About This Listing

I picked up this beauty from a boutique shop that specializes in upgrading Gibsons Les Pauls to vintage specifications.  Here is their description.

 2005 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD PREMIUM PLUS AAAA QUILT TOP VOS w/ Historic Vintage'59 Conversion - Featuring Doyle Coils TRU-CLONES PAF Humbuckers & Complete '59 Rewire Kit '59 Conversion Kit - R9 Mod –    
VOS = Vintage Original Spec

SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT AT 7lbs. 14ozs.

Do you love and lust after a ’59 Burst, drool over that Custom Shop Les Paul R9… but simply find it all just out of your price range? Well then… do we have a guitar for you! AN ABSOLUTE TONE MONSTER - A Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Plus with an absolutely stunning AAAA Quilt Top, with our Historic '59 Conversion Kit - R9 Mod, Featuring Doyle Coils PAFs w/ our Complete ’59 Wiring Upgrade Kit. What guitar! All the MOJO and Vintage Vibe without the price tag… This one smokes, and just look at the top on this beauty!

SUPER CLEAN BARELY PLAYED PREMIUM MAPLE VINTAGE TOP 2005 LIGHT BURST - EXQUISITE PREMIUM PLUS FIGURED MAPLE TOP - MAJOR MODS & UPGRADES! AS NEW - GIBSON HARDSHELL CASE... 50's NECK - AWESOME LES PAUL SOUND!

The Historic Vintage '59 Conversion Kit: Looks, feels, and plays just like a Custom Shop 1959 R9 '59 Reissue - Maybe even better thanks to our hand wound Doyle Coils TRU-CLONES PAF Humbuckers and Complete ’59 Harness upgrade w/550k pots and PIO caps!

This Gorgeous Les Paul Traditional Premium Plus was fantastic straight out of the case... but with all of our '59 Historic modifications and upgrades, it becomes an instant Classic and a Tonal Dynamo! First we get rid of all the tacky Chrome... Every single piece of hardware and electronics has been changed out and upgraded... The clunky tone robbing Nashville bridge has been switched out for a tone and sustain enhancing Historically Correct ABR1 Bridge in nickel plate with Special Callaham Conversion Posts for even more sustain! A Brand new aged nickel Vintage lightweight Aluminum Stoptail replaces the clunky pot metal stock unit... Add Historic Pickup rings, Vintage amber tophats knobs, add some old-school finger stabbers, aged cream switch tip, and plain truss rod cover... Swap the stock .05 cents caps for our very special tone enhancing paper-in-oil Boutique .022 “Silver Bullet” caps that simply sound great, install our simply amazing high audio taper 550K pots, and get rid of all that cheap "telephone wire"... even a new switch and jack! Then drop the vintage aluminum stoptail & do a reverse top wrap on the strings, then antique and gently age all the nickel hardware... AND OF COURSE, DON’T FORGET ABOUT OUR DOYLE COILS TRU-CLONES PAF HUMBUCKERS!

NOW you have what looks like, feels, plays, and sounds like a gorgeous PREMIUM high-end Custom Shop '59 R9 Historic... with an amazing Light Burst carved AaAA Premium maple top... SIMPLY AMAZING!!! Really Great Vintage Vibe and A SOLID TONE MONSTER. If this was a Custom Shop R9 you would have to pay upwards of $6,500 or more!

What an amazingly beautiful guitar... Major Historic Vibe!
Just like an Historic '59 Reissue without the price...

This guitar is in SUPER CLEAN Condition... has no wear whatsoever that we can see, and has only been played a handful of times during its 12 years… just enough to do a killer set up... No cracks, no breaks, no dings, no repairs on this amazing Les Paul. The neck is perfectly straight...with a super comfy 50's profile. This guitar just had a complete overhaul, cleaning, fret dress, new strings and precision set up by our best guitar tech - this guitar is set up as good as it gets!
