    Hey!

    A friend of mine got a Gherson Les Paul copy.
    I can't seem to find anything on it anywhere on the web, so I was hoping some of the guitarfreaks in here could help me...?
    Any info is welcome :)

    I think it's the one to the left.

    Thanks.

    Hey Cold, all I know is... I've got one too!

    Mine's pretty bashed, bought used from brother-in-law about 20 years ago, but was my favourite guitar for many years. Mine's black. I'd be interested to hear any background on gherson... I think mine must be 70's guitar.

    Gherson Les Paul

    Gherson was an Italy brand who produced in seventies and eighties copy of famous american guitar, mainly les pauls, gibson SG (I remember also a two neck SG, like the one Jimmy Page used). These guitars were cheap and sold to people who start playing guitar.

    I've found a little more about Gherson guitars, from various sources (including translating from Italian!) - The brand belongs to a company created by SNC Menghini Menghini Alfredo, its factory is located near RECATINI CASTELFIDARDO in the province of Marche.

    More details here: http://www.guitar-collector.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=61

    Also, my Gherson Les Paul copy for sale, if anyone's interested (UK) - details here: http://www.guitar-collector.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=112&hilit=gherson

    Open to offers!

    Hi, I write from Italy. Gherson was a brand of guitars produced in Castelfidardo, near Ancona. I have one, a like-Stratocaster 80's. If you lik more informations (in italian) and photos, go to www.fetishguitars.com , you can find a lot of photos about Gherson and more others italian brands of 60's 70's and 80's
