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

Here is a stunning, beautifully preserved 100% Original 13-year-old gem  from the "good Wood Years" of the Gibson Custom Art & Historic collection. It's a limited edition Killer Quilt top from a limited run made for Wildwood Guitars by the Gibson Custom Shop. As you may or may not know COA's were not issued with most guitars in 2000. This baby does!! It is a special guitar and the COA is hand signed by Rick Gembar. The Gibson Custom Shop 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 accuracy & 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 one of the most stunning R9 you will find anywhere! She has a mind-bending AAAAA Quilt-Top with deeply defined ripples running all the way to the edges. You will have a hard time finding a cleaner 13 year old guitar, barely taken out of her case. This guitar is beautiful and sounds as good as it looks. It has a great pair of sweet and rich sounding pickups that give a warm and clear tone with plenty of bottom end and bite. Add this baby to your collection & own a crucial piece of the "Burst" history...
