Ca. 1983 Gibson Les Paul Standard '59 Reissue, cherry sunburst. Made in USA, serial number 90088. This guitar is just came out of a huge collection, it's in great condition and it comes the original brown Gibson hardshell case (handle is broken and is in the case) and all case candy, indicating this as a model LP59 sold in 1985. It was most likely made in 1983 as the pot codes date to early 1983. This is almost certainly a special run made for the Japanese market only (it was bought from the original owner in Japan) along side Burst Reissue order from Guitar Trader, Leo's and Jimmy Wallace guitars. The guitar does have the most beautiful and realistic top we've seen on any of the early Reissues. It has the same small serial number font that was used for the Guitar Trader Les Pauls. This guitar has actually seen a little bit of playtime, the original owner also swapped put in a set of early Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups and vintage MIJ paper-in-oil tone caps. The guitar sounds as good as it looks and the neck profile is chunky and round. The pickup rings were changed at least twice, leaving 3 extra hole underneath the bridge position pickup ring. A small shipping damage around the bottom strap button was professionally repaired and touched up. Weighs 4.35kg.
