We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

Year upon year, the master luthiers at Gibson Custom Shop have managed to tweak and improve the performance and playability of the iconic 50s Les Pauls. This 1959 re-issue utilises VOS (Vintage Original Spec) appointments and vintage building techniques. Easily one of the most visually stunning Les Pauls ever!

Historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and PAF tone

The maple top and Washed Cherry finish on the 1959 model really has to be seen to be appreciated. Hand picked maple and mahogany, combined with new building techniques this year allowed Gibson to really show off the flame top. While the 1959 Les Paul Standard retained the classic ingredients that made the '58 so revered, refinements to the slimmer neck profile and heel have made this one of the sweetest-playing guitars ever made.

This guitar also benefits from Gibson Custom' 20th Anniversary Specifications, newly adopted for 2013. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye offered in VOS and Gloss.

Gibson Custom' new Custom Bucker accurately recreates the original PAFs of the late 50s, using Alnico III magnets and unequal turns of 42 AWG wire in each coil for that characteristic PAF bite. These pickups clean up beautifully at the guitar' volume controls, while Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing œwoman tone when you roll back the tone controls.

To top it all off, the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson' state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor.
