For sale is a 2015 Gibson Custom Shop CC #22 Tommy Colletti ‘59 Les Paul Custom Aged Black Beauty with the original case and certificate of authenticity.
Gibson Custom Introduces Collector's Choice #22- Tommy Colletti's 1959 Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty", a very precise replica of the original owned by Tommy (owner of The Music Zoo in New York and longtime Gibson Custom Shop Dealer), featuring True Historic Finish processes and build techniques. Each one of this very limited run of guitars (up to 300 worldwide) has a True Historic Vintage Lamp Black finish and sports double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck profiles taken directly from the original via digital scanning.
This guitar is in excellent condition, and in perfect working order. This guitar is a relic so it has lots of factory finish checking, dings, and wear. There is a ding on the bottom back of the neck that I'm pretty positive is not factory but it blends in with the rest of the guitar very well and you'll never feel it as it at the heel of the neck. Overall, I would rate the condition a solid 9 out of 10. Everything on the guitar is original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues and plays great. The original frets are in excellent condition with no wear. The original case works great.
