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. Experience the precise look, feel and tone of one of the rarest guitars in history. Collector's Choice #17 1959 Les Paul Serial Number 9-1062, aka "Louis" is the go-to companion of Kieth Nelson, founding member of Southern California rock band Buckcherry, making it a familiar voice to a loyal fan base that spans the globe. After thirty years cautiously tucked away in a private collection, "Louis" was put back on the front lines as an everyday workhorse for both studio and stage when Nelson fell in love with its unique, classic Les Paul tone. Through a longtime friend and vintage guitar broker, Nelson had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put six original 1959 Les Pauls through their paces, pouring over each one's weight, feel, and, most importantly, its sound. In the end, he found his Les Paul tone in "Louis" and it's been a non-stop partnership ever since. From Buckcherry's 2013 releaseConfessions to every live show since, Nelson and "Louis" can be seen and heard almost nightly. One of the very few original 1959 Les Pauls in existence and a fine example of an instrument that's been well-preserved throughout a lifetime of use (and counting), Gibson Custom has reproduced "Louis" in precise detail, from the original guitar's softly faded burst and lightly aged finish to its individual tone and neck profile. As is the case with the all Collector's Choice guitars, great lengths have been gone to in order to recapture the rare individuality of a very exceptional piece of history, and in this case, a well-travelled and often heard guitar. From digital scanning to audio testing to the unique skills of Gibson's Custom craftspeople, no detail is left unattended, resulting in a masterful recreation of a specific 1959 Les Paul, offering a few collector's and players the chance to experience the look, feel and sound at a very rare piece. precise digital re-creation of the unique 1959 Les Paul Standard owned by Keith Nelson one-piece mahogany back with hand-selected maple top for incredible tone and sustain vintage-correct aniline dye back and sides Rosewood fingerboard sporta the original fretboard radius for fluid playability Burstbucker 3 neck pickup and Classic 57 bridge pickup International sales with CITES welcome.
