In 1959, the Les Paul Standard made a change to wider, fatter jumbo frets which made it a more facile guitar. The significance of this change wouldn't be felt until the late '60s when Clapton, Bloomfield, Peter Green, and other emerging guitarists discovered its warm, thick BurstBucker voice and fast, smooth and easy-playing neck. Then the Les Paul began its ascent toward ultimate icon status.
Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case and a certificate of authenticity.

Comments about Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue VOS Electric Guitar:
AWESOME '59 VOS Les Paul slow tea fade. 0rdered through Guitarcenter store to be shipped from their Kansas City GC platinum warehouse. Received in two days delivered to my house. Guitar of a lifetime. Awesome action, tone, colors. I brought it in to Guitarcenter to have the tech install the pick guard and check the intonation, etc. He didn't want to quit playing it! have an Epiphone black Les Paul, but I have always wanted the real deal. No comparison! Well worth the investment. Love it!
