You are looking at a Gibson Custom Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar Washed Cherry VOS, serial number R060053. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 12.7 oz.)

Gibson Custom is proud to introduce the Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard, which brings the vintage sound, feel and vibe of the original '60 slim-neck, last-year 'Burst into the hands of today's players at an exceptional value. Holding true to the Les Pauls made in '60, the Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard incorporates an array of vintage-accurate features and appointments to give this re-creation the authentic look and tone of the originals.

The Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard starts out with a hand-selected lightweight mahogany back beneath a stunning book-matched flame maple top to give this reissue that authentic tone and look. Allowing the guitar to age and breathe just as they did in the good ol' days, this beauty also comes dressed in a hand-sprayed nitro lacquer finish in a gracefully faded Washed Cherry VOS with period-correct aniline dye filler. Offering that genuine tonal response of those vintage Les Pauls, the Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard features a hot hide glue construction and an accurate Historic long tenon neck joint. The quartersawn mahogany neck is shaped into a slimmer period-correct '60s profile and is capped with a solid one-piece Indian rosewood fretboard.

Allowing you to experience all the timeless growl, bite and chime of those revered vintage "Patent Applied For" humbuckers, the Standard Historic 1960 Les Paul Standard comes equipped with a pair of Custom Bucker pickups that were made in the image of those original PAFs. The traditional control compliment includes a 3-way switch and independent volume & tone controls for each pickup. Comes complete with vintage-accurate nickel-plated hardware including a set of Reissue Kluson Deluxe Green Key Single Band tuning machines, an ABR bridge with thumbwheels, and a reissue lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece. Includes reissue hardshell case, a bound Certificate of Authenticity, and an extra black plastic Treble/Rhythm switch cover plate.
