Comments about Gibson Custom True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar:
Gibson Custom Shop has the right stuff. This is one of the finest non-vintage Les Pauls I've played. Everything about it - feel, weight, action, playability, tone, sustain, appearance - is superb. Not inexpensive, but what price do you put on an instrument that makes you play better?
