Gibson 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS - Cherry Teaburst


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


The 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard is considered to be the "Holy Grail" of Les Pauls; it's one of the most sought-after electric guitars of all time. This high demand has driven prices for a true vintage '59 through the roof, well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thankfully, it's now easier than ever to own the closest thing possible to a true '59, with the absolutely incredible Gibson Custom Shop 60th Anniversary '59 Les Paul Standard. Every - and we mean every - detail of an original '59 has been painstakingly recreated to deliver the looks, sound, and feel of a vintage 1959 Les Paul. This R9 is bursting with vintage character. Start with the body: a lightweight mahogany with a figured, two-piece maple top, in the eye-catching Cherry Teaburst finish. Its hide-glued extended neck tenon provides a remarkable amount of sustain, and perfectly fuses the body and neck. Its bound solid rosewood fingerboard and medium jumbo frets feel great to play along with an authentic '59 "Medium C" neck shape. Plus, Kluson Deluxe tuners, an original-spec non-tubed truss rod, and cellulose trapezoid inlays further its vintage authenticity. And the tone - the tone! We can't say enough about this guitar's Custom Bucker pickups. They are designed to faithfully recreate the much-desired '59 tone, with vintage CTS pots and Bumblebee capacitors that help give it that unmistakable vintage character. From top to bottom, this Custom Shop 60th Anniversary reissue faithfully executes every aspect of the original’s design, from tone, to in-hand feel and gorgeous vintage aesthetics.
