Gibson Introduces The Latest Collector's Choice Les Paul

Gibson tells us that, capturing every sonic, visual, and tactile nuance of the world's most desirable guitar, Collector's Choice #17 1959 Les Paul "Louis" re-creates a stunningly well-preserved Les Paul that was tucked away in a private collection for the past 30 years.

A Gibson spokesperson had this to say, "Keith Nelson of SoCal rock band Buckcherry selected this 'burst from six original '59 Les Pauls after rigorous playing, and has played it on Buckcherry's 2013 release Confessions and every live date since. Thanks to Keith's gracious cooperation, Gibson Custom has painstakingly analyzed every detail of the guitar's look, sound, and modest playing wear to bring you a perfect recreation. From the faded Dirty Lemon Burst finish to the incomparable '59 neck profile and hallowed PAF-driven burst tone, Collector's Choice #17 is the nearest you'll come to making the most valuable electric guitar ever produced your very own."
