Order before 3pm Mon-Fri for Next Day Delivery

With the Gibson 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Std V2, seen here with a classic Tomato Soup Burst finish, you get an incredible take on a guitar that heralds from the Les Paul's golden age.

A Fitting Tribute To A Classic Guitar

As a celebration of the Les Paul's early evolution, the Gibson Custom Shop artisans have recreated three incredible models based on those released throughout 1960.

In this case we have the V2 - a Les Paul Standard released during the second third of 1960, which features a slimmer neck than the original 1959 model.

Gibson 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Std V2, Tomato Soup Burst Highlights

  • Limited edition, 60's-style Les Paul Standard from the Gibson Custom Shop
  • V2 VOS (Vintage Original Spec) status ensures an incredible level of authenticity
  • Solid Mahogany back capped with a Flamed Maple top piece offers that traditional Les Paul look
  • Tomato Soup Burst finish
  • Slim Mahogany neck capped with a 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard with Trapezoid inlays
  • Two PAF-like Custombucker Alnico III pickups
  • ABR-1 bridge and stopbar tailpiece combine for pin-point intonation
  • Includes deluxe, period-accurate 5-latch hardshell case
  • Available for a limited time only

Vintage Original Spec

To achieve VOS status - as this guitar has - a Gibson guitar needs to feature as much authenticity to the model it represents as possible.

In this case the guitar features the exact same specifications as the same Les Paul Standards released towards the middle of 1960 - including the slimmer neck, not to mention the materials and glue used.

Top Notch Construction

As with the original 1960 Les Paul Standard, this 60th Anniversary Custom Shop model features a solid Mahogany back piece, and is topped with a two-piece Figured Maple cap, fixed in place with genuine hide glue.

In addition to this, there's a solid Mahogany neck carved with an authentic '60 Slim C-profile shape, and topped with a Rosewood fingerboard.

Overall the guitar delivers a playing experience that's a combination of rock-solid stability and killer tone - the hallmarks of the guitar it has been built to celebrate.

Custombucker Pickups

Over the decades many pickup makers have attempted to recreate the magical tone of the original PAF humbuckers, and many of them fall short - but not with the Gibson Custombucker!

Thanks to the Alnico III magnets in them, these pickups deliver a mellow, smooth, and rounded tone - the closest you can get to the original PAF's - and are favoured by countless professional players the world over.

Available In Limited Numbers

As stated earlier, these guitars are available in limited numbers around the world, so if it takes your fancy we recommend you place your order sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.
