available for immediate delivery


A faithful recreation of a '58 Burst right down to the chunky neck & blistering humbuckers. This one is in great shape & sports a gorgeous Dark Ice Tea Burst finish over a plain maple top. Muscular, yet dynamic tone & exceptionally resonant. Thanks to a pro set up from the experts at Cream City Music, it plays & sounds absolutely amazing!

Cosmetic Condition: Excellent condition overall with only mild play wear - light surface scratches with a few nicks & dings.

Neck: Chunky, one-piece mahogany neck with cream binding & tortoise side-dots. The cherry finish has "bled" into the binding a bit causing it to have more of a pinkish hue.
Beautiful rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl trapezoid inlays. Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear. Gibson Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons work perfectly. 1 11/16" nut width; 24 3/4" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod is in perfect working condition.
