 1999 was the 40th Anniversary of the Absolutely

Timeless and Iconic 1959 Les Paul

 

Meet "Gina"
She is a beautiful & perfectly perserved 18-year-old specimen from the early years of the Gibson Custom Art & Historic collection. It has a breath taking wild and curvy flamed maple top like no other I have seen. It's really cool and eye cathing. It sets it apart from all the other repetitive flamd tops out there. This one has some character and it really pops at all angles. 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 easily the sweetest 90's R9 on the market! She has a perfect AAAA flame-top with rippling, quilted flames running all the way to the edges. You will have a hard time finding a cleaner 14 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... We are offering this gem at a price that will allow you to keep all of your vital organs!! Add this baby to your collection & own a crucial piece of the "Burst" history...
