    Here we have a stunning example of a Gibson Collector's Choice #38 Les Paul. It's in incredible condition, and really looks and feels the part of an early 1960 Burst.

    It sounds great, the Custombucker pickups sound much like those early PAFs, with an openness and clarity to them that escapes many humbuckers. All in this just a great Les Paul, and a must for anyone who's keen to experience that "00" Burst magic...

    It comes with all its original case, paperwork, and case candy.

    Here's what Gibson has to say about the Collector's Choice series, and CC #38:

    The Collector's Choice ™ Series makes it possible to own a recreation of a specific guitar. Once again working with a specific instrument and its owner allowed Gibson Custom full access so that it could be analyzed, digitally scanned and measured from every conceivable perspective. Now Gibson Custom can faithfully recreate the individual personality of a specific serial number, thereby bringing its magic within reach of a limited number of owners. 

    The details of finish, material, wear and tone in the Collector's Choice™ range are as near to a perfect re-creation of each guitar's current condition as is humanly possible.

    The earliest 1960 Les Pauls were essentially 1959 'Bursts, featuring the same beefy neck profile, thin sunburst finish and, in the case of the rarest of them like the "Chicken Shack 'Burst", an amazing flame maple top. 

    Collector's Choice #38 is a striking replica of original serial #0 0205, a well known vintage Burst among those early

    1960 Pauls built to 1959 specs. Drew Berlin, one of its proud owners, refers to these as "double O's" and has worked extensively with Gibson Custom to help recreate one of the most visually and sonically amazing guitars in the Collector's Choice range.

    The " Chicken Shack 'Burst" gains its namesake from the band founded by Stan Webb in 1965. Stan played the guitar live through the 1980's, before it was sold to Vic DaPra in the early 9Os and shipped to America. Its eye-popping flame maple top and powerful bluesy tone caught the attention of players, collectors and publishers alike. It's been featured in The Beauty of the Burst, Sunburst Alley and, most recently, Burst Believers Ill. It's now offered in a very limited run that will be determined by the availability of qualifying (and very intense) flamed maple required to create it.
