夢幻逸品2011 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Collector's Choice #2 CC#2 "Goldie" Tom Murphy Aged
Collector's Choice是原廠號稱地球上最接近真正元年Gibson的系列，將依然存在於收藏家手中的50-60年代Les Paul包括外觀、傷痕、音色、規格等完整復刻。CC琴款是多數Gibson收藏家們最夢寐以求收藏的型號，也是Gibson最頂級的復刻系列，用料與音色都經過嚴格檢驗，從使用痕跡、傷痕與木材和拾音器等都完全複製，音色可說是完全沒有缺陷，也是Gibson量產琴中收藏性最高的系列之一。
目前市面上最稀有且最受歡迎的CC莫過於前期的#1 #2 #4 #8，其中CC#2 "Goldie"是Gibson Custom於2010年發表的第二款CC，全球限量300支，由Gibson傳奇技師Tom Murphy操刀，復刻於編號9-0629的1959 Les Paul Standard，CC系列只有三款為由Tom Murphy舊化，分別為CC#1 CC#2與CC#13，這也是除了CC#1以外，最稀有少見的一款CC，非常難得。Goldie是一支很有指標性的Les Paul Burst，原琴早期由知名收藏家Tom Wittrock所擁有，第一次曝光是在80年代的達拉斯吉他展上，因為擁有元年Les Paul中難得一見的大虎紋，搭配上Sunburst褪色成Lemon Burst的經典配色而聲名大噪。原廠除了紋路挑選與原琴相近的大虎紋外，還完整複製了原琴的所有規格、配色、零件與使用傷痕，讓整體細節都盡可能接近原琴。原廠配置一組Burstbucker I & III PAF拾音器，這組特製的拾音器能讓音色更接近原琴上的PAF。CC#2 Goldie一直被譽為是相當復古的一款CC，重量只有3.77KG，中高低頻出力平均、乾淨，相較於現代的R9，輸出較小些，整體音色取向非常接近真正的元年Burst。
CC系列一直以來都是保值、增值的象徵，更別說是前幾號又是Tom Murphy所製作的高收藏價值的CC，而CC#2 Goldie這幾年在市場上幾乎沒有販售的蹤跡，今年釋出價格幾乎都要台幣四十幾萬起跳，未來增值空間相當大。近全新收藏品，有興趣的玩家們把握收藏機會。

Launched in the spring of 2010, Gibson Custom's Collector's Choice™ '59 Les Paul series focuses on meticulous recreations of rare and specific existing examples from the extremely short run of Les Paul Standards produced in 1959.
The second model produced in this series, serial number 9-0629 (aka "Goldie") is an instrument that presents several of the most desirable aspects of these highly sought-after electric guitars. Crafted with close analysis of the original by Gibson Custom, including digital scanning and measurement from every conceivable perspective, "Goldie" totally embodies the spirit of the Collector's Choice™ series by recreating this original individual '59 Les Paul in as near-to-perfect detail as is humanly possible. As such, the instrument presents a rare opportunity for players and collectors alike: a precise reincarnation of the look, tone, and feel of one of the world's most elusive electric guitars. "Goldie" will be reproduced in strictly limited numbers, with all guitars sent to world-renowned guitar-aging artist Tom Murphy for hand aging.
"Goldie" is an exciting opportunity not only because it is such a gorgeous Les Paul, but also because its ownership is extremely well documented, with only the first few years of its existence after heading from Gibson's Kalamazoo factory to its first owner near Deer Park, Texas, remaining slightly hazy. Having resurfaced in the early '80s at one of the first Dallas guitar shows, "Goldie" has graced the collections of several noted burst aficionados including Vic Da Pra and Tom Wittrock, the guitar is currently in the care of an anonymous collector and on loan to Gibson Custom. The guitar has also been extremely well cared for in its 52 years on this planet, suffering some of the minor nicks and dings that all well-played instruments experience in half a century of use—all precisely recreated by Tom Murphy's hand aging—but no breaks, repairs, or modifications. Also, this '59 Les Paul Standard's finish has naturally mellowed to a sweet, rich, golden "unburst," a luscious deep "green lemon" amber tone at the center with just a hint of darkening around the edges, giving it a look that many collectors adore. To precisely recreate the appearance of the original in the top of Collector's Choice™ #2 1959 Les Paul "Goldie," Gibson Custom has hand selected figured maple with a broad, elegant flame and "slip matched" the two pieces to present the same degrees of depth and dimension. Hand-finished in nitrocellulose lacquer and hand aged, this top is partnered by a light one-piece mahogany back which has faded to match the original's soft, mellow reddish-brown.
The playing feel of Collector's Choice™ #2 1959 Les Paul "Goldie" is ensured by a precise analysis of the neck profile of the original 1959 Les Paul Standard upon which it is based, and its perfect recreation in the one-piece quarter-sawn mahogany neck of this Custom Shop creation. The result is a gorgeously rounded late-'50s profile that measures approximately .900" at the 1st fret and .990" at the 12th. The rosewood fingerboard is bound in vintage-accurate and aged plastic, as is the body top, and a genuine nylon 6/6 nut and vintage-style tuners with single-band green keys grace the headstock. To recreate the tone of this rare Les Paul, Gibson Custom has selected a Burstbucker 1 for the bridge position and Burstbucker 3 for the neck, a pairing that accurately reflects the mismatch in output that was often found in original PAF sets. Together, they present a woody, throaty tone from the neck, and impressive chime and clarity from the bridge. All in all, Collector's Choice™ #2 1959 Les Paul "Goldie" is a total delight in sound, feel, and appearance, and the closest many players and collectors are ever likely to get to owning an actual 52-year-old 1959 Les Paul Standard.
