Era Accurate Construction

This excellent guitar represents the culmination of decades of work but the expert team over at Gibson's Custom Shop, and is widely regarded as the best representation of the 59 Les Paul Standard ever since they began creating reissues more than 25 years ago.

Featuring a solid Mahogany body, capped with a 2-piece Figured Maple top, and a set-in Mahogany neck - all of which is fixed together with genuine hide glue for maximum tone transferrence.

The neck has been carved with an Authentic '59 Medium C-Shape profile, and is topped with a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard, with 22 Historic Medium-Jumbo frets, and Trapezoid fret markers, for an authentic late 1950s playing experience.

Custombucker Pickups

As this guitar represents the birth of a legend - the very first Les Paul to come equipped with humbuckers - Gibson have opted to use the vintage-voiced CustomBucker.

These low-output pickups come equipped with Alnico III magnets, and produce the Holy Grail of Gibson tones, with a PAF-like voice that's both rich and articulate.

Each of these pickups features independent Volume and Tone controls, allowing you to dial in those sweet spots, whilst the 3-way selector switch lets you choose the perfect voice for your situation.

The Murphy Lab Collection

Gibson's all-new Murphy Lab Collection is a showcase of premium-quality guitars, that feature Ultra Light Aged finish treatments, with lightly aged hardware.

This combination helps to simulate decades of light play wear, for a unique character, vibre, and feel, reminiscent of a genuine "Golden Era" Les Paul.
