Super Deluxe LP 59 Flame Maple Top Electric Guitar Kit
The Gibson Les Paul 1959 Flame Top is just a beautiful guitar and a fantastic instrument.
The 1959 Les Paul`s are some of the most highly sought-after guitars in the world. They regularly fetch six-figure sums, and a well-preserved `59 with a coveted flame maple top could easily fetch half a million dollars or more.
This is a beautiful kit that will produce a sensational, quality guitar. The accuracy of the instrument has been ensured with a precision CNC routed and chambered body to the 59 specifications and all the materials and fittings are superb quality.
From a builder’s perspective this is awesome fun. You get to select your own Flame Maple top prior to it being jointed and applied to the body blank. Then, simply enjoy carving the high quality, beautiful top, and shaping a quarter sawn neck to the original (or your) specifications. The premium, slotted Fingerboard in East Indian Rosewood or Ebony, has been CNC routed to accept the trapezoid inlays, to ensure a professional, luxury, feel and appearance
As an instrument, they drive like an expensive sports car. Their dynamics are almost infinite, and you can go from whisper quiet, to blowing people away, back to whisper quiet in about a bar.
