I am selling a Gibson Custom Shop 2013 20th Anniversary Murphyburst 1959 Les Paul Reissue in the UK.

I thought that this R9 was sold but due to a sudden change in circumstances the buyer has had to pull out...so this beauty is up for grabs again.

This absolutely gorgeous 2013 R9 is one of only 100 guitars made Worldwide to celebrate 20 years of the Gibson Custom Shop from 1993 to 2013. Edwin Wilson (Custom Shop Historic Program Manager) and Tom Murphy worked together for the first time in many years...they handpicked the 100 tops and chose the colours for the run...and Tom Murphy sprayed the Bursts as he did back in 1993 when the Historic Series first began.

This guitar has an outstanding nitro finished flamed maple top with a Cherryburst Burst just as an original 1959 Les Paul had when it was new. It has a wonderful set of Custombucker humbucker pickups as used on the Collectors Choice #6 Les Paul Reissue. It also has the more vintage accurate 2013 upgrades including a Hot Hide Glue neck joint, the use of Aniline Dyes on the back/sides of the guitar, a sheathless truss rod and single-line Kluson Deluxe 'Greenkey' tuners.

It weighs a very nice 8.75 lbs.

It comes with a 2013 Gibson Custom Shop hardcase, Gibson checklist, hangtags, a white guitar sock with the 1993 Custom Art Historic logo, a pair of white gloves, a commemorative 20th Anniversary engraved rear switch plate (a black rear switch plate is also included) and a very special COA print which is handsigned by both Edwin Wilson and Tom Murphy.

This guitar certainly has one of the best tops in the whole of the run and only about six of these guitars came to the UK Gibson dealers. This guitar also has a very similar top to the guitar used in the Gibson advert for the run.

The guitar is in 'as new' condition having only been played very occasionally on my lap in my smoke free home...it is totally original.

£5,999

Please contact me on (UK) 01275 464057 or 07866 627083...near Bristol Airport. :)
