What We Think

This is a very, very special guitar, in near-mint, virtually like-new condition, that came out of a Million Dollar Guitar Collection where it was maintained in proper climate and humidity conditions.  This is a rare opportunity to pick up a truly unique (numbered 6 of only 6 made) collectors piece from among the finest Luthiers in the Gibson Custom Shop.

This absolutely glorious instrument plays and sound with the dimensionality and tone that you can only expect from a world-class combination of Adironack top and Madagascar Rosewood back and sides.  The projection, and warmth are indeed magical.  A truly impressive piece of Madagascar Rosewood was used to create this gem of an instrument, of which the care and attention to detail exceed most instruments we have seen released from even the top-of-the-line offerings of the Gibson Custom Shop.

Gibson no longer uses Madagascar on any of their guitars.  This greatly enhances the value, and long-term collectability of this incredible instrument.   It includes some appointments, such as the mother-of-pearl inlay binding, that are only found in Gibson’s $20,000 Monarch.  Yet the tone, being an incredibly short-run Luthier’s Choice Guitar and playability of this instrument exceed most Monarchs.

This guitar deserves special attention and we encourage you to contact Sound Pure today for more information.

About Manufacturer

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
