Overview

It might seem laughable, even absurd, that the guitar world’s failure to appreciate the original Les Paul would lead to its deletion from the Gibson line up after 1960, but so it often goes with creations that are so far ahead of their time. Just a few years later, scores of groundbreaking artists would discover the incomparable power of this instrument, and its premature scarcity would also make it an extremely valuable guitar while the model was really still just a toddler, thus rendering it the first collectible “vintage” electric guitar.

In 1960 the Les Paul had not quite completed it's transition to the slimmer Standard model, this is the full fat version with creamy tone and endless sustain. This Version 2 does have a slightly thinner neck and nails the classic "elliptical" profile.

None embodies this “work in progress” so completely as the final issue of the line, the 1960 Les Paul Standard—or, should we say “Standards”—now brought back to life in the Custom Shop 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standards. To accurately present the variations in specifications and finish that original examples from 1960 exhibit, Gibson’s Custom Shop is creating this limited Anniversary model in three versions, each of which embodies in period-correct detail the final three steps along the journey before this hallowed electric guitar was pulled from production.

Read About It

Excellent service and products
I purchased a Bose L1 S which was demonstrated to me in the Northampton store. Jim who helped me was very professional and helpful allowing me to sing through a couple of numbers and listen to backing tracks to get a feel for the unit. They organised for the kit to be delivered to me at my office and when it didn't arrive for one reason or another made sure it was with my on the next day before 12. They went out of their way to make sure I was happy. Would totally recommend them.
