Gibson Custom Shop’59 Les Paul Standard R9 1959 Historic Reissue 2012 Lemon Burst VOS – Excellent Condition 9.75/10. For best price visit our website. This particular R9 has been an under the bed “case queen” and seldom been played over the last 10 years as far as we can see. It has just the odd sign its been used and thats it, no dings, scratches, dents or damage. Other than the fact the guitar is “used” the guitars condition is fantastic. If we’re being very critical – the case has a few small marks. In 2012 Gibson had a good year with the exact duplication of the neck profile and top carve from an original’59 Burst. The finish is very thin and looks as good as we have ever seen from Gibson. All 2012 guitars feature hot hide glue construction, a historically accurate’59 hand finished top and neck neck carve and are fitted with historic parts, with period correct hardware, electronics and custom wound PAF pickups. This one has an unbelievable top and very in-keeping with the period of the more flamed tops like the Kossoff burst/Jimmy Page original bursts. Its a nice wide, ribbon flame with some absolutely gorgeous marbling to it. Looks much more like the original guitars rather than the massively wide crazy flame tops you sometimes see on these, very traditional and in-keeping whilst exceptionally beautiful. It is very 3D with tons of movement also making it very difficult to photograph! All woods are hand selected and graded with tight grain and marbling as you’d expect on the very best in the Gibson line. The previous owner wanted an R9 that looked as accurate as possible to an original would look without the wear. There’s next to none of the “binding bleed” usually seen on these either which means Gibson gave the guitar enough time to dry between lacquer coats. Also an early 2012 5 digit serial for an even more authentic look. It has a great vintage look and looks highly accurate with the VOS finish, gorgeous maple top and Historic parts. The tone is pure magic. This one can do it all at 8.5lb. It is particularly rich and full sounding while still retaining its clarity and is in fantastic condition. The Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS Series is a painstaking re-creation of the original 1959 Les Paul. The only major change to the Standard in 1959 was the addition of wider, fatter jumbo frets which facilitated more dramatic bends. The real force of this change was not felt until the late 1960s when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the’59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the 1959 Les Paul Standard as the quintessential guitar in the minds of guitarists and collectors everywhere. Using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and modern technology, the luthiers of the Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define cool, vintage instrument-stunning looks, flawless playability, and unsurpassed tone. The Vintage Original Spec series has a proprietary finishing process that yields the gently aged patina of a vintage classic. Also, a revolutionary handcrafting process enhances the comfort and playability of these guitars. Solid mahogany back, historically accurate long neck tenon for superior strength and sustain, period correct neck profiles, hardware and electronics, and 100% nitrocellulose lacquer are among some of the features offered in the Gibson Custom VOS series. Exact duplication of the 1959 carved top. Angle of neck pitch re-set to 1959 specs. Exact same filler and stain as used in 1959. Thinner lacquer replicates the 1959 Les Paul’s finish and color.
