A 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard has been used by many Rock & Roll icons and is widely considered to be the Holy Grail among guitar aficionados. Guitar icons such as Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, and Jeff Beck has all made their indelible stamp in history while wielding Les Paul guitars from the late 1950’s.
The Custom '59 Factory Burst features a figured two-piece carved maple top paired with a solid, one-piece, lightweight mahogany body. The Cherry Sunburst finish with Gibson’s VOS aging process delivers just the right amount of vintage vibe and gives the guitar that comfortable, well worn-in feel and look. A hand-applied aniline dye on the back and sides of the body compliment the flame maple top perfectly. The neck is carved from solid mahogany and features a rosewood fingerboard with aged acrylic trapezoid inlays. The neck is complimented by aged cream colored binding with tortoise markers along the edges of the fingerboard.
Crucial to the ’59 Les Paul’s legacy is the unmistakable tone delivered by Gibson’s “Patent Applied For” humbucking pickups. This '59 Reissue Les Paul is equipped with a pair of chrome-covered, zebra coil ’57 Classic humbuckers with genuine Alnico II magnets for a rich response with outstanding articulation.
Rounding out the hardware is a set of Vintage-style Green Key tuners, and the classic pairing of an ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and wraparound aluminum tailpiece. Quantity of these incredible instruments will be limited to 100 pieces. Finally, the Gibson Custom '59 Reissue Les Paul Factory Cherry Burst Electric Guitar includes a Gibson Custom hardshell case, a Certificate of Authenticity and is covered by Gibson Custom's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.
