  • Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Lemonburst Ser# R960688

    $5,435.29

    Figured tops on sunburst Les Pauls are like girls... Hear me out. What I'm trying to say is, everybody likes something a bit different, but when a really pretty one comes along, everyone gets in line. I was sent a pic of this guitar and my immediate reponse was "Yeah". When it arrived I played it and my immediate response was "Yeah".  It now lives here at GW but maybe not for long. Yeah.
