An interesting story: An explosion so pristine it could have come out of a time capsule An encounter with a genuine '59 Les Paul is impressive on any occasion,
but when it comes to a genuine single-owner Burst like this, the experience is almost
too intense to put into words. Loved and lovingly played by its original owner for nearly five decades, this stunning
Les Paul appeared in 2008 when the owner contacted Gibson. The factory consulted
the well-known Burst expert, Mr. Vic DaPra, and the end result was that the anonymous
collector from Texas, known for his generous trust in entrusting his prized collection
to the best active professional guitarrist, loaned the instrument for its public exhibition
and subsequent authorized reproduction. All of this allowed Gibson's Custom Hop to develop and offer the
Collector's Choice ™ # 30 1959 Les Paul, also known as the "Gibson Appraisal Burst / Gabby",
a perfect detailed recreation of one of the best preserved 'Bursts' ever known. .
From its rich cherry red finish that remains remarkably strong and non-fading,
to its superbly three-dimensional figured maple top with minimal wear, to its precise
neck shape, and Custom Buckers that accurately recreate your original PAFs. This is as close to a pristine '59 vintage Les Paul as you can get. Gabby was produced in a limited edition of 300 guitars worldwide,
due to the scarcity of materials that allow us to build these uniquely rated jewels today
