The 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue retains the solid mahogany body and carved maple top that laid down the Les Paul's legendary sonic signature, along with its quarter-sawn mahogany neck with long-tenon neck joint. In addition to these details, the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue also benefits from Gibson Custom's 20th Anniversary specifications, newly adopted in 2013. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct aniline dye for the guitar's back and sides, all beneath Gibson Custom's proprietary VOS process, which yields a gently worn look and feel.
Gibson Custom's new Custom Bucker accurately recreates the original PAFs of the late '50s, using Alnico III magnets and unequal turns of 42 AWG wire in each coil for that characteristic PAF "bite." These pickups clean up beautifully at the guitar's volume controls, while Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing "woman tone" when you roll back the tone controls. To top it all off, the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson's state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor.
Every guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity, owner's manual, adjustment literature and coverage by Gibson Custom's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
