The Gibson Custom Shop 1956 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar will revise your idea of how an electric guitar should feel and sound. Ted McCarty's Tune-O-Matic bridge was added to the Les Paul in 1956. That, together with individual saddles and thumb wheels to adjust the bridge height, represented a quantum leap forward in intonation, tone, and sustain. This beautifully crafted Les Paul reissue is a letter-perfect re-creation of that landmark model.
As if that weren't enough, this Limited Edition features a rare Ebony finish.
