Zappa on stage with Gibson Gold & Motorhead Sherwood

From Modern Guitars Magazine:
"A 1952/53 Gibson Les Paul model, in gold/natural finish, single cutaway mahogany body with maple top, bound mahogany neck, twenty-two fret rosewood fingerboard with crown inlays, headstock facia with Les Paul MODEL, one P-90 single coil pickup, one single coil pickup, one humbacking pickup, six rotary controls, toggle switch, pick-up selector switch, metal bridge with Bigsby tremolo tailpiece; and an original brown Lifton hardshell contour case painted green with pink plush lining. This guitar was customised by Frank Zappa who used it on stage and in studio during the mid-1960s. According to his interview with Steve Rosen that appeared in Guitar Player magazine in 1977, this was his main guitar before he acquired his famous mid-60s SG."

Ndlr: cette guitare est à vendre en Grande Bretagne mais nous croyons bien avoir lu 'somewhere' que Gail Zappa voulait tenter de la récupérer par des voies légales 'cause elle avait été volée à l'époque:
... à vérifier !
