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. The Gibson Custom '59 Les Paul in Green Lemon is a guitar that builds on over 60 years of innovation and development and pushes ever further forward.
With a Mahogany body, this Les Paul benefits from a hand-picked figured Maple top for the ultimate tonewood partnership. Rich and super resonant it offers premium tone and timeless aesthetics, while the Paul Kossoff style Green Lemon looks a million dollars and really allows the wood to breathe and the natural tone to sing through.
The Mahogany neck is topped with a crisp Rosewood fingerboard with classic Gibson Trapezoid inlays, this guitar looks every bit the real deal. With a 24.75" scale length and medium jumbo frets, it retains that classic Les Paul feel.
The defining feature of the Gibson Custom '59 Les Paul is the custom wound Gibson Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are some of the most historically accurate PAF clones on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality; it's as close as you can get to the classic Les Paul tone.
This guitar was handpicked by John from the Gibson Custom Shop back in 2013, it has been well looked after since and is now available as a used guitar. It's in great shape with only very minor superficial surface scratches to note, its a great example of Gibson Custom quality.
