Here's a beautiful 22 year old Les Paul that's been in my personal collection for about 20 years.As you can see, it's an extremely rare 1999 Gibson Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Model Les Paul Standard. The guitar is a ReIssue of the original 1959 Les Paul Standard which sells for $100,000 to $300,000.Notice the guitar has a beautiful book matched AAA flametop with the high gloss Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish.
Like most of the guitars in my private collection, this one has spent most of it's life in the case, and rarely played, so the guitar is still in near mint to mint condition.
Most collectors and dealers, realize that Tom Murphy personally painted all of these guitars back in 1999. He did an incredible job and many collectors believe, that these are some of the most accurate '59 ReIssues that Gibson has ever produced. The bookmatched flame tops on these, were all hand picked as the 40th Anniversary Model was the crown jewel for Gibson that year. This is one of the most highly sought after Les Paul models and these guitars are going up rapidly in value, so it's also a great investment.
Gibson has also just announced ( on March 9, 2021 ) the creation of the " Murphy Lab " at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville TN. Tom is now leading an extremely talented crew of luthiers that he hand picked and trained, to age some of the most desirable Gibson guitars ever made. Among those are the 1954 1956 and 1957 Gold Top Les Paul Standard the 57 Les Paul TV Jr the '57 and '68 Ebony Black Beauty Les Paul Custom the 1958 1959 and 1960 Flametop Les Paul Standard the 1959 1960 and 1961 ES 335 the 1964 Trini Lopez the 1960 DC Double Cut Les Paul Special the 1960 Les Paul Junior the 1957 Single Cut TV Les Paul Junior the 1963 Reverse Model FireBird V the 1963 SG Special the 1963 Les Paul / SG Custom and the 1964 SG Standard Model guitars. ..........."Nashville, TN(March 9, 2021) -- Gibson, the iconic American instrument brand has announced the launch of The Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab is an all-new lab within the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville that is wholly dedicated to the art of aging guitars using the latest and most sophisticated technology, science, and tools.

An original 1999 40th Anniversary Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Brochure and a brand new copy of the book Beauty Of The Burst by Yasuhiko Iwanade
( with a forward by Ted McCarty and published by Hal Leonard )
This book was published in 1999 and it describes in great detail the 1958 1959 and 1960 Les Paul Standard guitars. In the book, there are several great pictures of these legendary guitars. Each of the 40th Anniversary Model 1959 ReIssue R9 Les Paul Standards were shipped with a copy of this book.
Gibson only made these guitars for one year, in 1999, and like this one, most of them are still in private collections. The guitar weighs in at just 8.6 pounds which is a full two to three pounds less, than a lot of the AAAAA Killer K flametops or even the hand picked custom ordered Yamano R9 Monster Top Brazilian Rosewood models or Tom Murphy Aged Custom Shop R9 Les Pauls. We absolutely love the work that Tom Murphy does and he's one of the most respected luthiers on the planet, but why spend $20,000 on an Aged Model that's been scratched and beat up, when you can have a near mint and highly collectable 40th Anniversary 1959 ReIssue Les Paul like this, for the same price ? Collectable Guitars are like Collectable Classic Cars and the cleaner they are, the more they're worth. I'd certainly rather have a nice clean 1957 Chevy Bel Air ( or a near mint R4 R5 R6 R7 R8 R9 R0 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958 1959 1960 Les Paul Standard or Custom ) than an "aged one" any day.
Once again, this guitar was made in 1999 and like any 18 to 20 year old used vintage instrument, it's not perfect, but it's very close. The frets are all original and reflect very little use, so it hasn't been played much at all. The guitar is extremely clean and in near mint to mint condition. The case reflects some normal use but it's also in great shape and everything on it works properly.
We rarely get in 40th Anniversary Model 1959 Les Pauls, especially with a flame top like this one. And that's not to mention all of the factory original extras, like this guitar has.
Whoever buys this beautiful guitar, will be very pleased, and you're certainly welcome, to make a reasonable offer.___________________________________________________________________
