The Collector's Choice series by Gibson Custom offers the most avid fans of Gibson's legacy the chance of owning a piece of history, through the precise and exacting replication of a series of prized original sunburst Les Paul Standards. As a result, each Collector's Choice guitar represents the closest thing possible to owning one of the best of the best of a rare run of guitars made between 1958 and 1960 that is already recognized as the most desirable production model in the history of the electric guitar. Collector's Choice #4, serial number 9-1228, a.k.a. "Sandy," is again the result of intense study, scanning and hands-on examination of the original guitar, a 1959 Les Paul Standard.
This specific guitar is number 22 in a limited run of around 300 in existance, and the photos are of the actual guitar!
