This Gibson Custom Collector's Choice No. 30 Vic DaPra 1959 Les Paul Gabby is available on a limited-run of just 300 worldwide - and you can grab your at PMT East London!
Collector's Choice guitars provide an opportunity for players around the world to experience the precise look, feel and tone of some of the rarest guitars in history.
As it goes, the original owner of this exceptionally clean, beautifully flamed ''Burst'' decided it was time to see what the vintage market thought of her, so he reached out to the most trusting source he could think of, the same company that had built the guitar in 1959, just before he claimed her from a local dealer. Because Gibson isn't in the business of the appraising vintage guitars, Gabby's appraisal was entrusted to Vic DaPra, noted collector and vintage guitar expert.
When they recreate a specific vintage Gibson through hands-on access to it afforded by the generous soul that owns in today, Gibson are able to capture and reproduce its every characteristic in amazing details: its neck shape, tone, dish carve and wear just to name a few. Not all guitars are made equal and nowhere is this more true than with vintage guitars.
Now in a limited edition of up to 300 guitars, contingent on the availability of qualifying materials, Gibson has worked hand-in-hand with both Ronny and Vic to capture the essence of one of the most storied 1959 ‘Bursts” of all time.
The "Gabby" is based on an immaculate 1959 Cherry Burst beauty and retains every ounce of soul and character from that magic era. If an original 1959 Les Paul is rare, an original that's been in the first owner's possession since 1959 is almost mythical. If not for the clear lineage of ''Gabby', her story would be hard to believe.
