Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul. Very good all original condition. Includes original case and case candy. May trade for other high end gear. Description from Gibsons website-
Lee Roy Parnell's immense talent and soulful approach has made him an icon in the music world, but his discriminating taste and emphasis on tone has made him a legend in the guitar community. His '57 Goldtop signature model from Gibson Custom Shop became an instant classic for this reason, and it continues to be sought-after by collectors and guitarists worldwide. Lee Roy and the talented luthiers at Gibson Custom Shop took notice, and so began the process of creating a new version based on a flametop '59 Burst instead of a '57 Goldtop. The construction elements remain the same, from the contoured cutaway edge to the revised pickup routes, which Lee Roy prefers in order to capture more character from the wood. Each features a hand-picked figured maple top accented by an "Abilene Sunset Fade" burst, inspired by Lee Roy's hometown in Texas. Under the hood, each guitar features a '57 Classic humbucker in the neck, a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge, and the all-new Vintage Tone Circuit which uses paper-in-oil capacitors and vintage taper potentiometers. Every element has been given Lee Roy's seal of approval!
