Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • True Historic appointments are more authentic than ever
  • Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe
  • Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
True Historic appointments are more authentic than ever

When you want a guitar that has all the classic tone and vibe of the original Les Pauls, then you'll truly appreciate the Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul electric guitar. The neck and fretboard are attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom also uses an original spec truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor. Kluson Green Key Tuners feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. Gibson even analyzed the vintage plastics down to the molecular level to ensure accurate reproductions. Take it from the guitar experts at Sweetwater - these features and others make the Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe

To revive the very essence of the original 1960 Les Paul Standard guitar, Gibson Custom spared no expense, painstakingly re-creating each part of the True Historic 1960 Les Paul piece-by-piece. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, double-carved maple top, and thinner finish and peghead veneer are only the beginning. The accuracy of the details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the True Historic 1960 Les Paul's vintage-style Kluson Green Key tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50-style long neck tenon joint.

Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the True Historic 1960 Les Paul's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on 1960 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the True Historic 1960 Les Paul sports a pair of Gibson's Custom Bucker humbuckers. The Custom Bucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a 1960 Les Paul!

Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Gibson's most accurate re-creation of a 1960 Les Paul Standard to date
  • Every detail meticulously re-created to give you the look, sound, and feel of a vintage 1960 model
  • Vintage non-weight-relieved mahogany body with double-carved, hand wet-sanded finish
  • 1960's style Les Paul neck profile topped with a solid Indian rosewood fretboard
  • Authentic details include vintage-style Kluson Green Key tuners, holly-head veneer headstock, and original acrylic trapezoid block inlays
  • Custom Bucker pickups for dead-on vintage PAF tone
  • Hide-glued mahogany neck with extended neck tenon for exceptional sustain and response
  • Period-correct Aniline dye body and neck
  • Hardshell case included
Get authentic vintage vibe with the Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul!

The Holy Grail of Les Pauls.

I have waited my whole life for Gibson to get it right...and FINALLY they hit the Jackpot. You are never going to get any closer to the real thing unless you have $350,000.00 and are lucky enough to find one. They NAILED IT! From the Hide Glue that holds the neck on to the winding of the PAF Humbuckers. The one Nick Lamendola sent me is Beautiful, with lots of Flame Tiger stripes and figuring on the wood. (Thanks Nick!) These 1960 Les Pauls will Scream or Whisper and the Quality of the workmanship is simply amazing. I have been playing for 50 years and, I cannot find any flaws anywhere. I've had it for three years and it just plays and sounds better every day. Thanks Sweetwater!
4.5/5
