Overview

The '59 Gibson Les Paul Standard is nothing if not a pure icon of some of the world's great guitarists across multiple genres. It was one of the key elements in defining the sound of late 20th-century popular music and a favored tool of many of the most revered artists in rock history This very special 60th Anniversary Standard is a painstaking replica of that hallowed original. Gibson went as far as carefully laser scanning original instruments and analyzing, then recreating chemical formulas for period plastics and other materials to make sure that, without a time machine, this is as close as you can ever come to buying a brand new '59. Includes deluxe lacquered hard case.
