Gibson Custom revels in the challenges of the guitars brought to life in its Collectors Choice Series, precise recreations of prized existing Les Pauls. Collectors Choice #18 brings to life a rare 1960 Les Paul Standard special ordered in a Dark Burst finish, a guitar that spent its time with one hard-working musician until its eventual sale to its second owner in 2012.
Acquired in Holland in 1961, œDutchbursts world was one of mirror balls, three-piece suits, œBesame Mucho, œBlue Moon, and œAutumn Leaves in the hands of the Dutch guitarist who used it to ply his trade in a cruise-ship jazz trio. As such, this is not only a very distinctive and characteristic late-1960 Les Paul, but one in impressive condition for a lifelong œworking axe.
With the close cooperation of the guitars current owner, Robbert van der Ende, Gibson Custom has measured, scanned and traced every spec, line, and curve of the original 60 Les Paul to bring you Collectors Choice #18 1960 Les Paul œDutchburst.
From its tightly figured maple tops flame and precise dish carve, to its lusciously faded Dark Burst finish, to its characteristically slim late-60s neck carve, to the two beautifully balanced PAF humbuckers, this recreation takes you straight to the heart of a rare and intriguing vintage Les Paul.
Meticulously hand-aged to represent the guitars well-played but lovingly cared-for condition today, Collectors Choice #18 1960 Les Paul œDutchburst will be available in a Limited Edition of 300 guitars, with the availability of qualifying materials ultimately determining the size of the run.
