You are looking at a Gibson Custom True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar Murphy Aged Vintage Dark Burst, serial number 95538. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 2.0 oz.)

Bringing you closer than ever before to owning the most revered Les Paul in Gibson history, Gibson Custom is proud to introduce the True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue. Taking vintage reissues to all new heights, the True Historic 1959 Les Paul boasts an extensive array of vintage-correct appointments and features such as a double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, a hand wet-sanded nitro lacquer finish in your choice of three classic 'Burst colors, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and historically-accurate plastics that have been re-created through molecular-level analysis of the original vintage parts—just to name a few. The Gibson Custom True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue faithfully captures all the authentic tone, feel and looks of one of Gibson’s most sought-after vintage models.

Made with all of the time-tested ingredients that helped make the originals legendary, the True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue sports a hand-selected lightweight mahogany back, a beautifully figured maple cap featuring an original 1959 Les Paul dish carve, authentic single-ply True Historic Reissue cream binding, and vintage-accurate hand-applied hide glue adhesive for that classic tonal response.

For that old-school Gibson feel and playability, the one-piece, 24.75"-scale mahogany neck is carved into a genuine 1959 Les Paul profile and carries a one-piece, 12"-radius solid Indian rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets. Holding true to the originals, the True Historic 1959 Les Paul features a reissue neck joint with hide glue adhesive, a thinner 1959 True Historic Holly head veneer, a nylon nut and a Historic Reissue truss rod with no tubing. True Historic Reissue cream binding, aged nitrocellulose trapezoid fretboard inlays and tortoise shell side dots cater to the authentic Gibson aesthetic.

Featuring a True Historic wet-sanded thin lacquer finish with period-correct aniline dye filler, the Gibson Custom True Historic 1959 Les Paul is available in your choice of three classic 'Burst colors that represent the varying degrees in which the original 'Burst finish had faded: Vintage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Dark Burst and Vintage Lemon Burst. For added vintage appeal, the True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is also offered in Murphy Aged or Custom Shop Aged Vintage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Dark Burst, and Vintage Lemon Burst finiesh.

The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue comes equipped with a pair of Custom Bucker pickups with vintage-accurate True Historic Replica VOS nickel covers. Made to the exacting specs of the originals, these pickups dish out that 'Burst-certified tone and legendary PAF growl & bite that helped make the Les Paul an instant classic. The traditional control compliment consists of a 3-way toggle and independent tone and volume controls for each pickup.

The hardware and plastics used on the True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue hold true to the originals in every way. The vintage-correct genuine nickel-plated hardware consists of an ABR thumbwheel bridge, a reissue lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and a set of reissue Kluson Deluxe Green Key Single Band tuning machines. All of the plastics including the pickguard, truss rod cover, control knobs, backplate cover, switch washer and trim rings have all been faithfully re-created through molecular-level analysis of the originals.

The Gibson Custom True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue comes with the full protection of a period-correct reissue brown Les Paul hardshell case with pink fur lining. A bound Custom Shop True Historic Certificate of Authenticity completes the package.
