Part of the coveted Collectors Choice series from the Gibson Custom Shop which replicates specific '50s and '60s Les Pauls down to the color, aging and neck profiles - this is a 2012 Collectors Choice #3 "The Babe" '60 Les Paul. This is based on a really interesting transition '59 to '60 era Les Paul which was at one point owned by Joe Bonamassa. It's one of the very few original verifiable '60 Les Pauls that had a factory installed Bigsby tailpiece! The guitar is accurately replicated by Gibson from the aluminum bridge baseplate to the unique Cherry Tea Burst color over a 2-piece Eastern plain maple top. The wear is all original on the guitar, with the hardshell case and COA included!
