A True "Pre-Historic" gem of  59' Les Paul Reissue

Her name is "Jersey Girl"

Here is an absolutely stunning & truly rare gem from the famous run of "Guitar Trader" 59' Reissues. Only about 47 of these fine instruments were produced and only the first 15 had original 50's PAF pickups. These guitars were made in the old tradition at the original Gibson Kalamzoo factory and then were shipped to Guitar Trader for the final touches. The first 15 customers to make a deposit or pay for their orderes had the chance to hand pick the top they wanted from the bunch and also recieved real 50's PAF pickups installed in their guitars. This is one of the incredibly special and rare 15!!! This guitar has been checked out, inspected, and appraised by Timm Kummer the original brainchild, vintage guitar expert, and manager/owner of the original Guitar Trader in... you guessed it New Jersey. He was personally responsible for the production specs, the final approval of the finish, and installed the PAF pickups himself. The guitar will be accompanied by the signed appraisal from him. After a few attempts of recreating the magic Gibson Custom was introduced in 1995 with the 1958-1960 Les Paul Reissue as their flagship model. Reissues produced prior to these first Historic pieces are now referred to as "Pre-Historic". These were some of the first accurate attempts to nail the process of re-creating the Holy-Grail of Les Pauls. It's clearly evident from the hand picked hard maple tops to the choicest figured mahogany and dark chocolaty brown rosewood that was available at the time, they were not cutting any corners! This particular example has one of the sweetest tops and finish that I have yet to see. The flames are strong and 3D all the way thru and they pop out at all angles. This baby will be sure to drop the jaw of even the pickiest collector. The girls will go nuts when they see one of these... A rock-star worthy axe that will only go up in value.


This particular example is easily one of if not the sweetest 59' reissues on the planet! Regardless of era! She has a stunning AAAAA flame-top with a deep 3D pattern.You will have a hard time finding a better sounding, resonant 33 year old guitar. This guitar ranks up there on the "as close to a $350,000 1959 Burst as you can get" scale… I am offering this gem at a price that will allow you to keep all of your vital organs in your body & all of your kids in college!! Add this baby to your collection & own a spectacular piece of the "Burst" history.
