MAKER OF FINE GUITARS & MANDOLINS
...........Colin's website is in the process of revision, therefore some sections not fully operational, but still useful guide to the scope of his high-quality Guitar Making.
...a guitar being regretfully sold by the owner who commissioned it's making, purely because Arthritis problems prevent him from continuing to get full use of it.
Stock Number: VTGC1060.
Really impressive guitar, which Colin Keefe was clearly very pleased to see back in his workshop, commenting on it's unbelievably good & clean condition after 14 years, and also what a resonant guitar it is, even unplugged, of a true Les Paul weight, so you can imagine how good the plugged in sound is with those high-quality pickups installed.
Equipped with Gold hardware, including Seymour Duncan humbucker pick-ups, p/u switch, Tune-o-matic bridge & stop tailpiece....the standard configuration for the range of shaped-topped/capped bodied range of Les Paul models, including the Standard, Goldtop & Custom, but a variation also adopted by Gibson themselves on their current slab-bodied models, the "Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Top". Quote from the current Gibson website regarding the origins of that model....."We took a 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cut and added a figured maple top, body binding, Custombuckers, and an ABR-1 bridge and stop bar setup."
The rest of the "furniture" includes Black pickup rings, matching p/u switch tip. and Top Hat 2 x Volume & 2 x Tone Control knobs, plus anodised charcoal grey colour Gotoh tuning machines, and matching front & rear strap buttons. The guitar was finished in 2006 and is no 74 in Colin Keefe's log, where the pickups are noted to be Seymour Duncan "Antiquity" humbuckers.
Scale: standard Gibson length 24.75"/629mm.
Nut Width: standard Gibson 1&11/16th.inch/1.69"/42.9mm.
I'm sure that the photos more than adequately show the great condition and quality looks. As confirmed above, the guitar has been checked over by Colin Keefe, himself before sale....any use marks are of the most minor nature.
Action......set up checked with Colin Keefe....no adjustment needed at 1.5mm./2.25mm. at 12th. fret.
Strings.....existing 10-46 Regular Light gauge strings set fitted....I will either re-string with similar gauge strings or leave for buyer to re-string with their own preferred choice.
Case........"Freestyle" Hard-shell, locking case, with key, and blue lined interior probably, used since guitar was new, is included.

Unfortunately the YouTube content for Colin Keefe Guitars is devoted to his superb acoustics, but I have embedded links showing the quality of these instruments, from which you will readily appreciate that his electric instruments will be of the same exceptional standard.
