USED GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP COLLECTOR'S CHOICE #1 MELVYN FRANKS 1959 LES PAUL STANDARD VOS WITH CASE AND COA
This is a faithfully recreation of one of the most famous guitars in history, Peter Green's 1959 Les Paul Standard. Gibson Custom Shop used this instrument to launch the highly successful (and collectable) Collector's Choice Series.
The Peter Green Les Paul (often nicknamed Greenie) has changed hands over the years, being famously used for decades by Gary Moore and then into the hands of famed collector Melvyn Franks at the time this model was launched. The original is currently owned by Metallica's Kirk Hammett.
This fabled guitar's famous features are all on tap here. The VOS Butterscotch finish is highlighted by a subtle yet stunning maple top. The guitars' most famous feature, the reversed neck pickup, gives this the signature 'out of phase' sound in the centre position.
This instrument is in Collector condition and includes original hardshell case and COA.
