The Gibson Custom Shop relives past glories.
Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1959 Les Paul Reissue Bourbon Burst is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. In 1959, the Les Paul Standard made a change to wider, fatter jumbo frets which made it a more facile guitar. The significance of this change wouldn't be felt until the late '60s when Clapton, Bloomfield, Peter Green, and other emerging guitarists discovered its warm, thick BurstBucker voice and fast, smooth and easy-playing neck. Then the Les Paul began its ascent toward ultimate icon status. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar.
