The Gibson Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitars ever put into production, with such a rich history and timeless appeal, the bar has been set pretty high. Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard is a guitar that builds on over 60 years of innovation and development and pushes ever further forward.
With the traditional Mahogany body, this Les Paul benefits from a crisp Flame Maple top for the ultimate tonewood partnership. Rich and super resonant it offers premium tone and timeless aesthetics. The VOS Vintage Lemon Fade finish offers a real premium finish that allows the wood to breathe and the natural tone to sing through. The VOS finish gives the appearance of a well-cared for guitar, no ageing here just some mild patina and hardware fade. With the same hide glue process as a True Historic, this Les Paul is a real vintage tone machine.
The Mahogany neck is topped with a lush Indian Rosewood fingerboard, with classic Gibson Cellulose Trapezoid inlays this guitar looks every bit the real deal. With a '59 neck shape it's comfortable and perfectly balanced, it's classic Les Paul performance.
The defining feature of the Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul is the custom wound Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are the most historically accurate PAF clone on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality, it's as close as you can get to the classic Les Paul tone.
With a reissue brown style case, it's perfect for collectors and player alike, this Gibson Custom Les Paul is testament to the timeless design crafted by Les Paul all those years ago.
