Gibson Custom CC #37 1959 Les Paul Reissue Proler “Carmelita” #9-1953 (Serial #CC37A047)

One of those “love to hate” projects that takes us a long time to pull together. Carmelita has an exceptional top; one that’s been difficult to source. For that reason, we’ll be releasing these at an estimated qty to begin with and will continue to seek qualifying wood. Forecasted quantities for the release are estimated and reasonably attainable. Carmelita has a great history behind her, having been
renamed by several owners (Hawaiian ‘Burst, The Claw). Her current owner raves about her “buttery feel” and “woman tone”. We’ve had plenty of time to spend with Carmelita, capturing her neck and top carve profiles, dialing in the feel and recreating her tone through a set of custom wound pickups. It’s unlikely we’ll be able to fulfill an entire CC run with this one, so we expect demand to be higher than the norm.
