GIBSON USA Custom Shop Les Paul R9 Chambered Reissue 'Cloud 9' "Sunburst + Rosew

GIBSON USA Custom Shop Les Paul R9 Chambered Reissue 'Cloud 9' "Sunburst + Rosew

Gibson's legendary 59 Les Paul with a gorgeous flame top and a tone enhancing chambered body! I've had tons of plain top 59 reissues but seldom see flame tops and the older older chambered reissues are especially hard to come by. The correct Gibson name for the '59 would be "Chambered R9" and for the '58 it would be "Chambered R8", or just Chambered Reissue. The people at Gibson will firmly state that they do not make a "Cloud 9". In some cases, they will refer you to one of the three dealers with your questions. The "Chambered-Reissue " name has been given to the series of guitars specifically contracted for construction by three dealers, Dave's Guitar Shop, Music Machine and Wildwood Guitars. These Les Pauls have found many fans among players. Checkout "Chambered-reissue.org" online for more info on these rare les pauls.

Condition Report: What a gorgeous R9 Gibson! It's had weight relief making her so comfortable to hold. Beautiful VOS design, unused frets and all round Mint condition. This guitar has been chilling under the bed for some time. Now I may be biased as I'm fond of a Les Paul... but this guitar has some serious sound. It's playability is impeccable and after a slight set up and string change... it sings like no other I have played. Its previous owner did tell me of it's beauty and he was right. A real gem, will be sad to let this one go.
