Here is Gibsons very own description of this fantastic guitar. The Collector’s Choice™ series from Gibson Custom brings to life specific vintage Les Pauls from the collections of noted ’Burst aficionados, with the kinds of painstaking details only possible thanks to the intimate hands-on access afforded by these guitars’ current owners. Right from the late 1960s, through his work with Linda Ronstadt, Warren Zevon, Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, James Taylor and the Rolling Stones, Waddy Wachtel became rock’s best-known sideman and session player—a household name amid a crowd usually not seen in the spotlight. It is with extreme pride and great pleasure, therefore, that we present Collector’s Choice™ #14 1960 Les Paul aka “Waddy Wachtel Burst”. Selected by Waddy in 1968 from Stephen Stills’s extensive collection, this prized guitar has been with him through countless hits and sold-out tours.
