Here’s literally something you don’t see every day. In 2018, Luthman Scandinavia, the Scandinavian importer of Gibson guitars, commissioned a series of 6 prototype guitars from the Gibson Custom Shop. One of them was this guitar, a ’57 style Goldtop Les Paul but with one pickup and a Wilkinson trem.

As fate would have it, Aerosmith legend Joe Perry happend to visit the Gibson Custom Shop while this guitar was being readied for shipment, saw it, played it, and loved it so much that he had to have one just like it. And so the limited edition Joe Perry “Gold Rush” Les Paul Axcess was born, and the rest is history, but THIS is the guitar that started it all.

It’s completely handbuilt, with some of the most beautiful aging we have ever seen on a Gibson, lightweight, and sounds killer. It comes with its original aged Lifton style case. There is no other documentation with the guitar as it’s a prototype, which is also proven by the unique “LUTHMAN2” serial number. This guitar is seriously one of a kind.
