1983 was a year of change for Gibson, when it first began to concentrate on reissuing vintage spec instruments. While we're all vintage-crazy now, this was a fairly new idea then. They knew that to get the necessary attention, they would have to do something special. The Spotlight was the answer. Using contrasting, figured woods, Gibson's Les Paul Spotlight guitars did indeed cause a lot of players to give them a second look.
Gibson now brings back the Spotlight in beautiful flame maple, with all the vintage features you love: C-shaped mahogany set neck and mahogany body, '57 Classic Humbucker pickups, Grover tuners, gold hardware and a sweet lacquer finish.

These are great guitars, I own one and am very happy with it, They look much better in person than in the pictures. I love the C-shaped neck. I used to own an '83 Spotlight Special and I think this guitar is every bit as nice. Main differences are the 3" walnut stripe and '57 classic pups. Other differences like binding and tuners but this guitar in it's own way is every bit as nice as the original '83's.
