Created after an iconic Les Paul

The Gibson Custom Collector's Choice #16 Ed King 1959 Les Paul is a guitar in remarkable condition. The body and finish show minor wear and fading, but it still retains the original frets and pickups, including a zebra PAF in the neck. This '59 Les Paul went through extensive hands-on analysis to ensure that every aspect is accurate, down to the smallest detail. Collector's Choice #16 surpasses Gibson Custom's famed Reissue program with painstaking exactness from neck profile to aged hardware to pickup analysis.

Classic PAF sound with a pair of Gibson humbuckers

Gibson Custom analyzed the sound of the original PAF humbucking pickups and re-created that vibe with CustomBucker and BUrstbucker humbuckers. These pickups use period-correct wire and a precise number of turns to create the tone we all know and love. Collector's Choice #16 sports a BurstBucker 3 in the neck position and a CustomBucker in the bridge.You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of the CustomBucker pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul!

And little touches, like the plain maple top and the accurately-aged hardware remain true to the original 1959 Les Paul Standard that Collector's Choice #16 pays homage to.
