*** ON HOLD ***

Here’s a gorgeous Gibson Custom Shop R9 1959 Les Paul with made-to-measure hand picked highly figured top and finished in Mojave Burst VOS. No pickguard installed. 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. Get some extra savings because the switch tip broke loose during shipping and put 2 tiny dents in the top next to the switch (not through the finish). These can likely be fixed with some care and a drop or two of lacquer. There is also one small scratch on the back by the pickup selector plate that occurred when a new switch was installed.  Photo in which the lighting actually over-emphasizes the dents (the selector surround “poker chip” was also replaced due to a small dent in that):

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.”
