Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Murphy Lab Light Aged Electric Guitar, Cherry Tea Burst
Welcome in the holy grail of guitars in your life — the absolutely amazing Custom Shop Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard electric guitar is not just a tribute to the priceless original models; it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail.
This guitar represents the culmination of decades of work by Gibson Custom Shop's expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of its fans. It features a stunning two-piece figured maple top on a one-piece lightweight mahogany solidbody, complete with a 1-ply royalite binding and a tasteful Murphy Lab light aged finish treatment for a worn-in look and feel. The solid mahogany neck is smooth and comfortable to play, boasting an authentic '59 medium C-profile and home to a perfect Indian rosewood fingerboard with twenty-two authentic medium-jumbo frets.
Producing a vintage tonality that will bring the power of the late fifties back into your music, the 1959 Les Paul Standard is equipped with a pair of Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted pickups, controlled by two volume and two tone controls, paper-in-oil capacitors and a three-way toggle switch. Paired with the lightly aged hardware and the period-correct lightweight aluminum stop bar, this guitar has all the unique character, vibe and feel of an original era example from the Gibson Golden Era.
The very definition of cool, the Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard is the best representation of its kind since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago, and it's available now at Replay Guitar Exchange!
