Gibson Custom Shop Collector’s Choice Number 13 Gordon Kennedy 1959 Les Paul “The Spoonful Burst”

When Gordon Kennedy received his original ’59 Les Paul in 2000, it was the realization of a personal dream. Not only was Gordon holding one of the most sought after and rare guitars in the world, but he also held one with a deep legend of musical heritage, popular music and ownership by a cultural icon. What he held was the sole guitar that had accompanied the musical journey of John Sebastian, best known for a brilliant and colorful career as the front man of The Lovin’ Spoonful. In this very special guitar’s memories are a string of hit songs including Do You Believe in Magic?, Nashville Cats and Welcome Back, the theme song for the hit TV show, Welcome Back Kotter. A limited run of up to 300 guitars will be built and each will come with a Tie Dye dust cover and a copy of the hand written letter from John Sebastian that details the guitars history. Here are the details: Dirty Lemon finish, Serial number CC13A-151, Figured Maple top, One piece Mahogany body, Aniline Dye used on the body and neck, Accurate vintage color fingerboard and body binding that is a darker Cream to match the original 50’s era binding, Hide Glue neck fit, Single layer Rosewood fingerboard, New Historic truss rod assembly without the tube surround, Custom Bucker bridge and neck pickups with Alnico III magnets, ABR-1 bridge with lightweight Aluminum stopbar tailpiece, Bumble Bee tone caps, Kluson “Deluxe” Green tuning keys, 8.6 pounds, With hardshell case
