A Burst So Pristine it could have stepped from a Time Capsule
An encounter with a genuine '59 Les Paul® is breathtaking on any occasion, but when it's a genuine one-owner 'Burst like this one the experience is almost too intense for words. Loved and carefully played by its original owner for nearly five decades, this stunning Les Paul® popped up in 2008 when the owner contacted Gibson®. Gibson® consulted noted Burst aficionado Vic DaPra–who just had to have it. Ultimately, Vic passed this gem along to an anonymous Texas collector, known for his generous entrustment of his prized collection to a network of active players. Now Gibson® Custom brings you Collector's Choice™ #30 1959 Les Paul® aka "Gibson® Appraisal Burst/Gabby", a detail-perfect re-creation of one of the best preserved 'Bursts ever known. From its rich Cherry Red finish that remains remarkably strong and unfaded, to its gorgeously three-dimensional figured maple top with minimal playing wear, to its precise neck shape and top carve–and the Custom Buckers that accurately re-create its original PAFs–this is as close as you can possibly come to owning an immaculate vintage '59 Les Paul®. Gabby will be produced in a Limited Edition of up to 300 guitars, as qualifying materials allow.
