Description

Everybody wants a 59 and we all know why. It's that big ol' neck. Well, this is a 60 and I'm guessing the neck on this one is bigger than the neck on your 59 and it's going to cost you half as much. When I got this guitar, it had all of its original parts except that the neck had been broken and it was re-necked in 1965, almost certainly by Gibson. The guitar sounded just great but the neck was narrow with block markers and I though this guitar deserved better. I had it re-necked to 58-59 spec using a piece of old growth mahogany and a slice of Brazilian rosewood I have been holding onto since 1991. The headstock overlay is from the original Gibson neck as is the truss rod. All the parts are from the original 1960 build except for the harness which is from 1965. PAFs, original stop tail, no wire ABR-1, single line double ring tuners (replacement tips), original long guard, switch tip, knobs and truss rod cover. Get a guitar that will blow away your friend's 59 for half the price. Finally a dot neck you can afford that has the big neck you can't afford. The finish is original (except for the new neck). Last photo is the "before" shot. Beat up but functional original brown case
