GIBSON USA Custom Shop Les Paul CS9 50's Style VOS R9 "Iced Tea burst + Rosewood

£3,899.99Price

The CS9 VOS is a "re-creation of the fabled 1959 Les Paul features a non-weight-relieved mahogany body, classic hardware, a gently faded burst finish, a hide-glued neck and fretboard, a hand-carved maple top, a vintage truss rod and tuner designs, and more" - according to Gibson. The Custom buckers known from the models of the Collector's Choice series come closer to the legendary PAF Humbucker than ever before and promise an airy sound with transparent warmth with different wound coils and authentic wire.  

Basically, this is a fantastic Custom Shop built Gibson Les Paul, as close as possible to the 1959 original. Comes in a very fetching brown Gibson hard case with all the Custom Shop certificates etc.

Mint condition - home use only. Consequently no dings or dint's.
