This pre-owned instrument is a replica of one of the “holy grails” of 1959 Les Pauls; Billy Gibbons’ Pearly Gates. These Gibson Custom Shop guitars are considered to be some of the best reissues they have ever released. The Pearly Gates Les Paul has the usual ’59 specs, it features an unbelievable flame maple top on a solid mahogany body, mahogany neck, ’59 Les Paul neck shape, rosewood board with trapezoid inlays, 24-3/4″ scale length, two Seymour Duncan “Pearly Gates” humbuckers, and a carefully matched burst to the original guitar, aptly named “Billy Gibbons Burst.”
Looking at the top on this guitar, you would think you’re wearing 3D glasses, there is that much movement in the flame, it really pops out at you while you are playing. It is in exceptional condition with little to no play time on it, original case and certificate are included.
