This a limited edition Gibson Custom Shop “Collector’s Choice” recreation of the famous “Blackburst” 1960 Les Paul now owned by Joe Bonamassa. The original guitar was custom ordered in 1960 because the owner could not afford a Les Paul Custom but wanted the striking black finish found on those models. Gibson simply painted a black anodyne dye on top of an existing Sunburst Standard model. This re-issue follows the same process, starting with a standard “Sunburst” finish over which a black finish is applied. The guitar includes the original paperwork and case candy, including photos of the guitar prior to the black finish being applied. In addition to a great playing and sounding guitar with plenty of extras, this example has been signed by Joe Bonamassa; care taker of the guitar on which this is based. EXC w/OHSC $5,500
