Vintage Design Guitar by CreamTone • New Gibson Les Paul 2016 Traditional • Ace Frehley Inspired
CreamTone Vintage Design brings the tone, look and feel of the great vintage guitars from the 1950s and ‘60s back to modern Gibson USA Les Pauls.
We've rebuilt this Gibson Les Paul 2016 Traditional from the ground up with the full line of LIX Patina lightly aged parts. LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. Even though these parts are brand new, they have the look and feel of well-worn parts from that era. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA for best quality and performance.
If you’ve ever thought about completely outfitting a new Les Paul with CreamTone parts, but didn’t want the hassle of parting out a new guitar and being stuck with all the leftovers, this is your chance to do it the easy way.
This one is a tribute to the iconic guitar Ace Frehley played in the early 70s. And while not an exact replica, we think it totally captures the spirit of the Les Paul that made millions of kids want to pick up their first guitar.
The guitar came to us brand new and has never been owned or played outside our shop. It features a maple top on a solid mahogany body with no weight relief, and a rosewood fingerboard. It weighs 8 pounds, 14 ounces. The back is a deep, rich, transparent red that can appear almost black from certain angles. It's gorgeous.
The tobaccoburst finish is factory fresh and 100% original, as are the Plek’d frets and nut. The rest of the guitar is pure CreamTone! Upgrades to the guitar are listed below. Click on an item for a full description.
Other custom LIX Patina hardware includes vintage reissue Grover milk bottle tuners with banjo buttons. We’ve also installed aged Grover strap buttons that are compatible with Grover or Schaller strap locks, our square cream jack plate, and a nickel toggle nut. These items are not yet available separately in our store, but if you’re interested in any of them for your guitar, send us a message.
This one has a beautiful plain top that is fairly rare for a Traditional. The majority is of these were made exclusively for Sweetwater, but we managed to score the best one just for you! The finish has not been intentionally aged, however a you may find a few light marks that reflect the hand-crafted assembly of this beautiful instrument.
OHSC included along with a CreamTone COA, and all the Gibson factory case candy including the truss rod wrench, the strap ends for the Grover strap locks, and the pickguard and bracket. The guitar has been set up with new Ernie Ball Hybrid pure nickel strings and dialed in to play like a dream. Of course, things can settle a bit during shipping so minor adjustments may be necessary when you unpack it. We're including an extra set of strings.
This is an opportunity to own a new, custom-built 2016 Les Paul Traditional for the same price as the stock guitar at the big-chain stores. But unlike those, this is a very special instrument you’ll be proud to take on stage night after night.
