Very Rare Collectors Historic 57 Reissue 20th Anniversary
Weight: 8.5 Lbs
Limited to only 100 guitars worldwide & created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gibson Custom Shop reissue program. This highly collectible Les Paul Custom has a 1-piece solid mahogany body, 1-piece mahogany neck & a 1-piece ebony fingerboard. Everything about this gorgeous reissue screams supreme quality, from the CustomBucker pickups to the framed, hand-made, one-of-a-kind Certificate of Authenticity, to the engraved "20th Anniversary" medallion over the pickup switch access. All of the appointments & attention to details make this guitar one of the most historically accurate reissues of the iconic 1957 "Black beauty" Les Paul Custom to date, right down to the hide glue construction & long neck tenon. Original retail for this amazing guitar was over $9000, but one lucky person will have it for a fraction of that price. This guitar is a real gem & a definite must-have for any collector!
