This 50th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Sunburst Reissue Electric Guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop offers you an exact duplicate of the 1959 carved top guitar with a glorious Golden Orange Teaburst nitrocellulose finish. You get all the benefits of a new guitar, with all the mojo of a vintage Les Paul. Hurry if you want one cause this limited edition guitar won't be around forever.
The only major change to the Les Paul "Sunburst" in 1959 was the addition of wider, fatter jumbo frets which facilitated more dramatic bends. The real force of this change was not felt until the late 1960s when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, and Peter Green discovered the fat, warm voice of the '59 Les Paul, which they began calling the "Sunburst." This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the 1959 Les Paul Sunburst as the quintessential guitar in the minds of guitarists and collectors everywhere.
Using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and modern technology, the luthiers of the Gibson Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define stunning, vintage looks, flawless playability, and incredible tone. Solid mahogany back, historically accurate long neck tenon for superior strength and sustain, period correct neck profiles, hardware and electronics, and 100% nitrocellulose lacquer are all part of this special Gibson Custom Shop 50th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul guitar.
