Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard Historic 1959 R9 Reissue VOS Iced Tea Sunburst 2017
Exceptional R9 2017, it truly is as good as it looks. it weighs 9.12lb
Gibson has merged the True Historic and Standard Historic lines. They are now just called Custom Shop Standards. They will still have a 56, 57, 58, 59, and 60 versions. They have all True Historic specs with the exception of the hand sanded finish. The finish is very thin and look as good as I have ever seen from Gibson. The top is very 3D with tons of movement and also has nice grain and flecking. The color is a great looking iced tea burst. It has a great vintage look and looks especially great with this particular top and the True Historic parts. The tone is pure magic. This one can do it all. It is particularly rich and full sounding while still retaining its clarity. The neck is a nice medium C. So far, these 2017s have great neck profiles.
