Detailed reissue of the guitar that changed the sound of rock and blues.

The Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar has an AA flamed maple top - exactly the kind of wood that went on the vintage Les Pauls in '59. BurstBucker 1 and 2 pickups are precision re-creations of original "Patent Applied For" pickups, right down to the mismatched windings. Original bumblebee capacitors, long-tenon 1959 rounded neck profile, CTS pots, original aluminum stopbar, and tons of other details make it look, sound, and play identically to the original. Mahogany back and neck with rosewood fretboard complete this Les Paul reissue.

Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

  • God of Guitars!

    As reviewed by LedZepRulz245 on 9/22/2006

    This is the greatest guitar ever made by Gibson. It has the fastest action and the craziest sound from those pickups. Gibson really has outdone themselves with this beast. It is the same one that Jimmy Page used with Zeppelin. It may be heavy and a bit pricey but this guitar is amazing. I have never played something so awesome. If you come up with the money dont hesitate to buy this. You wont regret anything.

  • The Gibson "Rembrandt\

    As reviewed by Nsureit on 9/25/2006

    I just upgraded from the Les Paul 60's Classic Standard to this magnificent instrument. I am not a very fine player by any means, but I now own the axe that can get me there. The wood, hardware and electronics all meld into a synthesis of sound and art. Plug into a Marshall 1974x or JCM800 head and you've created a velvet hammer. The action impresses me most. There is no peer in this price range.

  • I don't want to play anything else!

    As reviewed by DREW CAIN on 1/9/2013

    I bought the 2011 reissue in Iced Tea VOS, and to be honest didn't expect to be this in love. I've got 5 other high-end guitars that sit and look pretty while this one gets all the attention. From classic uncompromising tone and sustain to the brilliant sound of the BurstBuckers, this guitar is everything it's cracked up to be and more. I'd played the thinner '60's necks and had reservations about the slightly chunkier neck, but adjusted quickly and wouldn't trade it. A bargain at half the price. This is the one you marry after dating all the rest, because not coming home to her every night seems unthinkable.
