1999 Gibson Custom Shop '59 Les Paul Official KILLER TOP!
Beautiful, Rare and highly desirable Gibson KILLER TOP (KT) 40th Anniversary '59 Reissue Les Paul with Original Black AND Brown Lifton-style cases, COA, all paperwork including receipts, Gibson advertising, etc. Every LP seller claims their guitar has a "killer top," but this one has the actual Gibson Killer Top designation! The finish looks great and has a nice natural fade to it! A very low number of these were made.
This was the top model back in 1999. AAAAA-grade flame and it shows! The guitar is in very nice condition overall. There are two spots on the top where the finish got some indentations. One ding on the back as shown. The guitar is all original except the control assembly is currently RS, but the originals are included.
Fewer than 40 of these were made back in 1999. I've read that 18 were made like this with the Killer Top designation but it's inconclusive. The original owner bought the guitar for $7k back in 1999 which was a deal as they listed for $12,620. NOT MANY IN THE WORLD! Here's your chance to pick one up!
