Thanks to Gibson Custom and Joe Perry, you can now own the closest possible thing to Joe™s most prized guitar, in the form of one of a very limited run of replicas based on exclusive access to the original. The Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul was created from painstaking examination and measurement of the original guitar, and delivers the full tone, feel, and look of this highly prized ™Burst. It is available now in a limited run of 150 finished in Gibson™s VOS process.

Gibson Custom has gone to great lengths with the Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul to create a guitar that possesses the very spirit of the original. The recreation starts with a solid, one-piece premium lightweight mahogany body married to a hand-selected maple top. The guitar is finished in an exclusive Faded Tobacco Burst with Historic œVintage aniline red and dark walnut dye on the back, sides, and back of the neck, and display a gently-aged patina in the finish and hardware.

The neck is carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany and profiled to a full and sweetly rounded ™59 shape derived from precise measurement of Joe™s own guitar, then topped with a one-piece rosewood fingerboard inlaid with period-correct cellulose trapezoids. A set of Kluson Deluxe tuners, a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and ABR-1 bridge complete a period-correct hardware complement, while vintage cream binding, gold Top Hat knobs, and a cream plastic pickguard enhance the guitar™s vintage looks.

The Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul sounds every bit as phenomenal as it looks and feels, thanks to a pair of Custombucker humbucking pickups designed to closely match the original PAFs in Joe™s guitar. Each is made with an Alnico 3 magnet and wound with accurate plain-enamel 42 AWG plain-enamel wire to specs determine by close measurement of the original pickups, with a neck pickup that reads around 8k ohms and bridge pickup that™s slightly hotter at 8.5k ohms for plenty of authentic growl. Controls include the traditional independent volume and tones, with œbumble bee tone caps on the latter, and a three-way Switchcraft axial toggle selector. Put it all together, and it™s like making this well-traveled, rock-history-making Les Paul your very own.

Each guitar includes a Brown Custom Shop hardshell case, along with Certificate of Authenticity, owner™s manual and adjustment literature.

A stunning recreation of a legendary Les Paul.
