Description:
1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst Left-Handed Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 9 0136. Neck pickup ring appears to be a later replacement. Jackplate has also been replaced but original broken piece is in the case. Electronics are original but cover has been removed from the bridge pickup. Considerable finish checking around tuners and on the back of the headstock. Tuners have been replaced with older Kluson single wind tuners with no writing on the back. Finish is original and black lights correctly. Neck has been re-fretted. This is undoubtedly the same guitar pictured with John McEnroe on the cover of the Guitar Aficionado, Vol. 1/No. 4. Original hard case included. Condition: Good. Consigned by The United States Marshals Service. Profits benefit victims of the Aspen Energy Oil and Gas Investment Scheme.
