Some truly masterful aging on this beautiful True Historic Les Paul! Tom Murphy is a real genius when it comes to his craft and the aging on this guitar is totally out of this world. This is the first aged True Historic '59 Vintage Dark Burst we've had come in and it was absolutely worth the wait!
When you look at these guitars up close, that's were you really see the attention to detail that's gone into them, the plastics look just 'right' and the colour just has the correct amount of red
With the True Historic range, Gibson Custom commits to a fanatic level of detail accuracy to bring you as close as possible to owning an original 1960 Gibson Les Paul. A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1959 Les Pauls offered. Add a pair of superbly accurate Custom Bucker pickups, re-created from precise study and measurement of original PAFs, and that legendary Burst tone is all there. You simply can't get closer to the real thing... than the real thing.
The most desirable Les Paul ever captured with unprecedented accuracy for the 2015/16 True Historic Series, with wet-sanded nitro finish, double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, rolled binding and more.
