Gibson Les Paul – Sunken Treasure

The Gibson Les Paul Sunken Treasure is a limited run made of reclaimed wood. In 2016 it came with a natural Natural and River Green color option. 

Gibson Les Paul Sunken Treasure – Natural

The body of the guitar is made of mahogany that came from a riverbed in Belize.  It is a modern weight relief body with a carved mahogany top, creme binding around the edges. 

According to Gibson these have a one-piece or two-piece body and a two-piece top. This one has a one-piece body and it is hard to see if it is a one- or two-piece top. 

The neck is made of mahogany as well. It is rounded in the back and has a 22-fret fingerboard made of bulletwood on top (A very dense wood also reclaimed from the riverbed). 

The guitar features `57 Classic pickups and they provide a distinct rock tone with a nice low end.

Merry Christmas

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Lots of love, lots of health and happiness for you and your family. 2020 was an annus horribilis for many of us but hey… the only way is UP!

What better way to close this year with a special guitar. The Oz is a Tele-style guitar by Patrick James Eggle (UK). Top and neck are made from 5000 year old bog oak. This thing is older than the pyramids. So what’s another year…?

Seasons Greetings from all of us at Château PGC. Have Fun! Keep it safe!
