Figured maple tops selected just for ‘Pearly Gates:’ Each one was carefully selected especially for the Gibbons’ ‘Pearly Gates’ model, and each is as beautiful as the top that adorns the original.
Carefully matched Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish: Gibson Custom has matched the faded Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish almost perfectly. The naturally darkened edges give way to the beautiful patterns of the maple grain. Even the original’s distinct red mahogany back is intact. Granted, no two guitars could ever have exactly the same top and finish.
