2012 Gibson Custom Shop R9 59' Les Paul Reissue YAMANO
Click To Enlarge

Here is an absolutely gorgeous & brand new gem from this new era of the Gibson Custom Shop. It's a Yamano R9 in a beautiful and limited "Lemonburst" finish. Gibson Custom was introduced in 1995 with the 1958-1960 Les Paul Reissue 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 reissues ranks extremely high among Gibsons product line, making it a "fan favorite" of mostly everybody. It's clearly evident from the hand picked hard maple tops to the figured mahogany and rosewood that they are trying to put out a great product to compete with some of the previously acclaimed "eras", they are not cutting any corners! This particular example has a super sweet top and coolest finishes that I have yet to see. The flames are wild with a quilt/flame thing going on. This baby will be sure to drop the jaw of most. The girls will go nuts when they see one of these... A rock-star worthy axe that sounds and plays as good as it looks! This particular example is easily one of if not the sweetest R9 on the market! Regardless of era! She has a stunning AAAA flame-top with a crazy nice finish.
