What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent. Historic Makeover Applied to Guitar

I think I'm in love! This may very well be the best Les Paul we've ever played, and that claim doesn't come lightly. Every detail of this guitar has been carefully crafted to accurately recreate a 1959 Les Paul with serial number 9-1228, and the effort of Gibson's team shines through. The carefully bookmatched flame maple, true to life aging, weight and feel are all exactly as they should be. To top it all off, the historic makeover in addition to the limited nature of these collector's choice runs ensures this is a true one of one!

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.
