If you are a Les Paul fan looking for the perfect Gibson Reissue LP that includes Brazilian fingerboard, Honduran Mahogany, Eastern Flame Maple and assembled with hot hide glue then check out this guitar.

For sale is a 1999 40th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Reissue that went thru a full makeover by JamCity Guitars.

The makeover includes:
Stem out the neck, remove the fingerboard with a heat blanket, retop the guitar with Premium Grade Eastern Flame Maple with mineral streaks & flecking, remove truss rod with sheath and install correct 50's type truss rod, install beautiful dark black 50's looking Brazilian fingerboard with nitrate inlays, reshape the neck profile to 59 specs, Bartlett binding. Finish with correct aniline dyes, nitro lacquer, silkscreen “Les Paul” script, restamp S/N, CTS Premium 500K pots, NOS Russian PIO caps, Nowire ABR 1 bridge, featherweight tailpiece, retrospect bushings and studs, VooDoo 59 PAF style pickups, Jescar 6100 frets, mammoth tusk ivory nut, the weight is 8lbs. 11oz. HS case.
The guitar comes with the 40th Certificate and JamCity Guitars COA

Nice! Not to be a PITA, but do you have any pics of what it looked like before the makeover?

I did. Did you? The only pic of the front of the original guitar, you can barely see anything except the neck.
Really? I clicked on the link and saw the whole guitar. Maybe Photobucket is acting up.

This is the only wide shot I can see of the original guitar:

I am just curious because I have never seen a plaintop 40th R9. Like I said, not trying to be a PITA.

Thanks but no competition, I only do conversions and builds. Kim is a good friend and we have worked together on many projects. I was doing makeovers before Kim started HM but decided they were too labor intense and went another direction. I won't take on a makeover project and only do them for myself. This was my personal guitar. Check out my website to see what I do.

I already contacted Kim about my top only refinish, and because he is in such high demand he can't take on a smaller job. I totally understand that. Kim is a great guy and does superb work, I just don't need a complete makeover.
