Used Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss
Just in on trade and priced to move! w/Case, Ceritificate, etc...
Just in on trade from Keith Nelson of the band Buckcherry. Keith is an avid collector of premium gear and knows how to choose a good electric guitar. This Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Reissue is no exception. It is a 2013 model with High Gloss Tobacco Sunburst finish. It was used briefly on the road before I took it on trade as part of a multi guitar deal. So there are a few dings and dents, and he had Gibson put Grover tuners on it to replace the original vintage style Klusons it came with, but overall the condition is very nice (no significant issues, damage, repairs, etc...). I believe that the pickups have been changed to WCR or something similar- Sorry but I do not know specifically other than they are absolutely fantastic sounding. This guitar is light, loud and lively. Extremely resonant acoustically and increidbly responsive when plugged in. The top also has deep, strong, 3 Dimensional figure throughout. Like all our used / vintage gear it has been tested for funcitonality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get.
