Here’s a gorgeous Gibson Custom Shop Billy Gibbons Pearly Gates Les Paul, which started out life as a VOS model, and was sent to Historic Makeovers for the Deluxe Package to turn itself into a really amazing looking relic! The Deluxe Package from HM entails a complete refinish with aniline dyes, a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 50’s correct inlays, rolled fretboard edges, and royalite binding.

The pickups remain original, the cover on bridge pickup has been removed and reinstalled. It was previously owned by musician and actor Micki Free, who had his name stenciled on the case.
