2003 Gibson Les Paul Supreme in Trans Amber

 

The Blue Book says:

Amber (disc.), or Wine Red (disc.), mfg. 2003-present.

I say:

I just love these “Supremes”  For me, the quality of the wood used on both the Arched tops, front and back – is just amazing.

This particular example is incredibly clean.  No scratches, no dents, no loss of the gold plating off the pick ups or bridge.

Super clean case too – with the original checklist from Gibson.

TBH – I couldn’t resist getting these pictures up – I’ve not yet removed the minor surface scratches that are apparent in the finish, but this baby is in great condition and will be polished and looking almost as good as new!  I will rephotograph when I’ve had chance to clean and polish.  As far as I can see there’s no damage of any significance – beautiful….
