2016 Gibson Les Paul 1959 Rick Nielsen Aged and Signed True Historic Reissue
Amazing guitar with serial below #010. Sound huge and truly amazing.
Gibson Custom is excited to release the Rick Nielsen 1959 Les Paul Standard, original serial number 9 0655,
a replica based on Rick’s original, serial number 9 0655.
Rick and the original have been together for over 25 years, since the charismatic guitarist of mega band Cheap Trick
added the guitar to his vast collection. Unlike most of Rick’s collection however, his original ’59 has become a
constant stage and studio companion. Rick even travels with it today, much to the dismay of his touring crew
who are quick to point out that the majority of the band’s insurance rider costs on tour are used to cover Rick’s rather
valuable original ’59. Gibson Custom worked very closely with Rick to create a replica so convincing that he intends
to retire the original, having now put the prototype and its standard side by side and found it to be worthy to take the
original’s place in his tour arsenal.
