The Gibson guitars 2020 line up features 3 different 1960 Les Paul Standard guitars.

You have versions 1, 2 and 3 of the Gibson "Burst" History to choose from.

The team at Gibson have painstakingly recreated 3 versions of a 1960 Les Paul Standard.

The Les Paul models in the first part of 1960 (V1) had 1959 style necks, the middle third of 1960 (V2) had thinner neck profiles adding extra comfort, slightly different knobs and brighter colours. The Les Paul guitars created in the final third (V3) saw even thinner neck profiles that players still enjoy today.

You can choose from V1 in Deep Cherry Sunburst or Antiquity Burst with an Authentic '59 Medium C-Shape.

Alternatively, the V2 with Authentic '60 Slim C-Shape neck is available in Tomato Soup Burst or Orange Lemon Fade whilst the V3 models feature an authentic '60 Skinny C-Shape and come in Wide Tomato Burst or Washed Bourbon Burst.

Gibson Les Paul Special Tribute with Humbucker & P-90 Models

The brand new Gibson Les Paul Special Tribute brings back a classic design, but adds a little extra to keep up with the requirements of the modern musician.
