In the late 1970s, the Custom Van craze defined automotive culture in the same way the Gibson Les Paul Custom defined the sound of rock music.
And both the Street Vans and the Les Pauls of the 1970s have seen a resurgence in popularity over the past few years, prompting this fun mash-up -- the Les Paul Custom "Boogie Van." Each guitar features unique three-tone paint schemes, custom chrome hardware, a 1970s-style three piece maple neck, underwound Super '74 humbuckers, and a hot-stamped truss rod cover with "Boogie Van" artwork.
This piece of musical marquetry features over a dozen hand-cut wedges of solid mahogany formed into the body of a Les Paul Junior, aligning perfectly into a central point beneath the bridge pickup.
The utilitaran design and understated transparent lacquer finish beautifully plays off the complex woodwork of the body, making for a Les Paul that is as much a statement piece as it is a pro-level instrument.
