The Gibson Custom Shop adds an eighth Les Paul guitar to its Collector's Choice collection, which is a 1959 'The Beast' model.

The fortunate owner of the original guitar recreated by the Gibson Custom Shop is Whitesnake's Bernie Marsden, who lent his 1959 Les Paul numbered 9-1914 in order to create the Collector's Choice #8 exact replica.

No less than 25 and no more than 300 guitars will be produced.
