Its interesting story: An explosion so pristine it could have come out of a time capsule 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 with the well-known Burst expert, Mr. Vic DaPra, and the end result was that the anonymous collector from Texas, known for his generous confidence in entrusting his prized collection to a network of active professional musicians, 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 about as close as a pristine '59 vintage Les Paul can get. Gabby was produced in a limited edition of 300 guitars for the entire world, due to the scarcity of materials that allow us to build these uniquely rated jewels today.
