MONSTER TOP WITH LOTS OF CHARACTER! Best I've seen. I was saving this one for myself but oh well! One of two available. These are impressive. The aging is better than ever, color looks great, super dark board, lightweight, nice top, very resonant and bold. It's the Mick Ralphs Gibson 1958 Les Paul Aged Reissue guitar. The neck feels more like an R9 so not huge. The guitar is MINT, Unplayed with everything including original aged case, COA, paperwork, and original box!
