 A Jaw Dropping Top on a Limited Edition Jewel
You will have a hard time finding an R-9 to compete with this one... She is a Collector's gem, Limted Edition "Shadows of 59"  only 1 of 25 to be made. and it has a monster AAAAA flametop. This special baby has an unfaded cherry finish underneath the toggle switch and pickguard as would a real 54 year old Les Paul. It's realy cool and rarely ever has been done by gibson before. I believe it's an attempt to compete with some of the more accurate replicas made by various well know builders that sometimes pay closer attention to intricate details of the aging process. This guitar has many desireable and never before available option all on one model. For instance it has a gloss finish with a faded looking Felder Burst color with the previously mentioned unfaded cherry red finish under neath the toggle switch and pickguard. While having slightly aged metal and plastic partsLike a real 1959 Les Paul that had been stashed away in a closet or underneath a bed. Naturally the metal and plastic parts would fade even id the guitar sat virtually untouched for 54 years. This guitar if real would be like finding the holly grail of all holly grails. It has all the new 2013 appointments that make these easily the most accurate reissues since the run of Brazilian board in 2003. It has the hot hide glue neck set, 1 piece rosewood fretboard, real celluloid inlays, new vintage accurate truss rod with no sleeve, Custom Buckers pickups, correct aniline dye in the cherry pore filler for the back color, new neck and body binding with a more accurate vintage color, & new single line Kluson tuners. Heck even the cases have been improved and have a more accurate shape and top "carve".


You don't have to look under a microscope to see the checking on the insanely nice and very deep 3-D  curly flamed maple top on this beauty. It has a perfect and solid 1 piece rosewood board with beautiful dark black color. The performance of this guitar is everything you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, with top-shelf craftsmanship & sweet clean PAF tone. Make this rare 1959 Reissue Les Paul yours and add some unique "mojo" to your collection.
