Rare opportunity to own a Gibson Les Paul owned and played by award-winning blues guitarist Robbie Laws. In addition, it is hand signed by Les Paul.
The R6 is Gibson's Custom Shop replica of a 1956 Les Paul. The attention to detail is meticulous, capturing all specs found on a vintage "Goldtop." This gorgeous "good wood era" Gibson would be a perfect addition to your Les Paul collection.
