2014 1959 Gibson Custom Collectors Choice Whitford Burst CC#26

1959 Historic Limited Edition 1 of 300 made - Brad Whitford's '59 Paul of Aerosmith Replica

Mint As-New condition, weighs 8.3 lbs. and comes with all paperwork, documentation, and Historic case as new. All wear and relic is factory work to emulate Brad Whitford's 1959 Les Paul down to every last detail, scratch, nick and ding! In his unwavering pursuit of success, particularly through the challenges of Aerosmiths early years, Brad Whitford displays a kinship to the ultimate tenacity of the Les Paul design: the time-will-prove qualities and heroic achievements of a guitar that was not fully appreciated until half a decade after it was deleted from the Gibson catalog. In both cases, time proved that commitment can outwait fleeting opinion, and that talent and craft are ultimately undeniable. The end result: Aerosmith became one of the worlds most important rocknroll bands, and the Les Paul became the most significant guitar in rock history.

Brads original 1959 Les Paul is an absolute tone-monster, and a guitar of exceptional feel and authentic, road-worn patina”not to mention the long-time favorite playing companion of a major hit-making artist”so when he offered it up for Gibson Customs Collectors Choice series, the opportunity resonated on every level.

Following the side-by-side collaboration between Brad and Gibson Customs Nashville luthiers, Collectors Choice #26 1959 Les Paul Whitford Burst captures every nuance of look, tone, and feel of Brads original, from its individual neck profile, to the output of its original Custombuckers, to the dents, dings, and finish fade that are all part of its just right vintage Burst appearance, this is the closest you could possibly come to owning Brads actual 59 Les Paul, and a truly stunning acquisition for player and collector alike. Collectors Choice #26 will be crafted in a strictly limited run of 300 guitars.
