Collector's Choice #24 Charles Daughtry 1959 Les Paul "Nicky"

A Gorgeous Re-creation of a Burst Collector's Favorite '59

Gibson Custom

 

$10,499

 

The Closest Thing Possible to Darling "Nicky": a Burst That Dreams Are Made Of

Collector's Choice #24 1959 Les Paul aka "Nicky" follows the Collector's Choice series ethos in bringing to life the favorite original '59 Burst of collector Charles Daughtry, while stepping it all up to an unprecedented new level of fanaticism for 2015 thanks to the new True Historic specifications, representing our most dedicated efforts yet to perfectly re-create the look, feel and tone of original vintage Les Pauls. Distinct details such as a hand-matched lightly figured maple top, double-pass dish and neck carve taken from scans of the original, aged period-correct appointments taken from molecular-level analysis of the originals, an Historic truss rod, accurately measured and reproduced PAF humbuckers, and a deliciously faded wet-sanded thin-lacquer Lemonburst finish on a carefully hand-aged guitar make this an amazing opportunity for player and collector alike.

 

 

A thin and sweetly faded Lemonburst finish on a subtly figured top distinguish this collector's favorite '59 Burst, beautifully re-created to our superbly accurate 2015 True Historic specifications.

 

Precise Replica of Original Serial # 9-1945

Hand crafted to perfection based on hands-on access and intense study of the original guitar.

 

True Historic Plastics

Based on lab analysis of original Gibson plastics from the 1950's, the plastics on the True Historics including the Toggle Washer, Cream Jackplate, Cream Pickguard, Pickup Mounting Rings and Toggleswitch Cap, have been reformulated and re-engineered to the original specifications of their vintage counterparts.

 

True Historic Pickup Covers

Engineered and manufactured to capture every angle and nuance of original vintage pickup covers.

 

Double-Carved Top

To recapture the top carve profile of original Vintage Gibson Les Pauls, all True Historic Les Pauls are double carved by CNC, with the final shape of their dish carve achieved through a hand-sanding process.

 

Double-Carved Neck

The necks on all True Historic guitars are double-carved and then hand sanded to achieve that legendary vintage Gibson neck profile; the "beefy", solid feel of a beautifully hand-crafted Les Paul that rests in the player's hand like no other guitar.

 

"Broken" Peghead Edges, Smoother Edges

Hand-sanded peghead, neck and body edges beautifully capture the look and feel of a true vintage Les Paul.

 

Thinner Peghead Veneer

While you can't see it on a finished Les Paul, original 50's guitars from Gibson had a thinner peghead veneer. In 2015, all True Historic guitars feature this thoughtful detail in their mission to be as close to an original as possible.

 

Thinner True Historic Wet-Sanded Finish

All True Historic guitars from Gibson Custom are sprayed with thinner finishes, as were the original 1950's guitars, and are now had wet-sanded for beauty and authenticity.

 

Hide Glue Top Construction

Along with all hide glue neck construction, Gibson Custom extends the use of hide glue to join the back and top of every True Historic guitar, just as it was done in the 1950's.

 

Rolled Fingerboard Binding

One of the most magical aspects of an original 50's Les Paul is its smooth, natural feel. We hand-file the fingerboard binding on every True Historic Les Paul to capture that feel precisely.
