The Collectors Choice #1 Gary Moore Aged Edition '59 Les Paul captures all the historically accurate details that make this Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul the most exact reproduction of the ™Burst ever produced. Details such as the deep-set long neck tenon, correct body top binding in the cutaway, historically-accurate BurstBucker PAF-humbucking pickup reproductions, rounded ™59 neck profile, and 17-degree back-angled headstock all give this guitar the feel and tone of the real deal.
With its Collector' Choice Program, the Gibson Custom Shop works with passionate collectors to reproduce some of the finest examples from their collection. These limited-edition reproductions showcase rare and amazing instruments, some known and many unknown; giving the fans of these instruments the opportunity to get a Custom Shop limited number reproduction of these gems. This guitar was previously owned and made famous by Gary Moore before it belonged to its current owner/collector, Melvyn Franks.
As with every reproduction of an existing model, Gibson Custom Shop examined the original guitar in great detail to recreate it exactly. Aside from the splendor of the guitar itself, its magic is in the smallest details: the œout of phase middle position tone, the missing silver inserts on the top two œtophat control knobs, the reversed neck pickups (with adjustable pole pieces facing the bridge) and the accurate neck shape. An aged version of the guitar has even been hand-worn to look exactly as the original does.
Produced in strictly limited numbers, only 125 Gary Moore Aged Edition '59 Les Paul guitars will be offered, aged by acclaimed artisan Tom Murphy. All guitars come protected in a Custom Shop hardshell case, and include a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gary Moore, an owner' manual, and full warranty documentation and adjustment literature.
