Can’t hold this one hidden anymore....
Finally found the rare unicorn
1959 60th Anniversary in Golden Poppy Burst with Brazilian fingerboard and Light Factory Aging

Weighing in at 8.40lbs and has a monster top

Inquired with Gibson and this one has a Eastern Hard Rock Maple

Only 5 were made in Golden Poppy, among which only 2 were aged

Bought it from a great person/collector

But I have finally found my unicorn...
Enjoy.....

Very nice!!! The inlays look like 2017 or 18's?
yes only Braz board from 2018 were used on the 5 for 2019. No more Brazilian from Gibson...stock is officially finished as of Nov 26, 2019

Has a less red, but it really reminds me of The Claw! aka Carmelita.

A monster top. I love the bald spot on the bass side between the pickups. Most monster top bursts have a character bald spot like pearly gates or Beck's tiger stripe burst. Congrats!
