The Gibson Custom R9 Les Paul is the quintessential collectors guitar. With it's authentic 1959 specifications, tone, and playability, this guitar is an excellent addition to any players arsenal. With only 500 R9 les pauls shipped in 2001, this guitar is also extremely rare. While the 1959 Les Paul Standard retained the classic ingredients of the breed—its solid mahogany body and carved maple top, both represented here in the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue.
The R9 guitars made in 2001 were also aged by Tom Murphy, making this an even more lucrative purchase.
