Every guitar collector and Gibson enthusiast knows that 1959 was the rarest and most revered year of the esteemed 'Burst Les Paul Standards. Bringing the "Holy Grail" of electric guitars into the hands of today's discerning guitarists, Gibson Custom introduces a stunning re-creation of the most sought-after 'Burst with the '59 Les Paul Standard. With a true-to-year '59 construction, classic old-school-inspired electronics, and ultra-accurate replica hardware and plastics, this guitar really brings you as close as you can possibly get to owning a priceless original. Whether you're a vintage tone chaser, a classic Les Paul collector, or a Gibson aficionado, this '59 Les Paul Standard is sure to impress and will make an incredible addition to your collection.

True-to-Year '59 Construction
This Gibson Custom '59 Les Paul Standard was built and designed exactly how those legendary '59s were made back in the day. It boasts a genuine hide glue construction, a cream-bound, two-piece, beautifully-figured maple top, a lightweight solid mahogany back, an authentic '59-shaped mahogany neck with a long tenon neck joint, and a bound solid rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays. Adorned in nitrocellulose lacquer like the originals, the top comes available in a selection of 'Burst options that reflect the way the original sunburst finish had changed overtime on various vintage examples. The VOS finish gives this guitar the look of a gracefully aged vintage beauty.

Classic Old-School-Inspired Electronics
With a re-creation, it's not enough to just look and feel the part; it has to sound the part, too. Gibson Custom really nails the signature growl, bite, and warmth of the original "Patent Applied For" (PAF) humbuckers with their vintage-inspired Custombucker pickups. The hand-wired electronics include a Switchcraft toggle pickup switch and a traditional 4-knob control layout featuring CTS 500K pots and Bumblebee capacitors.

Ultra-Accurate Replica Hardware and Plastics
Faithfully replicated hardware and plastics are an understatement when it comes to this Les Paul. Gibson Custom went so far as to carefully examine the chemical composition of the parts so they could re-create it with the utmost accuracy. From the nickel ABR-1 bridge/lightweight tailpiece combo and Kluson tuners down to the replica plastics, you can't get any more accurate to the original than this unless you own an original '59.
