1975 Gibson S-1

Gibson Les Paul S1Didn't think I'd ever be surprised by a Gibson Les Paul - until I discovered the S-1!
Love the Flying V headstock, and the pickguard shape simulating a SG on top of the Les Paul body is brilliant... Together with the Marauder, it was an attempt of Gibson to attack the Fender niche with its 3 single coil pickups on a flat-top. Didn't work though, and the 2 models were discontinued in 1980... I won't tell much more, these guitars have their pages on Wikipedia if you want extra information!


NB: There are a lot of blogs STEALING content and bandwidth. If you read this anywhere else but on guitarz.blogspot.com then you are reading a blog that STEALS content. Please support original bloggers!
