Product Description

“Louis” is the go to companion of Keith Nelson, founding member of So Cal band Buckcherry, making it a familiar voice to a loyal fan base that spans the globe. After thirty years cautiously tucked away in a private collection, “Louis” was put back on the front lines as an everyday workhorse for both studio and stage when Keith fell in love with its unique, classic Les Paul tone. Through a longtime friend and vintage guitar broker, Keith had the once in a lifetime opportunity to put six original 1959 Les Paul’s through their paces, pouring over each one’s weight, feel and most importantly, its sound. In the end, Keith found his Les Paul tone in “Louis” and it’s been a nonstop partnership ever since. A limited run of up to 300 aged guitars will be built. Here are the details: Nelson Dirty Lemon finish, Serial number CC17A-188, 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, ’57 Classic bridge and Burst Bucker #3 neck pickups, ABR-1 bridge with lightweight Aluminum stopbar tailpiece, Bumble Bee tone caps, Kluson “Deluxe” Green tuning keys, 8.4 pounds, With hardshell case
