A 59 Burst what else ?

Hello guys

After more than 20 years of playing guitars and dreaming about burst I bought this 1959 Gibson Les Paul in the last weeks.

Long may you enjoy!

A beauty and all that

However, how does it sound and play?

Re: A 59 Burst what else ?

Thanks so much guys !!
I Really appreciate.
I will post more pictures in the coming days.
I got the guitar in LA from Drew Berlin who has been a real gentlemen.
Previous owner bought the guitar in 1983 with Normam Harris. Guitar is all original and 100% clean, I was really looking for such top and color.
Here is one more picture.
