Gibson Les Paul CS 1959 R9 VOS Historic Custom Shop 2016 – Skinnerburst for the “poor”

Skonto Price


This Les Paul reminds me a lot of guitars like the Joe Bonamassa R9 or Mark Knopfler’s R8, and not just in looks. They sound as amazing as these sought after guitars. It comes with a nice round and thick 59 neck, bluesy and warm burstbuckers and a historic burst and flame.


It had a very small lacquer chip on the underside of the neck that has been repaired. It has some binding bleed like all R9s from that time. Otherwise, it is in a very good condition. 8,5/10, without the chip maybe 9,5/10.
