Description

This is a museum quality example of Gibson’s earliest 80’s attempts at making a true 1959 Reissue & when they started making better guitars across the board. Its Honey’burst finish is quite lovely over a very flamey maple top. Its see-thru cherry red finish is brilliant & she looks like she’s 2-3 years old. She originally came w/2 early factory HB-L & HB-R pickups, original pots dated to the 19th week of 1988 w/a nice pickgard, Kluson tuners, nickel tun-a-matic bridge & stop tailpiece. It’s currently equipped w/a killer set of “Throwback” PAF’s, new chrome hardware & a set of Grover tuners but all original parts are included. Keep it as is which is fabulous or make it stock once again. Its only 9 lbs. 2 oz; Just in from its original owner, David Franklin, whom acquired it on 11/23/88 from Allegro Music in Coral Gables, Florida for a hefty $1695. + taxes having its original bill of sale. David added all the parts & kept everything for its next caretaker. It is truly Near Mint & comes in its original Brown Tolex hard case.
