    The Gibson Custom Shop Collectors Choice Program endeavors to work with passionate collectors to reproduce some of the finest examples from their collection. This opens up so many wonderful opportunities to showcase these rare and amazing instruments, some known and many unknown - giving the fans of these instruments the opportunity to get a Custom Shop limited number reproduction of these gems.
    The Gibson Collectors Choice #1 Melvyn Franks 1959 Les Paul - an incredible reproduction from the private collection of Melvyn Franks. For those who don't know, Franks was lucky enough to purchase an original 1959 Les Paul Burst - a fine instrument once belonging to Gary Moore and Peter Green, and a piece he was thrilled to have among his collection!
    As with every reproduction of an existing model, the Gibson Custom Shop has painstakingly turned over every stone to properly recreate the guitar in as exacting detail as possible. This includes the out of phase middle position tone, the missing silver inserts on the top two tophat control knobs, the reversed neck pickups (with adjustable pole pieces facing the bridge) and the accurate neck shape, complete with accurate aging.
    In addition, the Collectors Choice #1 captures all the historically accurate details that make a Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul the most accurate reproduction of the Burst ever produced. Details such as the deep-set long neck tenon, correct body top binding in the cutaway, accurate BurstBucker PAF-humbucking pickup reproductions, rounded 59 neck profile, and 17-degree back-angled headstock all give this guitar the feel and tone of the real deal.
    Produced in strictly limited numbers! The Melvyn Franks 1959 Les Paul is treated to Gibson's VOS process, protected in a Custom Shop hardshell case and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
