From Our Research Team:
The Holy Grail of Guitars: The 1959 Les Paul Standard!Gibson's Custom, Art, Historic division provides an atmosphere for a select group of inspired artisans to carry on Gibson's century-old tradition of creating exquisite, investment quality instruments that represent the highest standards of imaginative design and masterful craftsmanship.
The only major change to the Les Paul Standard in 1959 was the addition of wider, fatter, "jumbo" frets, which facilitated more dramatic bends. the real force of the change was not felt until the late 1960s when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the '59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the '59 Les Paul as the Holy Grail of guitars in the minds of professionals, collectors and weekend warriors.

by Robert Schlotter from Indiana, USAI bought my 59' Reissue back in 2005 before the VOS guitars came out. This guitar is absolutely stunning right out of the box. The craftmanship is impeccable. It plays like a dream, easy to play the... read more [+] fat 50's neck. It truly is the "Holy Grail" of electric guitars. I have other custom shop Les Pauls and they are great guitars, but this one is a piece of working art. I will never sell or trade this guitar. The flame on this particular guitar is absolutely breath taking, deep figured maple top on this one. I believe it would rival other custom shop flame tops, and possibly some original 59's also. It is an expensive guitar, but it is worth every dollar spent on this masterpiece. It is heirloom quality and a great investment piece also. You can NOT go wrong with this guitar. I would HIGHLY receommend anyone looking for a awesome guitar as well as a great investment, this is the guitar for you!!! close [-]
