Gibson Collectors Choice #38 Chicken Shack Burst

The early 1960s burst differentiate from their 1959 predecessors only by the serial number. They had the same strong neck, the same sunburst finish and - in rarer cases, like the Chicken Shack Burst - a very nicely grained top. The Collector's Choice #38 is a replica of this guitar, which bears the original serial number #00205. One of the former owners of this guitar is Stan Webb, who founded the band Chicken Shack in 1965, who played this burst live until the 1980s, before selling it to Vic DaPra in the early 1990s and returning it to their homeland.

Gibson Collector's Choice
With the Collector's Choice series introduced in 2010, Gibson has landed a massive coup. Following the success of the 1:1 copies of guitars played by celebrities such as Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page or Gary Rossington, the Collector's Choice series extends the portofolio by offering 1:1 copies of vintage Les Pauls, which are owned by collectors and hence not that popular (yet), but nevertheless are fantastic instruments. The efforts involved in this procedure are almost beyond imagination. The most important aspect of a Collector's Choice is, that the original guitar gets scanned by a laser. To execute this, the guitar either comes to Gibson, or Gibson goes to the guitar. Whatever is necessary to receive a copy as perfect as possible. The tiniest details of each model are meticulously documented and reproduced because, as Custom Shop Historic Program Manager Edwin Wilson states, "our customers would never detect these details on the original guitar by themselves, but they expect us to do so.
