 Excellent condition, with OHSC, C of A signed by Rick, and an amazing guitar!

 

For the last 25 years, an original 1959 Les Paul has been along for the ride, flying precariously through the air in the hands of Rick Nielsen, who hasn't spent much time without it since the two found each other a quarter century ago. He's become so attached to the original that he insists on bringing it on the road, a demand that his road crew isn't too thrilled about. "It's a valuable guitar, so it takes up most of our insurance rider coverage," Rick observes with a laugh.

So that Rick can travel with the authentic look, tone, and feel of his original, and so that a few players and collectors can enjoy an ownership experience to rival Rick's own, Gibson Custom has worked directly with Rick and his original 1959 Les Paul to replicate his original at a level of detail so fine that Rick himself put the prototype and the original side by side and declared the results "remarkable."
