Description

You are looking at a Gibson Custom Limited Run Mick Ralphs 1958 Les Paul Standard #8 7049 Replica Electric Guitar, serial number CC43A025. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 9.9 oz.)

The Gibson Custom Shop is known for their precise attention to detail when it comes to faithfully re-creating vintage instruments, and this Mick Ralphs 1958 Les Paul Standard #8 7049 Replica is no exception. A painstaking replica of the '58 Les Paul Standard used by lead guitarist Mick Ralphs of Bad Company, this reissue is "virtually indistinguishable" from the original, according to the current owner who along with Mick, had the final approval of the instrument. Offering up all the sonic excellence of the original, comes equipped with dual Custombucker pickups and hand-wired electronics. Its period-correct hardware and plastics take this replica to all new levels of vintage accuracy. Limited to only 300 instruments, the Mick Ralphs 1958 Les Paul Standard #8 7049 Replica makes the perfect addition to any 'Burst collector, any Mick Ralphs fan, or any discerning player's collection!

"Virtually Indistinguishable"
Mick Ralphs and John Marlow, the current owner of lucky #8 7049, were absolutely blown away by the painstaking accuracy of this replica. To ensure that this guitar was really up the standards of the original instrument, Gibson Custom too the time and effort to measure and digitally scan every single aspect of the original guitar such as the top carve, neck profile, and even pickup outputs. The wood used on each instrument has been carefully hand-selected by Gibson Custom to mimic the aesthetic of the original's woods. Of course, this '58 Mick Ralphs replica boasts a historic hide glue construction and long tenon neck joint for that unparalleled vintage response, but it also has been aged to reflect the actual wear and tear of the original instrument (authentic finish checking, dings, scratches, finish wear, etc.).

Pure Vintage Tones
As we mentioned before, even the output of the pickups were measured. Paired with hand-wired electronics featuring Bumblebee capacitors, this Mick Ralphs 1958 Les Paul Standard delivers those warm, juicy humbucker tones and the authentic growl and bite of the original #8 7049.

Vintage Accuracy Through and Through
Everything about this replica remains true to the original thanks to replica plastics and period-correct hardware including a nylon nut, aged Kluson tuners with extra holes drilled (like the original guitar), an ABR-1 bridge with screws toward the tailpiece, a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and more!
