SOLD! - 2002 Gibson Gary Rossington Murphy Aged '59 Les Paul Standard Lynyrd
Comes with a rare AGED Gibson Les Paul Lifton reissue hardshell case.
On July 18, 2002 the Gibson Custom Shop released the Gary Rossington Signature Les Paul, a replica of his beloved original burst nicknamed "Bernice". This special run of guitars was limited to 250 Worldwide. These guitars Have become highly sought after, earning a reputation of being some of the best playing Les Pauls ever produced.
It is beautifully aged by master luthier Tom Murphy and you can see and feel it is some of his best work! This Reissue contributed in no small way to Tom Murphy's now legendary status... The color, fading and burst are so beautiful that it looks different in different circumstances, sunlight, faded red, teaburst, honey, lemon drop, its all there depending on how you look at it. Nice flame and grain that can look anything from calm to a raging wildfire!
It is so rare to find a guitar of this caliber for sale. Whether you are a player or collector, this guitar would be the crown jewel to any collection! There's nothing to think about! Buy it now or kick yourself when it's gone! Stunning axe, great investment!
This babe is 1 of only 250 made in 2002 and comes incl the original COA and an AGED Gibson Les Paul Lifton reissue hardshell case. The finish over the script "Gary Rossington" signature on the back of the headstock has come loose a bit so it's not as clear anymore but nothing serious. The guitar has playwear and marks from gigging but nothing that sticks out as the Gibson Ageing on the Rossington is pretty intens anyway... ;-)
It looks great, feels incredible and the tone is MASSIVE!
