We can’t help but watch in awe as Gibson continues to roll out more from their “Collectors Choice” series. 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.
Well, Gibson sure hit the nail on the head for rare guitar collectors with number 30 of the Collectors Choice series. Nicknamed “Gabby,” the Gibson Appraisal Burst is a guitar that takes originality to a whole new level. “Gabby” is an original 1959 Les Paul owned by one person since… you guessed it, 1959. It’s an original burst with all-original tone to match. From it’s original pickups, to its impeccably preserved maple top, it’s no wonder Gibson chose this elite guitar to re-create. This guitar will be set to release in limited quantities, so if your’re interested in owning 1 of the 300 guitars available, check them out right here on our site!
