First version of Gibson’s Howard Roberts Fusion series, this Series I was Howard’s favorite because it closely followed his input and the prototype he was given by Gibson. It is in near-mint original condition with no issues, no repairs, and no modifications. It comes complete with the original Schaller factory stop tailpiece and Schaller tuneamatic bridge, Gibson humbucking pickups, and original hard case. It has a beautifully flamed maple top, a very straight and well-rounded neck, and an ebony fretboard with excellent original frets.
These first Series HRs are the most desirable due to their high quality, rarity, and the standard stop tailpiece. A very versatile instrument, capable of a wide range of musical genres. Semi-solid construction with an internal wood block to cancel feedback while retaining a very sweet and full tone and voice. Comes with its original brown hard case. A real winner!
