2017 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul ’59 Historic Reissue R9 (SOLD)


We have another Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop 1959 (R9) Reissue from the Custom Shop Historic Collection. As it’s certificate says: “it’s completely hand built by some of the finest luthiers on the planet”

First of all check my demo video with this beauty on Youtube:

An absolute beautiful, very looked after, clean guitar with a serious pickup upgrade: this has Monty’s PAF pickups installed. These are completely hand-wound, boutique pickups from a well known pickup builder in London. This pair costs £245+installation…it has aged, nickel pickup covers but the previous owner didn’t install those. I like it like this and with the pickup covers on too. You can put them back if you prefer. It’s a 2 mins job. Monty’s PAFs are very very sought after pickups a lot of famous players ordered a pair of these….

This is a NEAR MINT GUITAR (with only a small unserious mark on it, check it on the pictures)!

This is the latest 59 (R9) reissue in Iced Tea Burst. 

We all know that these post 2013 made Custom Shop Les Pauls are just amazing guitars and the 2016/2017/2018 models have the TRUE HISTORIC plastics so these are even better than the earlier models!

Amazing quality, fantastic specs, great upgrades: new Custom Bucker pickups, period correct finishes, aniline dye, long neck tenon…all what we want. Plus this has the ICED TEA BURST finish which is one of the most sought after finishes!

It comes with its original Gibson Custom Shop case and ALL the original paperwork, hang tags…It has a lovely smooth one-piece rosewood fret-board, and has been professionally set up for probably the best action I’ve ever experience on an LP. You won’t believe how low the action is without buzzing, it’s so easy to play…

This guitar offers SUBSTANTIAL SAVING! Yours for just £3100. (SOLD)
