Grand Prize: Gibson Les Paul Standard ’50s – a classic valued at $2,499. The new Gibson Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved – shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson’s Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The Les Paul Standard ’50s has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50’s-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It’s equipped with the classic-style an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and aged gold tophat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
“Each year, Vintage Guitar sponsors Team Josie in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, in memory of my grandniece, the daughter of VG Online Consultant Joe Greenwood, who lost her battle with leukemia in ’07 at the age of 3. Understandably, this is an important charity for us and to date, we have raised more than $132,000, all of which has gone to the American Cancer Society.
“The money is generated via a raffle for instruments built and donated by our generous friends, and every penny we raise goes to the charity.
Remember your donation helps the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, crucial patient care services, and prevention and early detection programs. When you donate, you help save lives.
