This is a truly one-of-a-kind instrument directly from the Gibson Custom Shop! Originally built in 1996 as a finish sample for Yamano instruments in Japan, this guitar remained in the Custom Shop for years before a Gibson employee decided to finish building it for himself. This guitar was acquired directly from a Gibson employee and has never before been offered for sale! This guitar offers all the benefits of a 25 year old instrument but is in brand new condition! It includes a new Gibson hardshell case. If you’re looking for a new guitar with the sound of an old guitar, this is a fantastic choice! EXC w/OHSC $4,995.
