This may be the only Left Handed 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Conversion in the world. The donor guitar was a refin 1957 Left Handed Les Paul Jr with some issues. Dan Shinn at Lay’s Guitar Shop(they have been doing outstanding work since 1962!) did a fantastic job of transforming that guitar into the closest thing to a real Left Handed Burst for a fraction of the price! There are only 4 documented Lefty Bursts,(McCartney, McEnroe, Stroup, and Florida Bursts). None of these are for sale and knowing the owners, will probably never become available for sale.
Patterned after the legendary Brock Burst, this Les Paul has all the qualities you could want in a Left Handed Burst: Beautiful flametop, strong cherry sunburst, great weight, 59 profile neck, tremendous tone and playability.
