Here’s a gorgeous 2014 Gibson Custom Shop R9 1959 Les Paul with a spectacular tightly flamed and crosshatched top and finished in a gloss iced tea burst. No pickguard installed. This guitar looks like it just stepped out of a time machine from 10 years ago, near mint and still looks new. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, an Authentic 59 medium C neck carve, hide glue fit top and fingerboard, CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers, paper-in-oil capacitors and historic Lifton style case with all case candy, certificate of authenticity booklet.

Gibson sez:

“Gibson Custom Shop’s 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to those priceless original models — it’s a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop’s expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans.”
