Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS Factory Burst

What We Think

In Gibson’s words they are the pinnacle of craftsmanship and this Custom Shop 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard certainly lives up to those words.

This iconic guitar has never played as well and it sorts amazing as well. If you have never played a Gibson Custom Shop then you’re in for a treat. We are lucky enough to have one of these guitars at Rimmers Music in Bolton! So get yourself down and have a go with this amazing piece of history.

The guitar has a beautiful 2-piece figured maple top and in the Green Lemon Fade it looks fantastic. The neck material is solid mahogany with a bolivian rosewood fingerboard. The shape of the neck is ’59 medium c-shape and is really comfortable to play. Gibson are using Custom Alnico III (unpotted) pickups in both the neck and bridge. The guitar also comes with a Gibson Historic Reissue hardcase in Brown.

Like I say if you’re thinking of treating yourself to something special get down to Rimmers Music in Bolton and have a go with this guitar for yourself.

Bolton Store

No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard. It wasn't a successful model when it was released (under 650 were made) but before long it was adopted by some of the world's greatest guitarists -- Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few.

The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility. ""It has a deep, powerful sound and you can use it to imitate just about anything – violin, sax, cello, even a sitar,"" says Jeff Beck.

All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted and legendary guitar on the planet. Gibson Custom Shop's 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to the priceless original models -- it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to colour-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of yearly advancements to accuracy and authenticity since Gibson Custom Shop began examining vintage Les Pauls over twenty years ago.
