This 2011 Gibson Custom Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is the latest and the greatest Gibson has to offer. "Handpicked" FOR YAMANO as indicated in the model name and designation Y-LPR9VOSLBNH1, this Limited Edition Lemonburst is extremely RARE and highly sought after - The Yamano's are considered to be the very best guitars, built to the highest standard. They are built from the finest woods and handpicked for their outstanding appearance and performance. Until 2007 when Gibson severed ties with Yamano, who was Gibson's Japanese distributor, the very best guitars were sent to Japan. Today, guitars are still handpicked for their outstanding appearance and performance, built from the finest woods, judged by the highest standard and they are still marked with a Y designation in the SKU. However, they are now available to the domestic market in extremely limited numbers. This is one of those guitars. This guitar has a KILLER CURLY W-I-D-E TIGER STRIPE FLAME MAPLE TOP. It's this kind of Flame that captured the MOJO of the legendary 1959 Les Paul Standard! This kind of figured Maple is very hard in texture and reflective. Found in less than 1 in 1,000 trees, this kind of wood, captures stress between the flames of grain and produces a loud, powerful projective sound. This guitar is extremely resonant and extremely light, weighing in at 9 lbs 1 oz. The neck measures .949 at the 1st fret and 1.033 at the 12th. She's perfectly balanced, light on your back and powerful with tons of that mid range GROWL! This guitar will out perform other Historics in a way you just wouldn't believe until you plug her in. The ultra thin nitro finish has a lot to do with the tone of this beast, too. It allows the wood to breath. Together with all the right elements and the VOS treatment this guitar has the look, feel, and sound of a $300,000 original.
This guitar is 100% MINT, AS NEW, UNPLAYED and comes complete with the Gibson Custom case, certificate of authenticity and pure MOJO!
