Product Description

This is a Gibson 1957 black beauty reproduction by the professionals at Gibson Custom Shop. I purchased this guitar straight out of Musicians Friend Magazine back in 2006. Been playing it off and on ever since and have at all times kept it in it’s case in a controlled temperature environment.

This guitar plays very nice with no “buzzing” or “high” spots alongside the neck that can be a little annoying on other guitar necks. Comes with mirror gold faceplate, gold back panel covers, and knobs. I will additionally include the original parts with the purchase.

This guitar weighs in at 9.61 lbs. at regulated weight. *Note that every guitar will vary a little in weight due to each guitar being a unique piece of the same type wood.
