.............................................................................

This run has been nothing short of amazing; from looks, to feel, to tone. Gibson truly delivered with these. This one may be the best of the bunch. This one has the most incredible top I have seen in this run, a great overall vintage look. The aging is very convincing. It really looks and feels like a nearly 60 year old guitar. The tone is absolutely amazing. I've never heard a LP be able to growl and clean up this well, all while keeping great note clarity. This is a amazing guitar that can really do it all. The neck on this one is a perfect vintage medium C profile, with almost no shoulder. This one is in as new condition.

Backstory

Gibson Custom is proud to announce the limited release of the Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul #9 1910, a precise replica of the Pearl Jam guitarist’s original that he tours and records with today. When Pearl Jam exploded out of Seattle in the early 1990’s, their aggressive, guitar fueled tone not only helped revive rock and roll, it did something that only truly great bands do; it created a sub genre of music. Dubbed “grunge”, Pearl Jam’s unique take on rock launched a legacy that exists today with as much of a following today as it did twenty years ago. Mike McCready’s sound and style lives at the heart of Pearl Jam’s instantly recognizable tone. His original 1959 Les Paul is a critical component to that sound. If it isn’t rare enough that an original 1959 Les Paul is still in active use, add to it that it’s the second go-round for serial #9 1910 in the orbit of genre changing music. Mike’s original was also owned by Jim Anderson, the last guitarist in Van Morrison’s band Them who purchased it from a Pawn Shop while on tour in Seattle sometime between 1967-69. This is an incredible guitar in its tone, playability, and in its history. In Mike’s words: “I picked it up, played for a few seconds, and said ‘Yeah, this is the one’. It just felt right in my hands. I’ve used it on four or five albums since and take it on every tour.” A limited number of 50 aged and signed guitars will be available. Here are the details: True Historic aged Nitrocellulose McCready ‘Burst finish, Serial number 2, Double carved figured Maple top, Mahogany body, Bound 12” radius Indian Rosewood fingerboard with the Cellulose Trapezoid inlays on a McCready profile shaped Mahogany neck, Custom Bucker bridge and neck pickups with the True Historic covers, ABR-1 bridge and a lightweight Aluminum stop tailpiece, Grover tuners,  With the aged hardshell case.
