Here is a beautiful & well perserved 12-year-old specimen from the early years of the Gibson Custom Art & Historic collection. 2001 was an incredible example of some of the best Reissues Gibson has ever put out for sale. 

ONLY 1000 OF THESE REISSUES WERE MADE IN 2001!! & ONLY 500 FOR THE U.S.A.Gibson Custom was introduced in 1995 with the "R9" 1959 Les Paul as their flagship model. The past 2 decades have seen many improvements in the process of re-creating the Holy-Grail of Les Pauls. Reissues from 1995-2003 are considered the "good-wood-years" due to the high quality mahogany body/necks, rich rosewood fingerboards & highly figured maple tops. The current demand for these early Custom Shop R9's ranks extremely high among all 1959 reissues.

 

This particular example is easily among the sweetest  R9's on the market! She has a perfect AAAAA flame-top with straight rippling flames running all the way to the edges. I hate to use the B word but I have and sold many Brazilian boards and this one looks like it and feels like it in every aspect. The fretboard is an extremely rich, dark, & glass like smooth rosewood that has many characteristics of the highly sought after BRAZILIAN boards!! there are officially 38 Confirmed Brazilian board produced by them in 2001 many aged by Tom Murphy. The solid (non-chambered) mahogany body is also top-shelf, with the entire guitar weighing just under 9 lbs... You will have a hard time finding a sweeter guitar. It has been played a little but is in excellent condition. This guitar sounds as sweet as it looks and sports upgraded Seymour Duncan Antiquity PAF pickups, that were WOUND and dated by SEYMOUR HIMSELF! We are offering this gem at a special 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...
