Click To Enlarge

 

Here is a beautiful & very well perserved 15-year-old specimen from the most celebrated era of the Gibson Custom Art & Historic collection. 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". This transition saw many improvements in the process of re-creating the Holy-Grail of Les Pauls. The current demand for these early Custom Shop R8's ranks extremely high among all 50's reissues.

This particular example is easily the sweetest 90's R8 on the market! She has a stunning AAA flame-top with a deep 3D pattern that is enhanced by the wood. She has the a similar appearence to the Slash Appetite For Destruction guitar, with an "Amber" nitro finish on the top offset by the cherry neck & body. You will have a hard time finding a cleaner 15 year old guitar, rarely taken out of her case. This guitar ranks up there on the "as close to a $250,000 1958 Burst as you can get" scale... We are 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 crucial piece of the "Burst" history...
