I see you for the first time in months. We hang out all day, going to get coffee and walk around thrift shops & Halloween stores. We get caught in a storm on our way into see local music, giggling and running towards the door. We fall into each others arms and slowly kiss in the doorway. I smile like I havent in months. I feel things I forgot I could feel. Tears in my eyes. I’m happy.
This is it folks! The Holy Grail of electric guitars! The Gibson Custom Shop has really hit one out of the park with this stunning reissue, coming in at 4.109kg.
Stunning flame maple top, that is mesmerising!
This guitar sounds great unplugged and it really steals the show when it is plugged into a valve amplifier and cranked!
There is good reason why Gibson Les Paul Standard’s are one, if the the most, desirable electric guitars on the planet.
With originals becoming increasingly rare and expensive, do yourself a favour and grab the next best thing!
Featuring Gibson Custom’s 20th Anniversary Specifications, newly adopted for 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.
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 1959 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.
Designed by Angus Marshall, built by the Fender Custom Shop, Blonde on 2 piece off set ash body (coming in at 3.09kg!), Twisted Tele pick ups, 51 Nocaster neck shape, rosewood fretboard with 6105 frets and 9.5" radius, contoured access heel, Sperzel locking tuners, bone nut, FCS RSD low profile 3 saddle bridge, custom serial number & matching blonde case.
A modern twist on an all time classic, fine tuned for the more modern style player with a nod to the past.
This Tele rocks and can handle anything you throw out at it! An honest guitar with nothing to hide behind (like all Tele’s) this guitar will constantly reward and surprise you with classic Fender tone!
