1996 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard RI
Click To Enlarge

Here is an perfect & beautifully preserved specimen from the early days of the Gibson Custom Shop Historic Series. The ambition of a young Custom Shop paired with the now legendary 1990's Gibson quality AND an unreal AAAAA flamed maple top all adds up to a truly special instrument. You will rarely find a 16 year old guitar in such stunning condition, appearing to have seldom left its case. This is undoubtably a collector's piece that truly stands head & shoulders above the endless sea of dime-a-dozen used guitars out there. The new owner will receive an absolute gem of a guitar with it's entire life ahead of it!
