Gibson Custom Factory Burst '59 Les Paul Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The rebirth of a legendary Les Paul
  • Historically accurate details
  • '57 Classic pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
The rebirth of a legendary Les Paul

The original '59 Les Paul Standard guitar established the Les Paul as a staple of the rock-music world. Although Gibson only shipped about 640 Les Paul Standards in 1959, by the mid '60s, their new slimmer profile neck and transparent finish (a major departure from the Goldtop) caught the attention of a whole new generation of musicians. When you pick up a Gibson Custom Factory Burst '59 Les Paul, you can imagine how Keith Richards or Eric Clapton felt, trekking through a whole new territory of undiscovered tone.

Historically accurate details

To revive the very essence of the original '59 Les Paul Standard guitar, Gibson Custom spared no expense, painstakingly recreating each part of the Factory Burst '59 Les Paul piece by piece. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, and hand-carved and bookmatched maple top, are only the beginning. The accuracy of the details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the Factory Burst '59 Les Paul's vintage-style tulip tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50-style long neck tenon joint. If you hold the Gibson Custom Factory Burst '59 Les Paul up to the original, you'd be more than hard pressed to tell them apart.

'57 Classic pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Factory Burst '59 Les Paul's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on '59 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Factory Burst '59 Les Paul sports a pair of Gibson's '57 Classic humbuckers with nickel covers over zebra coils, and the tone is epic.
