❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic Vintage Sunburst, 2009

The Gibson Les Paul 1959 Historic aims to be an accurate re-creation of the classic and influential 1959 Les Paul Standard. The Les Paul model was introduced in 1952, but was not particularly successful. In 1958, the line was updated to include Gibson’s new humbucking pickups, and sunburst finishes instead of Black (the Custom) or the Gold Top. The shift to sunburst, a translucent finish, meant that the Maple top had to be a higher grade. The rest of the guitar was the same – Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, with Mahogany for the neck and Rosewood for the fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue Custom Shop Sunburst, 2001

This Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue is in all original, overall good condition. Finish and fret wear are light, and a headstock crack has been nicely repaired – only regluing was necessary, and it is quite stable. The Maple top has an interesting figure, combining Flame and Quilt effects. This kind of figuring is really set off by a sunburst finish, and the washed-out cherry sunburst here complements it very well.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul R9 'Real Feel' 16 of 25, Burst 2003

This Gibson Les Paul R9 ‘Real Feel’ very rare instrument is in very good condition, with light wear. As these replicate the original, relatively thin nitrocellulose lacquer finishes, there is an amount of natural, expected finish sinking into the pores of the Mahogany back and neck, and light belt buckle or jean-rivet marking in an expected area on the back.
