2002 Gibson Custom Les Paul R9 '59 Reissue

  • Sale
  • Regular price £3,800.00

A superb, all original example of the Custom Shop '59 reissue Les Paul. A one owner guitar, these earlier R9's really are a cut above. Much more limited production than more recent models. This particular example is just right, the right weight, the right neck profile, the right neck angle, super dark rosewood board, stunning flame and to top it all, it absolutely howls. A little light buckle rash to the back and a few very minor marks, but really very clean condition for a guitar approaching 20 years old. Complete with reissue Lifton case, 2002 only original owners card, full set of case candy and early style Gibson Custom certificate of authenticity.
