You are looking at a Gibson Custom Historic Select 1959 Les Paul Electric Guitar Vintage Cherry Sunburst, serial number HS950377. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 14.3 oz.)

The True Historic lineup from Gibson Custom consists of the most accurate, painstaking reproductions of their original legendary Les Paul models from the '50s. The Gibson Custom Historic Select program builds on the True Historic platform, but what sets it apart is that the Historic Select instruments allow for a more customized '50s Les Paul model.

This Historic Select 1959 Les Paul blends an array of classic vintage-correct '59 appointments with a selection of unique features that you typically wouldn't find on a stock True Historic model. Instead of the vintage-style Kluson tuning machines that you'd normally find on a True Historic 1959 Les Paul, this Historic Select 1959 Les Paul comes equipped with a set of accurate, precise Grover Kidney  tuners. You may also notice that this Historic Select 1959 Les Paul wears no pickguard and has no toggle switch washer. Why hide the beautifully-figured hand-selected maple top beneath plastics that you don't necessarily need? Don't worry though, the pickguard and switch washer are both inside the case if you ever decide that you want to use them. Offering all the classic sonic splendor of those late '50s Patent Applied For humbuckers, this Historic Select '59 Les Paul comes equipped with a pair of Custom Bucker pickups that are routed through a traditional control compliment. The uncovered zebra pickup in the bridge position lends to the distinctive look of this customized '59 Les Paul.

Classic '59 Les Paul features give this Historic Select its unmistakable vintage 'Burst appeal. These authentic features include a 2-piece, accurately-carved figured maple top over a lightweight mahogany body, a beefy '59 mahogany 24.75"-scale neck, a one-piece bound rosewood 'board with a nylon nut and reissue trap inlays, traditional hide-glue adhesives, and aged nickel hardware including an ABR-1 non-wire bridge with a lightweight stopbar tailpiece. Rounding out this vintage-inspired package, the Historic Select 1959 Les Paul comes loaded up with period-accurate True Historic plastics, and boasts cream binding, a Vintage Cherry Sunburst top vintage gloss finish, and reissue aniline dye for the back, neck and rims. Comes complete with a hardshell case and include a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson Custom.
