For sale is a 1982 Gibson Kalamazoo Les Paul Leo's '59 Reissue in Cherry Sunburst with the original case. This guitar is in very good condition and in perfect working order. There are some light scratches and dings throughout. Overall, I would rate the condition, a solid 8.5 out of 10. Everything on the guitar is original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues and plays great. The original frets are in excellent condition with only very minor wear. There is no buzzing or dead spots. The original case has a broken handle but works great.
Leo’s Les Pauls, promoted as a “limited edition series” were made for Leo’s Music, Oakland, from approximately 1980 through ’85. Approximately 800 were made, with at least half going overseas. The Leo’s models built in Kalamazoo, which has the eight-digit serial number inside the control cavity (like the Guitar Traders) are considered a bit more collectible, but production was shifted to Nashville in ’83, and Leo’s models from there are very nice guitars, as well (Nashville-made Leos can be identified by small, black side dot markers and no serial number in the control cavity).
