Raffle Prizes

Grand Prize

SAM Fund 2023, 1000 Acres Ranch Resort, SAM Fund Concert, SAM FUND Unicorn, Live Music Lake George, Live Music Stony Creek , Gibson Les Paul Custom (Ebony)

A Gibson Les Paul Custom (Ebony)

There are few instruments that exude both Elegance and Simplicity better than the Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom. The Gibson Les Paul Custom has become the instrument of choice of many legendary musicians since its inception in late 1953. 

In its early iterations, Les Paul himself wanted a guitar that “… looked like a Tuxedo,” and to match the looks, sounded undeniably amazing. Within the mahogany back and neck, the 2-piece plain maple cap, and ebony fretboard lies a little mystery that has had many pickers scratching their heads to ask “How can it sound so much different than any other Les Paul?!”

Luckily, many other musicians of note have claimed the Les Paul Custom as their primary axe for just this reason!  It became the guitar used in some of the earliest days of Rock and Roll History by Jimmy Page, The Edge, Randy Rhoads, Adam Jones of Tool, Peter Frampton, and Kirk Hammett.

This Les Paul Custom comes with an elegant ebony finish, adorned with gold hardware and mother of pearl inlaid Ebony fretboard. An instrument as gorgeous as this Les Paul Custom stands a tier higher than others with the incomparable & iconic Gibson split-diamond headstock inlay. 

From musical genres as vast as the earliest Rock & Roll to the Heaviest Distortion… you’ll be able to find your own elegant approach with this simply stunning Les Paul Custom! This Gibson Les Paul Custom will find a perfect place in your own guitar arsenal… and that’s no mystery!
