One of only 150 of these were made, 50 each in 1978, 1979, and 1980 for La Tosca Musique in Montreal as a custom order made by Guy A. Brassart. This one is #4 of the final run of 50.
This guitar is a beautiful example of the earliest version of a Gibson upscale traditional style double cutaway guitar, basically like a Les Paul Special with no pickguard, binding, ebony fretboard, and a flame maple top.
This one plays absolutely beautifully. It has low, fast action with no buzzing. Classic P90 sound abounds, giving warm, articulate cleans, and growling overdriven tones. Playability and sound are completely without issue.
There is honest, well earned playwear shown in the finish, but it doesn't have any signs of abuse. There is a well repaired spot on to top between the volume knobs where there appears to have been a toggle switch at one time. The guitar also appears to have been refretted fairly recently. The frets were well leveled and show little wear, meaning it's simply a great player. The tuners, Nashville bridge, control knobs, switch tip and TP-6 tailpiece all appear orignal, as do the P90 pickups and their covers.
The guitar comes with a brand new hard shell Lifton style case.
