Bought new in 2004 by previous, single owner and never played. This 17 year old time capsule could be yours and you would be the first to enjoy it...
2004 Gibson Les Paul Historic R9 in MINT condition anyone?
This guitar is stunning. Bought new by the previous owner who kept it almost exclusively in its case from new and never ever played it..!, this is the cleanest, time capsule condition R9s we’ve ever seen. The exquisite top has a wonderful three dimensional, multifaceted quality and married to an impressive single piece mahogany body, makes quite the package.
It is also a dark, or bourbon burst and doesn’t have the light ageing the VOS models have.
As with the body, the single piece neck shows no signs of use. The grain is wonderfully showcased here. The Madagascan rosewood fretboard is in great shape as are the frets. The headstock has not a single mark.
The hardware is bright, clean with no signs of tarnishing.
Electrically everything is correct and untouched, as you would expect of course.
The guitar comes with its Gibson Custom Shop hard-shell case.
Its a joy to play with a sublime ‘59 profile neck and the Burstbucker pickups delivering a those wonderful PAF-like tones.
Looks and tone to die for, what more could you want? Find another this clean…
