Les Paul Classic M3

Classic M3

Here's an interesting piece of Gibson solid body history, made only in 1991/2 a Les Paul with a five way blade switch. I'm not sure whether this was an attempt to lure the Fender fanatics or just an experiment to see if a blade switch was an improvement or not. However it was not at all popular and was quickly discontinued. From a personal point of view, I love it. I can't understand why it was not better received, I think it is a great alternative with the single coil pickup and humbckers with coil taps add some great alternatives to a standard Les Paul. As for the finish it is sunburst finish on bound maple top, cherry finish on mahogany body and neck, bound rosewood fretboard, trapezoid inlays, 22 frets, Mark III electronics include hum/single/hum pickup configuration, 5 way blade switch, coil tap switch, volume and tone, stop bar tailpiece, ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge, headstock overlay features model decal and logo inlay, vintage style tuners, gold hardware, very cool, 1-11/16" nut, 24-3/4" scale, with OHSC, (SN:2 6956)
