Beautiful top with a great fade finish! A beautiful guitar that plays and sounds excellent. The guitar is near mint (one touched up ding on headstock corner) with original lacquered hardshell Lifton-style case, COA, paperwork etc..!
The Gibson Custom Shop Historic Series has been getting better and better each year, getting so close to the great examples of the late 50’s and early 60’s.Hide-glue construction, premium tone woods, the all-new 2018 Historic Collection has added more great features. New neck profiles (including an all-new ’59 profile scanned from an original vintage '59) to period correct fretwire and all new “Fade” finishes. Aniline-dyed 1-piece mahogany backs, historically-accurate deluxe Kluson tuners, and incredible maple tops that make each one unique. The Custom Buckers sound great as usual! The case is the lacquered Lifton-style that is more accurate than years past. Incredible guitar!
