Gibson's 2003 Custom Shop Les Paul Reissues reached a new level of compulsive attention to historical detail. This spectacular 1959 ‘Killer Top’ LPR9 Reissue was one of the very first R9’s supplied to only fifty Gibson endorsement artists during 2003. We have the original Gibson certificate confirming its Brazilian Rosewood production along with additional correspondence from the artist corroborating ownership.
Brazilian ‘LPR9’s from 2003 are some the most revered guitars in modern history. They continue to command ever-increasing prices and global recognition as legendary instruments.
Serial Number 9 3047 is one of the best examples currently for sale in the current market and supplies a unique opportunity for investment and pure pleasure. It’s not only one of the greatest Les Paul's ever built, but also a part of Gibson’s history. Simply put - other than an original '59 it gets no better.
