabled ‘Ol Black’ Les Paul, this guitar was purchased & placed into storage, it has never been played other than to tune & check, stored in a smoke free climate controlled environment

Difficult getting to the bottom of this story Gibson are not talking, it seems that Gibson produced a handful of these for their Japanese distributor Yamano, it is possible that Neil Young had not signed off on the deal, production seems to have ended abruptly,however, a few of these escaped from the Gibson plant & here we have one, we’re talking super rare!!

Very lightly aged, correct pickup configuration, original hardshell case.
