Used Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Electric Guitar With OHSC and C of A

$ 4,999.99

What a great instrument this one is, both is looks, and sound! This gorgeous 2014 Gibson Les Paul ’59 Reissue has one of the coolest looking tops we’ve seen in a  while. Very cool looking, and somewhat calming. Like staring at waves in the ocean for hours. Great feeling neck, the frets have lots of life still in them, and the tone is outrageous!

Going from a chimney clean sound to a terrific overdriven sound, is one stomp away, and this bay can handle it no problem. 

It include the OHSC, C of A, and complimentary set up as well.

While all 1958-'60 Les Pauls are among the most sought-after electric guitars ever made, the '59 Burst is often considered among aficionados to be the crème de la crème of the range. They are also exceedingly rare, with only 635 guitars shipped that year. With sales of the Les Paul declining every year since 1953, the year after its release, Gibson decided in 1958 to update the look of the model with an elegant Cherry Sunburst finish.

Guitars from that first year of the Burst's production often had relatively plain maple tops, but through the course of 1959, Gibson's craftsmen built Les Pauls with tops that displayed more and more highly-figured grains, making these among the most collectible of the breed today. The 1959 Les Paul Reissue from Gibson Custom accurately recreates the original hallowed '59 Burst in every detail.

These are all represented with utmost accuracy in the 1959 Les Paul Reissue, while the guitar also benefits from Gibson Custom's 20th Anniversary Specifications, newly adopted for 2013. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye.
