1959 Gibson Les Paul 1999 R9 40th Anniversary (Custom Shop)
“START OR COMPLETE YOUR ANNIVERSARY SET”
1999 marked the 40th year since the creation of the 1959 Gibson Les Paul. Sure the 58 and 60 look the same but the 59 is the one that has become the grail for collectors.
This example from 1999 was made by Gibson’s Custom and Historic division to celebrate the model’s 40th birthday, it is a faithful recreation of the guitar that has become one of the most celebrated instruments ever made. The condition is excellent, with a blemish on the headstock the only notable flaw.
This is a fantastic example
The guitar comes as factory delivered with a regular Gibson case and a second brown Lifton reissue case.
