When goldtop sales began to decline, Gibson responded in 1958 with a transparent cherry sunburst finish to show off the Les Paul's beautiful maple top. Thus was born the Standard, a guitar that the market has deemed the most desirable in history. The only change for the '59 version was wider, fatter frets for cleaner fretting and easier bends. This Gibson Custom Shop 59 Les Paul, with carved plain maple top, solid mahogany back, burstbuckers, thin toggle washer and jack plate, nickel hardware, aluminum stopbar, early '50s rounded neck with long tenon, CTS pots, and bumblebee caps, is indistinguishable from the real McCoy if you could step back in time and pick one up new.
