        One of the most sought-after electric guitars is back in every detail.

        While all 1958-’60 Les Pauls are among the most sought-after electric guitars ever made, the ’59 Burst is often considered among aficionados to be the crème de la crème of the range. They are also exceedingly rare, with only 635 guitars shipped that year. With sales of the Les Paul declining every year since 1953, the year after its release, Gibson decided in 1958 to update the look of the model with an elegant Cherry Sunburst finish. Guitars from that first year of the Burst’s production often had relatively plain maple tops, but through the course of 1959, Gibson’s craftsmen built Les Pauls with tops that displayed more and more highly-figured grains, making these among the most collectible of the breed today.

        The 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue from Gibson Custom accurately recreates the original hallowed ’59 Burst in every detail, and presents it in a beautiful VOS finish.

        Every guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity, an owner’s manual and adjustment literature.

        • Classic '50s style, feel and sound
        • Re-engineered pickups for authentic tone
        • Comfortable '50s neck profile
        • Gorgeous VOS finish

        It doesn't get any better than this. Order today.

          Comments about Gibson Custom 1959 Reissue Les Paul VOS Electric Guitar:

          Got this Gibson 1959 Les Paul Reissue VOS online at a comparably good price, and had it shipped to Las Vegas. The customer support guy who made the sale on the phone was very helpful, and the guitar was stringed and set-up exactly with what I had requested, plus a couple more string sets.

          This guitar looks stunning, the VOS finish is superb, I love the non-glossy thing. It plays very easy and sounds amazing, with many nuances and great dynamics, as one expects from a PAF replica.

          Tuning stability is great, no issues there.

          If you're reading this, you probably know that there is no essential difference between this and and an LP Standard, except for increased attention to detail and relatively faithful reproducion of the most desirable Les Paul there is. It is the same thing, only better. :)

          I am happy with my purchase, and I think the guitar is all that one can expect.
