Greeny is one of the most iconic guitars in the world and about it and its sale has already been adequately reported and speculated. Gary Moore still had a second 1959 Les Paul. This guitar is by far not as legendary as Greeny, but he kept it because it was his favorite guitar. Les Paul collector and expert Tom Wittrock once gave the guitar the name STRIPE because of its striking top grain. STRIPE is the "Still Got The Blues" guitar and Gary Moore has used it on almost every album until his death. We at Musik Produktiv have now found that it is time to honour this guitar as well, and we have had Gibson build an appropriate instrument under the "Made 2 Measure" program. This is not an Official Signature or Collector's Choice model, this guitar is only modeled on the original Stripe.
