Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Reissue 1959 R9 VOS 2009 Washed Cherry

Skonto Price


This Les Paul comes with a beautiful washed cherry top and… *drumming*… a flamed mahogany neck! To be honest, although I have held hundreds of R9 guitars in my life, I have never seen one until now. I would rank it to be somewhere between AA and AAA. It weighs 4150g, but is very well balanced! The neck is thick. Thicker on any other 59s in my opinion. It also sounds really amazing, very warm, much warmer than my recent R9s, which makes it the perfect blues machine. So if you’d like to the ultimative flame, this is it.


This one was played! Not brutally played, but regularly played over the 13 years. There are many dings and dongs, but nothing too serious. The lacquer is chipped a bit on the binding where the arm rests. Some scratches on the back of the neck, but are not noticable when playing. But this is all normal wear over these couple of years. I’d give it a solid 7.2/10.
