You are looking at a Gibson Custom Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar, serial number MM019. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 10.5 oz.)

An outstanding re-creation of the storied 'Burst owned by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, the Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul has all the vibe and tone of his original '59 that he tours and records with. Crafted to Gibson Custom's Standard Historic specifications, the Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul sports a hand-selected lightweight one-piece mahogany back and a 2-piece flame maple top that comes dressed in an accurate VOS'd 'Burst nitro lacquer finish. For that classic Gibson feel, the one-piece mahogany neck is carved into the exacting profile as Mike's '59 thanks to a digital scanning of the original neck. A Historic reissue long tenon neck joint with a period-correct hide glue construction caters to the authenticity of this reissue.

The Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul Standard comes equipped with a set of Custom Bucker pickups to faithfully deliver that genuine vintage PAF tone, which is a crucial part of Mike's signature sound. All of the Standard Historic plastics and nickel-plated hardware remain true to the original instrument, which includes a set of Grover Kidney tuning machines, an ABR Thumbwheel bridge and a reissue lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. Comes complete with a reissue hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.

Representing a rare opportunity for the discerning player or collector, only 150 of these VOS reissues will be made available.
