One of the first, if not the first Les Paul made with the 2015 Gibson True Historic/ Historic Select specs, featuring roasted back, sides, top, neck, and also full hide glue construction, ordered by a US shop that spent five years working with Gibson on the project.

The serial number of this guitar precedes the models with the MZ5000 serial numbers. Light in weight (8.4 lbs) and extremely resonant, this could very well be a Les Paul player's dream instrument.
