OVERVIEW

A beautiful recreation of a year that marked the debut of the SlimTaper neck.

To ensure these instruments were spectacular the PRG team flew to the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, TN to hand-select highly figured maple tops, and then worked closely with the Gibson Custom team to determine a color that would best reveal the depth of figuring and best represent the look of a real 1960 Sunburst Les Paul. We arrived at the finish seen on Page 138 of the book "Beauty of the Burst" (a definitive guide to original Les Paul "Bursts"). We then outfitted this guitar with "Custom Bucker Plus" pickups, custom-wound to deliver great clarity with just a tad more output and midrange that'll cut through a mix or sit beautifully on it's own. A light-weight mahogany back ensures this guitar resonates and sings the way a great Burst should.
