You are looking at a Gibson Custom Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged/Signed Electric Guitar Aged Reverse Burst, serial number #34. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 5.2 oz.)

Paying homage to an influential genre of music while supporting an incredibly worthy cause, Gibson Custom is proud to introduce the Limited Edition Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul. Since the birth of the genre in the late '60s, the vintage 'burst Les Pauls from the late '50s have been at the heart of Southern Rock, and today, this stunning tribute captures the tone, look and feel of those classic Les Pauls. Proceeds from sales will go to benefit members of the music community in need through Music Health Alliance and The Gibson Foundation.

Crafted in the hands of the highly-skilled luthiers of Gibson Custom and made with all the ingredients that made these guitars legendary, the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul boasts a feature set that's derived through vintage experts and members of the Southern Rock community. Unlike any reissue of its kind, the hand-selected, cream-bound figured maple top is dressed in a unique "Reverseburst" finish that showcases a subtle heart shape beneath the bridge and the bridge pickup. The genuine mahogany back also sports a commemorative medallion "Southern Rock Tribute" switch-cavity cover. Aside from those distinctive appointments, everything about the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul holds true to those vintage 'bursts. For an authentic feel, tone and classic playability, the full, rounded '59 mahogany neck with maple spline features a hot hide glue construction and is topped with a one-piece, 12-radius rosewood fingerboard. Catering to the traditional Les Paul aesthetic, the fingerboard is adorned with reissue cream binding and aged nitrocellulose trapezoid inlays. Equipped with a pair of Custom Bucker pickups that are made to the exacting specifications of vintage PAF humbuckers, the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul is brimming with sweet, juicy vintage tone. These pickups comes wired through through a classic control setup, featuring 2 volume controls, 2 tone controls with Bumble Bee tone caps and a 3-way toggle switch. Gracefully aged nickel hardware includes a set of reissue Kluson Deluxe Green Key Single Band tuners with a 12:01 tuning ratio and a traditional pairing of a Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminum stopbar tailpiece.

This instrument is #34 of the first 50 extremely Limited Edition Gibson Custom Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Pauls that have been aged by hand and signed by Gibson Custom's Southern Rock Ambassadors -- Dickey Betts, Charlie Daniels, Gary Rossington, Jimmy Hall, and vintage guitar expert Ronny Proler.
