This 1960 Jeff Hanna Les Paul Standard is another awesome piece to roll in as a part of Gibson Custom’s “Collector’s Choice” line. For those who don’t know, the Collector’s Choice series comes straight from the Gibson Custom Shop, where Gibson takes a great vintage guitar—whether it be celebrity owned or a rare, all-original piece—and through the marvels of modern technology, create a limited run of a near-exact recreation of that instrument. Read on to learn more about Collector’s Choice #33!
Nearly fifty years ago, in Long Beach California, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band started turning heads, emerging as an integral force behind the explosion of rock music tinged with Americana, folk and country that was beginning to dominate radio. Multiple Grammy Awards and millions of album sales later, Jeff Hanna continues to make music around the world as one of the band’s founding and constant members. During forty plus of those years on the road, stage and in the studio, Jeff has held, played and formed an inseparable bond with #0-2176, his original 1960 Les Paul Standard. Now, more of us can experience the entrancing voice and feel of Jeff’s beloved 1960 ‘Burst. Full specs can be seen below!
