Here is a stunning, immaculately preserved 15-year-old gem  from the "good Wood Years" of the Gibson Custom Art & Historic collection. Gibson Custom was introduced in 1995 with the "R9" 1959 Les Paul 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 R9's ranks extremely high among all 1959 reissues.
This particular example is both the cleanest & most stunning 90's R9 you will find anywhere! She has a mind-bending AAAAA flame-top with deeply defined ripples running all the way to the edges. You will have a hard time finding a cleaner 15 year old guitar, barely taken out of her case. This guitar ranks up there on the "as close to a $250,000 1959 Burst as you can get" scale... Add this baby to your collection & own a crucial piece of the "Burst" history...

 
* This guitar is in Mint Collector Grade condition, with virtually zero play-wear anywhere; Insanely clean.

* There is no sign of it being played at all, even the pick guard is clean. 
There is also no bleeding of the finish on the neck by the binding or   anywhere else.

* Monster AAAAA flamed maple top... Absolutely stunning! 

* Authentic vintage look, feel and tone.. Plays like a $250K+ 59' Standard with PAF's

* There have been no technical/structural modifications, damage, or repairs 

* 59 neck, with "57' Classic" PAF reissue pickups, true 50's tone!

* Super lightweight, high-quality mahogany body; Non-chambered 90's "Good-Wood"

* Includes original Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case, with factory tags & serial # card. 1998 pre-dates the standard issueing of a "Certificate of Authenticity", The serial card was used for that purpose...
