Gibson 2006 Yamano Ordered Custom Shop Historic 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue
Up for grabs is this beautiful Yamano ordered Gibson Custom Shop figured 1959 (R9) Burst Reissue from 2006. This R9 features an absolutely stunning figured burst top displaying some vibrant maple flame and mineral streaking from top to bottom. This would have been one of the last selected for export to Japan by Yamano, where all the best looking tops went during this period, especially some of the early Custom Shop historics like this one. No issues at all, no breaks or repairs. Beautiful carve to the top and the weight is very good at 4kg. Lovely ’59 profile neck carve. It’s a superb playing Les Paul and has been played and not locked away, so has some light natural playwear, which is no bad thing at all. There is plenty of life in the frets, the truss rod has been checked and working fine and the neck is dead straight. In nice condition all over with just light playwear. There are some buckle scrapes on the back. It comes complete with its original tan Lifton historic hardshell case, which is in fine condition with all latches working fine. It also includes original Gibson Custom Shop certificate and the Japanese Yamano booklet amongst other case candy. Read up on the Yamanos if you are not aware on their history with Gibson… Yamano had a lot of say in what guitars their Japanese representatives were able to hand-select individual guitars due to the volume they imported from the USA to Japan from the 90’s to the mid 2000’s (a period which also coincided with some of Gibson’s finest work). They had the pick of the bunch when it came to choosing the guitars they took back with them. This is one such guitar. Don't miss it.
At Gas Station Guitars we carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special. All pictures are of actual guitars, all guitars are in hand and we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship worldwide to the USA, E.U, Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and of course the UK.
