1983 Gibson Spirit Guitar
You are looking at a rare 1983 Gibson Spirit in a custom order wine red color from Gibson with serial number 80693554 produced at the Kalamazoo factory. These guitars were only made from 82-88 and are quickly becoming sought out by collectors. The guitar is solid as a rock with no issues at all. I am its third owner and with the exception of two small holes drilled in order to install a pick guard this guitar has been well taken care off.
I have several of these and used them as my main guitars for all my live shows. I like mine with battle scars and this one would be a shame to abuse. I felt guilty enough about the buckle rash and pick markings it sustained when I used it for a few shows. The buckle rash in the back as well as the pick markings in the front can very easily be buffed out with a very fine sanding but Iíll leave that up to the buyer.
As for condition, it has a few typical dings and less than normal player wear for a 24 year old guitar. The paint has the typical hair cracks beneath the clear coat finish (Refer to neck joint picture) not visible in the pictures and hard to see unless looking for them. The action is low with no buzzing and is currently set up with 10ís.
The tone youíll get from this guitar is incredible clean, crisp and powerful thanks to its super rare factory Gibson patent number pickups designed by Tim Shaw. Good luck finding pickups that hold their own next to these. Overall a great looking example and again....A very rare find.
