A precise re-creation of a very special Les Paul

The Collector's Choice #4 1959 Les Paul "Sandy" is based on a classic instrument that eventually found its way into the hands of collector Tom Witrock. Built in 1959, "Sandy" features the chunkier '59 profile that Les Paul enthusiasts have come to know and love. The precise neck carve, top carve, and wear patterns have been accurately reproduced in this collectible beauty to give you the feel and playability of a true vintage instrument.

BurstBucker pickups give you the sound of yesterday

Gibson Custom analyzed the sound of the original PAF humbucking pickups on "Sandy" and re-created that vibe with BurstBucker 3 and BurstBucker 1 humbuckers. These exposed-coil pickups use period-correct wire and a precise number of turns to create the tone we all know and love. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of these pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul!

Gibson Custom Shop quality and craftsmanship

Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the Collector's Choice #4 1959 Les Paul "Sandy". Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which precisely re-created the feel and performance of the original "Sandy". The fretboard and nut offer incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches, like the exposed zebra pickups and the accurately-aged hardware remain true to the original 1959 Les Paul Standard that "Sandy" pays homage to.
