An accurate reproduction of the original 1959 Les Paul with a Dirty Lemon finish.

This limited run of the Gibson Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue features raw materials hand selected by the experts at Private Reserve Guitar. The figured maple top, and mahogany body and neck blanks were selected based on visual beauty, grain structure, density, and potential tonal quality. This very small quantity of very special 59 Les Paul's includes a TonePros bridge and tailpiece hardware with deep studs. Also featured are the specially designed Gibson humbucker pickups, based upon the original from 1957, that offer magical magnet/winding combinations for transparent and "live" tonality.

    Comments about Gibson Custom Dave Carpenter Handpicked 1959 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar:

    This guitar must of received more attention than usual. At just under 8 lbs. the hand selected tone-woods are the most resonant I have ever experienced in a Les Paul. The tone and feel are remarkable.
