40th Anniversary 59' Les Paul Reissue
1/500

 
Here is a stunning, incredibly well preserved gem celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the iconic Gibson Les Paul Standard from 1959. 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. These 40th Anniversary Les Pauls are a must have for any serious collector of Les Pauls. This one has a stunning top and a perfect finish. The sound of these Les Pauls are absolutely second to none and sound every bit as sweet as you would hope and imagine that it does. This One has been collector owned and rarely played. It is in excellent condition and has every single accessory and paper that it did when it left the factory. This is not just a Les Paul made in 1999 but a 40th Anniversary model.

Here is a true Collector's piece that holds it's own in rarity, craftsmanship, and overall beauty! In 1999, Gibson Custom celebrated the 40th anniversary of the "59' Burst" by building 500 of their improved 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissues. The first true "Anniversary R-9" was among the highlights of the Custom Shop's first half-decade. The late 90's Reissues have seen a rise in demand, value & collectibility. Aside from the special Certificates & packaging, several steps were taken in 1999 to create a more accurate 1959 replica. All of the materials for these guitars were carefully handpicked; highly figured maple top, lightweight slab mahogany body, hand-wound 57' classic PAF humbuckers, rich rosewood fretboard w/ improved binding... everything to ensure that this limited Anniversay run would be cherished by collectors for years to come. To date, this has been considered among the most accurate and desired 59' reissues produced.
This particular example is easily the sweetest one on the market! She has a jaw-dropping AAAAA top, perfect feel & tone. It's also in excellent, collection worthy condition. This guitar is a work of art and sounds every bit as nice as you would expect it to. This is the COMPLETE PACKAGE including BOTH the black Gibson Custom Shop case & the brown/pink Lifton Reissue case. To my knowledge, these were the VERY FIRST Lifton Reissue cases and were made specifically for this model. Also noteworthy is the 40th Anniversary Certificate Of Authenticity, as this was among the earliest models to include a C.O.A... All the rest of the original factory trimmings round off this amazing package at a price that will NOT have you taking the bus to work & pulling your kids out of college!! Add this baby to your collection & own a crucial piece of the "Burst" history...

 
* Stunning AAAAA top! A true testament to the 90's  "Good Wood Years" quality.

* Includes both factory hardshell cases (Gibson Custom & Lifton Reissue), 40th Anniversary C.O.A, all factory    tags/checklist, strap, & a copy of the "Beauty Of The Burst" book.

* The guitar is in near mint collector grade condition, with minimal play-wear anywhere. No dings, dents, or    major scratches.

* There is a small area on the back with ultra fine superficial buckle marks (nothing thru the finish) & a couple    of fine scratches on the back control cavity plate.
  
* Authentic vintage look, feel and tone. The finish is perfect and the sounds is top notch. I have not had a    sweeter sounding guitar.

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

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

* Lightweight, non chambered, high-quality mahogany body.
