This is a 1990 Gibson Les Paul Custom neon sign that only went to Gibson dealers who placed a qualifying order. They were not availble for purchase to the public nor to non participating dealers, thus they are extremely rare. These were made in the U.S. by North American Neon which no longer exists. This has been stored in our basement since the transformer went bad in the mid 90s. We have recently installed a new transformer and it works great. The original transformer is heavy and remains installed as it is necessory weight to make the sign stable on a countertop. This sign can also be hung with 2 chains. No modifications were made to the frame of the sign for the new transformer, we made a bracket that's removeable with 2 small bolts. The original transformer can probably be rewound so we tucked the pull switch and a decent stubb of the ac cable inside the transformer housing. The rest of the ac cable is included, can be reattached inside the housing. The 2 original transformer output cables are clipped but if it's rewound there will be new ones anyway. The new cables are soldered and double shrink tubed, it's a nice clean job. The sign measures apx 37 inches long by 17.5 high.
