Charles Daughtry '59 Les Paul Burst CC 24A 079
“A Gorgeous re-creation of a Burst Collector's Favorite '59”
Used! Just in on trade and absolutely incredible! “Nicky” (aka 9 1945) is one of the most well-known and iconic vintage 1959 Les Paul Standard guitars ever produced - Owned by renowned Burst Collector Charles Daughtry. “Nicky” is #24 in the Collector’s Choice series of tribute guitars produced by Gibson and this particular instrument is #079 - Aged by Tom Murphy.
Nicky’s details are immense to a granular level. The replication and authenticity is so precise it borders on counterfeit! Using True Historic specifications further dialed-in to replicate this # 9 1945 exactly, these guitars represent Gibson’s most dedicated efforts yet to perfectly re-create the look, feel and tone of original vintage Les Pauls. Distinct details such as hand-matched, figured maple top, accurate dish and neck carve taken from precise digital scans of the original, aged period-correct appointments taken from molecular-level analysis, accurately measured and reproduced PAF humbuckers, and a lovingly hand-distressed, Faded Lemonburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish, make this guitar an amazing opportunity for player and collector alike.
As with all Collector’s Choice guitars by Gibson, Nicky’s details were photographed, digitally scanned, and documented by the Engineers and Craftspeople in the Gibson Custom Shop, which shows in every nuance of tone, feel and beauty captured in the recreation of this stunning example of an original 1959 Burst.
No serious issues, damage or repairs. The stock finish is aged/distressed, but there do not appear to be any additional dings, dents or wear added later. Like all our used/vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get.
