Silver Supporting Member
For sale is an impossibly rare 2001 Gibson Historic 1959 or R9 Les Paul aged by Tom Murphy and made for Yamano in Japan. This guitar is super light at just over 8 pounds, has little if any fret wear, and has a super dark rosewood board. It has been upgraded with the best aftermarket PAF's available (Tom Holmes H450 and H455 four conductor zebra) which sound fantastic and coil tap. The guitar has no issues, has been collector owned and played very sparingly, and comes with the original pickups, original hardshell case, hang tag, other paperwork (in japanese), and the COA or certificate of authenticity. Just a super rare and beautiful, collectable guitar with no issues. Would consider partial trades plus cash. Priced at SOLD delivered and insured with paypal payment with both sets of pickups, or SOLD delivered and insured without the Tom Holmes pickups. Open to trades plus cash, but my price above is a straight sale price.
