In on trade is this Gibson Custom Shop Mike Bloomfield 59 Les Paul VOS. It is in very nice shape. It is clean, cosmetically though it was aged at the factory for an authentic look. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case. We do not have the original certificate of authenticity but we do have a letter from Gibson verifying this is a Mike Bloomfield 59 LP VOS.
This guitar, based on Mike Bloomfield's very own '59 'burst Les Paul, is one of 300 guitars made. Of which, only 200 received the VOS aging treatment. Its features are pretty much identical to an original 1959 Les Paul; a carved, nicely figured flame maple top and solid mahogany body, and a mahogany neck with a bound rosewood fretboard and a holly headstock veneer. The pickups are a BurstBucker 1 in the neck position and a BurstBucker 2 at the bridge. The electronics also feature the Bumble Bee capacitors and CTS pots, while the tuners are Grover rotomatics with kidney buttons.
