Stunning Gibson '58 Flametop in Sunburst with Deluxe Historic Makeovers package! 1959 Neck Profile. The Brazilian Rosewood is dark and looks old. It started its life as a special run 2011 58’ reissue with a hand-picked top and prototype custom buckers. Not only does it look incredible, it plays easy and sounds great!
HM took it, stripped the old finish, re-carved the top and neck, reset the neck with hot hide glue, added correct binding and a Brazilian Rosewood board, refinished it with correct colors and nitrocellulose lacquer, and lightly aged it. Just the Deluxe package is $4500+ the cost of the guitar! Great value here on a great guitar!
The top is very strong from both angles, with crazy flame and tons of flecking. The color is an exact match to a very slightly faded 1960 Les Paul. HM’s finish work is the best out there. It is very thin, hard and glass smooth. The neck is carved to an exact match of a 59 burst. It is a very comfortable medium C profile with perfect playability.
