2000 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue R9
Click To Enlarge

Here we have a beautiful & perfectly preserved specimen from the glory days of the Gibson Custom Shop Historic Series. There is an overwhelming demand for these R9's produced between 1995-2003. This particular example is the "cream of the crop," sporting a mind-numbing AAAAA+ quilted maple top. This was obviously one of the hand-picked top's, with a deep 3-D pattern running all the way to the edges, like a sea of bubbling lava!! You will rarely find a 12 year old guitar like this in near-perfect condition, appearing to have seldom left its case. The Pickgaurd has never even been installed! This is undoubtably a collector's piece that truly stands head & shoulders above the endless sea of dime-a-dozen new & used R9's out there.  Here is your chance to attain rare perfection with 6 strings!
 

* This guitar is in Collector Grade condition, with virtually zero play-wear anywhere

* Authentic vintage look, feel and tone.. Plays like a $200K+ 59 Standard with PAF's
