Overview

While all 1958-60 Les Pauls are among the most sought-after electric guitars ever made, the 59 Burst is often considered among aficionados to be the cr¨me de la cr¨me of the range. They are also exceedingly rare, with only 635 guitars shipped that year. With sales of the Les Paul declining every year since 1953, the year after its release, Gibson decided in 1958 to update the look of the model with an elegant Cherry Sunburst finish. Guitars from that first year of the Bursts production often had relatively plain maple tops, but through the course of 1959, Gibsons craftsmen built Les Pauls with tops that displayed more and more highly-figured grains, making these among the most collectible of the breed today.

The 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue from Gibson Custom accurately recreates the original hallowed 59 Burst in every detail, and presents it in a beautiful VOS finish.

Every guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity, an owners manual and adjustment literature.
