We’ve got to admit, this is really exciting for us. As dealers of the excellent Gibson Custom Shop Collectors Choice series – it’s a privilege for us to offer the new Collectors Choice #22, the Tommy Colletti 1959 Les Paul Custom. Tommy, who is the owner of The Music Zoo worked very closely with the Custom Shop to recreate his personal ’59 Custom, from every last nick and ding down to the very unique neck which has a very soft “V” profile to it that fits right in the palm of your hand.
There’s a cool backstory to the original Les Paul from which this Collectors Choice came; it originally belonged to James Honeyman-Scott, guitarist and founding member of The Pretenders. Acquired by Tommy a number of years ago, the guitar retains all of its original characteristics and vibe from its time with Honeyman-Scott. We even have the case with The Pretenders logo stenciled onto it (the CC #22 does not come with such a case). It’s not often that people can play both the Collectors Choice and the original that spawned it, but we’re lucky enough to do so and can say that this is as close as it gets!
Includes: Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Hang Tags, Paperwork
