New 2015 True Historic Specs deliver unprecedented levels of authenticity. Gibson Custom has re-tooled, retrained and redesigned nearly every element of the process in constructing the 2015 True Historic range to achieve a fanatic level of accuracy to the original guitars.
The Gibson True Historic 1960 Les Paul Vintage Cherry Sunburst is a stunningly accurate '60 Burst!
1960 was the last year of the original Les Paul sunbursts - back then, not a popular guitar! Over the years, though, these guitars became synonymous with rock'n'roll, thanks to players such as Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and others. The last of the original Bursts, the Gibson 1960 Les Paul has been re-created like never before with 2015 True Historic specs, including precisely rendered neck profiles and dish carves, wet-sanded nitro finish, and PAF-style pickups.
A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1960 Les Pauls offered.
Meanwhile, Gibson's acclaimed new PAF-style Custom Bucker pickups nail every ounce of Burst-certified tone. You simply can't get closer to the real thing... than the real thing.
