Overview

Introducing Collector's Choice #22 Tommy Colletti's 1959 Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty", a very precise replica of the original owned by Tommy (owner of The Music Zoo in New York and longtime Gibson Custom Shop Dealer), featuring True Historic Finish processes and build techniques. Each one of this very limited run of guitars (up to 300 worldwide) has a True Historic Vintage Lamp Black finish and sports double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck profiles taken directly from the original via digital scanning.

Now that Gibson's late-'50s Les Pauls are the most desirable guitars on earth, it's all too easy to forget that Gibson had an entire catalogue of different models at the time, many of which were much more commercially successful than the eventual undisputed "holy grail" of electric solid body guitars. 

Gibson Custom's latest addition to its Collector's Choice series is a bold reminder that there were absolute gems being handcrafted by Gibson in '59, and that they didn't all have a sunburst finish and figured maple top. This is an authentic vintage ownership experience delivered with amazing attention to detail in its craftsmanship, tone and materials.
