Return of A Legend

The Gibson Les Paul is an icon of popular culture, synonymous with rock music and as famous as many of the legendary guitarists that have performed with it.

In particular, the 1959 Les Paul Standard commands an amazing level of respect and admiration.

While not performing as well as expected upon its initial release with only 650 being made, it went on to become a legend.

Not incredibly successful on its initial release only 650 were made. In 1964, however, none other than Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones began to wield this now legendary axe.

Richards was soon followed by Mike Bloomfield who picked up a 1959 Les Paul Standard of his own.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard went on to become the "standard" electric guitar for rock music being played by such legendary guitarists as Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry and many, many more.

Now, the Gibson Custom Shop give you the rare opportunity to own one yourself with this amazing 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard.
