Gibson Custom Shop 1959 (R9) Les Paul Standard 'BOTB Cover Burst' 'Hand Selected

Gibson Custom Shop 1959 (R9) Les Paul Standard 'BOTB Cover Burst' 'Hand Selected


Here is an absolutely stunning 2016 'Beauty of the Burst' Cover star lookalike Gibson 1959 Custom Shop reissue ‘Hand Selected’ Les Paul. These individual guitars were carefully hand-selected from the Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee by the representatives of top Japanese dealers with the highest knowledge of Gibson Custom Instruments who took them back to Japan. This one is has been designated 'BOTB Cover Burst' in the Hand Selected booklet. It’s an amazing looking top as you'd expect from a Japanese hand selected R9. There is so much movement going on here that the pics don’t get anywhere near to it. It has stunning curly maple with Tigerish 3D maple flame and mineral streaking. A stunning R9 in every sense of the word.  Complete with all case candy inc certificate of authenticity booklet & also the separate corresponding hand selected certificate, both bearing the guitar's serial number along with the pre-pack checklist. Great feeling '59 profile neck and Gibson factory fitted Custom Buckers  Nice and light at 4kg. Very clean. The white specs you can see are just dust. Obviously no issues at all, no breaks, repairs or modifications. Complete with pickguard, Condition is very clean with no notable dings. Comes with all case candy, COA and original historic pink velvet crush lined Lifton reissue hard shell case also in great condition.  Has had the full VOS treatment from Gibson's custom shop so some intentional light ageing all over. This represents the absolute best of the best when it comes to a 1959 Custom Shop reissue. I’ll let the pics do the rest of the talking.
