Gibson Les Paul Gibson Collector's Choice #8 The Beast 1959

This 2013 Collector’s Choice #8 1959 Les Paul “The Beast” embodies everything that made the 1959 Les Paul legendary in the first place, in the exacting image of a true workhorse ’Burst that has toured the stages and studios of the world in the hands of legendary British rocker Bernie Marsden, a founding member of Whitesnake and guitarist with several other bands, projects, and notable solo artists. His prized 1959 Les Paul, serial number 9–1914, has been there through it all. This hallowed ’Burst truly comes to life in this Limited Edition, all representing every detail of this road-tested veteran, from its faded “Dirty Lemon” finish, to its patina and playing wear—and most of all, its feel and tone. The exceptional accuracy used to craft Collector’s Choice™ #8 1959 Les Paul “The Beast” includes attaining a similar lightweight, one-piece mahogany body and similarly figured carved maple top, recreating the precise beefy ’50s neck to match the original’s distinctive and individual profile, and developing a custom-wound set of pickups that includes a Burstbucker #2 in the neck and a Burstbucker #3 in the bridge to recreate The Beast’s unique chimey-to-throaty tone range. To take it all further, Gibson Custom accurately matches every nuance of the finish aging and playing wear found on the original, with the result that the final guitars have been thoroughly approved by Bernie himself for adherence to the original’s look, feel, and tone. 

Other features include a single-layer rosewood fingerboard, hot hide glue neck joint, accurate fingerboard and body binding color, historically accurate truss rod assembly, genuine aniline dye for the guitar’s back, neck, and sides, nylon 6/6 nut, holly headstock veneer with pearl Gibson logo, reissue Kluson Deluxe tuners, ABR-1 bridge with lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, Bumble Bee tone caps, and more. Includes original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
