2015 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Collector's Choice CC#29 Tamio Okuda with Historic Makeovers Deluxe package

Vintage cherry red finish, in great condition and nature relic, it's hard get any closer to a real 1959!
Couple upgrades and Historic Makeovers deluxe package comes with

  • Mid '60s patent number pickups (can find the "L shape" tool marks on them)
  • Brazilian Rosewood fretboard
  • Vintage Top Carve
  • Exclusive Nitro Refinish
  • Restamp with the correct "9 1165" Serial Number
  • Royalite Binding
  • Cellulose Nitrate Inlays
  • 6/6 Nylon Nut
  • Throbak pickup rings
  • Russian PIO capacitors
  • Area 59 custom 500K pots
  • Faber ABRH bridge
  • Vintage length 1" studs
  • Mojoaxe pickguard
I used to have a regular CC#29, and tone wise this one just somehow makes to the next level!
Not sure what's the secret sauce but this pretty simply sounds warmer and bigger.

The neck shape is similar to the original CC#29, about .89"-.96" range
Weight 8.46lbs, comes with OHSC, papers and two COAs

Asking $6500 PP friend and shipped CONUS
