Gibson Custom Collector's Choice #6 1959 Les Paul "Number One" Limited Edition Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
A precise re-creation of a very special Les Paul
The Collector's Choice #6 1959 Les Paul "Number One" is based on a classic instrument that eventually found its way into the hands of Mike Slubowski. Built in 1959, "Number One" has weathered the passage of time unusually well. One of the cleanest vintage Gibson's of the era, this Collector's Choice guitar is a textbook example of what a '59 should be. The unique maple top is mismatched and looks like two totally different pieces of wood. The heel of the neck is consistent with the profile of the neck and very comfortable to play.
The PAF sound with a pair of CustomBuckers
Gibson Custom analyzed the sound of the original PAF humbucking pickups and re-created that vibe with a custom pair of CustomBucker humbuckers. These pickups use period-correct wire and a precise number of turns to create the tone we all know and love. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of the CustomBucker pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul!
Gibson Custom Shop quality and craftsmanship
Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the Collector's Choice #6 1959 Les Paul "Number One". Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which precisely re-created the feel and performance of the original "Number One". The fretboard and nut have an incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches, like the mismatched top and the accurately-aged hardware remain true to the original 1959 Les Paul Standard that "Number One" pays homage to.

These are amazing guitars!
by Mike Slubowski from America the BeautifulI'm obviously biased because I own the original Burst that was used to make these replicas, but Gibson did a great job! The necks feel great (less shoulder), the color is awesome and matches my Burst... read more [+], and the pickups sound great! Hats off to Edwin Wilson and the Gibson Custom team. I'm so impressed that I bought two of them myself! I'm also a previous Sweetwater customer, and they are a first class outfit to buy from! close [-]
