2009 Gibson Les Paul 1957 Historic 57 Custom Shop R7 Made-to-Measure Special Order One-Off ~ Kerry Green

You’re looking at a 2009 Gibson Les Paul 1957 Historic Custom Shop with an extremely rare Kerry Green gloss finish, bound rosewood fretboard and burstbucker pickups! This guitar was a “made-to-measure” special order which pre-dates the limited edition run of 50 which hit production in 2011-2012. It has been said that this guitar actually inspired that special run, though this detail has not been confirmed. What we CAN confirm is the guitar is an absolute monster in every aspect! Yes, she’s pretty to look at, but if it’s tone you’re after, just plug in and stand back! This one is a winner! She’s 100% original, and we just put on a fresh new set of 10-46’s, so she’s all dressed up and ready to rock your world!

She was just born on July 26th, 2009 and has been totally babied! The guitar is  in excellent condition with no nicks or dings to report. There are a few mild scratches where the pick-arm rests… and some yellowish discoloration on the back of the neck, and a bit on the back of the body as well. The guitar is exceptional despite these minor flaws. Also included is the original special edition WHITE Gibson custom shop hard shell case, a mountain of case candy, leather strap, nice factory cable, and the certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
