>Rare 96 Gibson Les Paul 59 Reissue (r9) Standard
What we have here is a 1996 Gibson '59 Les Paul Standard Re-issue from the Gibson Custom Shop. These are few and far between on ebay, for good reason, you have to be crazy to sell one of these!!! However, I have gone temporarily insane in my quest for the Holy Grail, it is time to let this one go.It is widely consideredthat '96 R9's have some of the best wood and Flame Topsever produced, this onewill not disappoint!!!Gibson calls it Washed Cherry, however I think it looks more like a Honey or Iced Tea burst. It's absolutely gorgeous. Thefingerboard is a deep, deep Rosewood, it almost looks like it's Ebony. Awesome maple top, in '96 they used AAAAA tops, unlike the newer re-issues thatgo fora more historically accurate AA top. The inlays look incredible, better than my newer R8 and R9's. The inlaysare not as yellow as the newer R9's. The '96features the '57 Classic pickup configuration, instead of the Burst Buckers. The pickups in this guitar sound special. This guitar does show minor play wear, with only a few polish, pick, marks or swirls and some slight oxidizing of the hardware etc... The back is clean and rash free. No scratches orworming at all. The neck is smooth and clean with no issues, a very low and buzz free setup. Tons of life left in the frets!!! This is an AWESOME Lester up for grabs.You won't find many of these, even fewer that are this clean. I try to be fair and accurate in my descriptions, these areexpensive guitars. My feedback rating is 100% POSITIVE, so bid with confidence!!! Ask questions. All sales are final. Guitar for sale to US customers only, no trades. Please have at least 10 positive feedback ratings prior to bidding. Please do not bid if you don't intend to purchase this guitar. Your bid is a contract.
