Here we have for sale, this truly stunning Gibson Custom Shop Collector’s Choice #43. This is a replica of the original 1958 Les Paul Standard owned by British Rock legend Mick Ralphs. The Custom Shop replicated the guitar exactly, from every nick and ding to the pickups as well as neck measurements. The guitar has a Historic hide-glue construction and used vintage-spec materials. This baby was previously owned by an avid guitar collector who was downsizing his collection and it is in perfect, pristine, original condition and has not been gigged.
Includes CC Reliced Brown Tolex Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Hang Tags and Paperwork etc.
You will likely not find a better example of this very collectable, pre-owned #43 anywhere!
