Comments about Gibson Custom 1959 Reissue Les Paul Chambered Figured Back Electric Guitar:
I have owned about 200 to 300 guitars over my 40 years of playing and this Les Paul is quite expensive, no doubt, but I figured what the hell, I'm not going to live forever. If I found this guitar some 40 years ago I could have saved myself a lot of time and money. This is the only guitar I will be playing for the balance of my lifetime and will be selling off "ALL" my other electrics, no jive. And believe me when I tell you, beyond argument, this is an example of what American Luthiers can build when they put their minds to it. If I had my way, I'd give Gibson a forest of any kind of wood they wanted just for them building this one guitar. I don't work for "Private Reserve" or "Gibson", what I have written is the absolute unvarnished truth. The tonality along with the hand craftsmanship is like nothing I've ever seen, this guitar has no equal. You can bring on any Fender (new or vintage) or any other make for that matter, they're not even in the same class with this instrument. Truly light years ahead of anything else, the hand engraving on the metal work is amazing, when I opened the case I'd never seen anything of this nature before, never. Musical instruments are funny things as are the men and women who build them, whoever built this wanted to turn out a Masterpiece, and he did!
