Joe’s Guitar of the Week

Guitar of The Week #10 – 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard # 9-1951. This guitar is known as the Skinner burst and has been renamed Principal Skinner by me. This guitar was purchased in Appleton, Wisconsin and has had 4 owners in its lifetime. The Father from 1959 to 1980, the son from 1980 to 2006 (he sold it with Dad’s permission to buy a cabin on the lake in Benton, Minnesota), my friend Ronny Proler and myself 2011 to present. It is truly a special sunburst Les Paul and is the flagship of my collection. I love this guitar.
