These 60th anniversary R9s are quite collectible and great guitars … here’s a chance to pick up a gently used one and save yourself some bucks.
Here’s a new Gibson Custom Shop 60th Anniversary R9 1959 Les Paul in a sunrise teaburst VOS finish and a great figured top. 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 and a 60th anniversary badge on the back. Weighs in at a comfortable 8 pounds 9 ounces of historic Gibson tone. Gibson sez:
“Gibson Custom Shop’s 60th Anniversary 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. It’s the definition of cool, and it’s the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago.”
