It is reported that there were only 300 Gibson 1959 Reissue Les Pauls produced in 2002. This year had a few unique features. A non wire ABR bridge, N.O.S. CTS pots, and custom PF-27 tone caps. This example plays great with low easy action and the tone is everything you could hope for in a hi end Custom Shop Les Paul. Truly a wonderful playing / sounding guitar. Excellent condition showing some minor play wear. [ a few tiny dings and clear coat scratches ] Overall a fantastic looking instrument and a rare Les Paul. The top on this particular example is really great. Includes brown Lifton style Gibson hard shell case. [ no COA ]
