    Gibson Custom's Collector's Choice Series offers players and collectors alike an exacting replication of a specific, existing vintage Les Paul. To accurately recreate these historic and prized Les Pauls, Gibson Custom meticulously examines of every aspect of the original guitar—from precise measurements and specifications to vintage-accurate pickups and hardware—all combined with the unsurpassed craftsmanship you've come to expect from the master luthiers at Gibson Custom. Each of these Collector's Choice guitars embody the tone, feel, looks and character of a particular instrument down to every scratch and ding.

    From his work with UNICORN, to his highly successful solo career, and even through touring with Alt. rock band The Verbs here in the United States, Tamio Okuda has proved himself to be a world-renowned guitar hero. Since the 1990's and throughout his impressive musical career, Okuda has relied heavily on his original 'Burst, whether he was recording in the studio or performing on stage. Today, thanks to hands-on access to the original instrument, Gibson Custom is proud to introduce a stunning re-creation of Tamio Okuda's vintage '59 Les Paul (serial# 9-1165).

    For an authentic aesthetic, the Gibson Custom Collector's Choice #29 "Tamio Okuda 1959 Les Paul" #9-1165 sports a 1-piece genuine mahogany back with period-correct aniline dye and a uniquely figured maple top dressed in an accurately faded 'Burst finish. For classic Gibson comfort, playability and style, the 1-piece mahogany neck is carved into the exacting profile of the original while the 1-piece Indian rosewood fretboard carries a nylon nut as well as aged cellulose trapezoid inlays. A set of '57 Classic humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions faithfully deliver that coveted PAF voice that helped make the originals 'Bursts legendary. The Collector's Choice #29 also comes equipped with vintage-correct hardware including a set of reissue Kluson Deluxe tuners and the classic combination of an ABR-1 thumbwheel bridge and a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The finish has been aged by hand to accurately mirror the exact player wear and well-played vibe and mojo of the original. The Gibson Custom Collector's Choice #29 "Tamio Okuda 1959 Les Paul" #9-1165 comes with the full protection of a hardshell case and includes a leather-bound tri-fold Certificate of Authenticity.
