Gibson Custom Shop Collector's Choice #4 "Sandy" '59 Les Paul Standard Reissue

Gibson CC#04 Sandy

Sandy is one of the 4 most wanted Collectors Choice Les Pauls and not often seen on the secondhand market. It is a breathtaking recreation to Tom Whittrock’s most prized burst #9-1228 from his extensive collection nicknamed "Sandy". One of the most iconic bursts in existence and featured in many books including The Beauty of the Burst book by Yasuhiko Iwanade which is also supplied with the guitar.

The Gibson Custom Shop produced a limited run of up to 300 of these in 2012 and the ageing was done by Gibson's man of the moment Mr Tom Murphy himself. This guitar is number 084 of the limited run and includes a stunning faded "Dirty Lemon Burst" finish, zebra-coil Custom Buckers with Alnico III magnets and a great medium neck profile scanned from the original guitar. 

As part of a private collection this guitar is in excellent condition and must be seen to be fully appreciated. An absolute beauty with custom shop case and case candy as you would expect.
