Gibson 1959 Les Paul ''Beauty Of The Burst'' Stanley Burst replica w/OHSC

Gibson 1959 Les Paul ''Beauty Of The Burst'' Stanley Burst Replica w/OHSC

"Stanley Burst" Replica # 9 1876

Gibson Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue "Beauty of the Burst"

This guitar is here on consignment and it is in great shape. The guitar was aged by Tom Murphy so it is heavy weather checked along with some other signs of light wear. The guitar is in perfect playing shape with well crowned frets, a functioning truss rod and a straight neck.

Here we have one of the coolest, rarest and most sought after Gibson Les Paul guitars, next to an actual vintage 1959 Les Paul- One of the legendary ‘’Beauty Of The Burst’’ guitars from 2003. Not only is it one of the “Beauty Of The Burst” guitars, it is the definitive “Beauty Of The Burst” guitar- A replica of The “Stanley Burst”, which is prominently featured on the cover of the book. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an absolutely unbelievable instrument.
The guitar looks and sounds great. The top is killer- painted and aged by Tom Murphy specifically to replicate the actual “Stanley Burst” Les Paul featured on the cover and p. 92/93 of “The Beauty of the Burst” book by Yasuhiko Iwanade. It is stamped with the original, vintage serial number “9 1876” on the back of the headstock (the other serial number is inside the control cavity). Original hardshell case and both certificates included. The weight is 8.6lbs.
Some background on the Gibson, Beauty of the Burst (BOTB) Les Paul guitars:
Back in 2002/2003, Gibson took orders for replicas of the Les Paul guitars featured in the book, ‘'The Beauty Of The Burst'', by Yasuhiko Iwanade. Almost all of these ''BOTB'' guitars were one of a kind except for a few of the most sought after guitars. (This is the second Stanley Burst I have had through my shop) These do not come up for sale very often.
The “BOTB” guitars were based on Gibson Historic 1958/59/60 Les Paul Reissues, each with a top and finish replicating an instrument featured in the book and two serial numbers- the actual vintage serial number in the traditional position on the back of the headstock and the contemporary serial number stamped inside the control cavity. Special BOTB Certificates of Authenticity with both serial numbers, as well as the traditional Certificate of Authenticity were issued with each guitar. Apparently this was a very difficult undertaking by Gibson (someone literally had to check through all the tops on hand and match them to orders for guitars in the book). That complexity, along with the fact that (in typical Gibson fashion) permission was never properly obtained to embark on such a project, resulted in very few of these “BOTB” Les Pauls ever being shipped (approximately 36 total).
This ''BOTB'' was originally purchased from Rick Van Heel at ''Music Machine'' in Kennewick, WA. His name is on the envelope containing the certificates.
