02' Gibson Custom Shop Bob Marley Limited Ed. Les Paul Special
Click To Enlarge

There are only a handful of artists who have had the musical, cultural & global impact of Bob Marley. As such, there are only a handful of guitars that can capture the his unique juxtaposition of things both natural & celestial; 200 guitars to be exact!! In 2002, the Gibson Custom Shop produced an extremely limited run of guitars commemorating Marley's customized Les Paul Special.. All of Bob's personal modifications and "playing imprints" are brought back to life with pain-staking hand-aged detail.
This particular example is among an elite few of those 200 to be aged by (none other than Gibson's most celebrated aging expert) Tom Murphy! Those familiar with Murpy's work will not be surprised to see just how realistic the aged-mahogany looks & feels. While there is no record of how many others Murphy actually worked on, I can tell you that this guitar was custom-ordered for Gibson Custom's UK division. It has a very low serial number; 19/200...

As if this package couldn't get any sweeter, I am including a huge hand-painted oil-on-canvas portrait of Bob Marley!! This is from my proud personal collection and is aleady pressed onto a borderless wooden frame. Also included, of course, are the Certificate of Authenticity & all paperwork/tags... So here is your chance to own a truly rare piece of music history, and to harness the Mojo of the most revolutiany musician ever!


* This guitar is in collector-grade condition & has barely been taken out of the case..

* Mahogany body & neck hand-aged by Tom Murphy ... Absolutely stunning! 


* Authentic vintage look, feel and tone.. 


* 100% factory Original 


* Lightweight, high-quality mahogany body; Non-chambered 


* Includes original Black/Purple Gibson Custom Shop case, COA, & all factory paperwork including factory tags & serial # checklist. Plus I am throwing in a huge 1-of-a-kind hand-painted Bob Marley portrait!!
