2001 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue R9
Click To Enlarge

Here we have a unique & beautifully 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 AAAA+ Quilted maple top. This was obviously one of the hand-picked top's with a deeply-quilted top that is one-of-a-kind. Another stunning feature is the exotic rosewood fretboard with a very distinguishable grain pattern. This is undoubtably a collector's piece that truly stands head & shoulders above the endless sea of dime-a-dozen used guitars out there. Here is your chance to attain rare perfection with 6 strings!
 

* This guitar is in near-mint condition, with absolutely minimal play-wear anywhere. The only signs of use are a few faint marks on the back, and a pin-sized ding on the lower horn. The nickel plating on the tailpiece is very slightly faded.

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

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

* 59 neck, with 57 Classic pickups, PAF tone!

* Lightweight, high-quality wood; 8 lbs 11 oz, Non-chambered!

* Includes original Gibson Custom Shop Lifton Reissue case (worth $500 alone) as well as the Certificate of Authenticity, tags & case candy.
