Gibson's Most Accurate '59 Reissue Gloss to Date

Bring a classic into your home with the Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Les Paul Reissue, Gibson has gone back to the drawing board to create the most accurate Les Pauls to date. Every detail is as close to spot-on as possible, down to the hand-carved maple top and non-weight-relieved mahogany body. This axe features an updated antique finish, classic hardware, hide-glued neck, new truss rod and tuner designs, and vintage-style trapezoid fretboard inlays. No guitarist can deny the appeal of the Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss.

Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

  • Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe
  • CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

Gibson's latest Custom Shop VOS guitars include new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks are now attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. New Kluson Green Key Tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe

To revive the very essence of the original '59 Les Paul guitar, Gibson Custom spared no expense, painstakingly re-creating each part of the 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss piece by piece. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, hand-carved and bookmatched maple top, and holly-head veneer headstock are only the beginning. The accuracy of the details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss's Kluson Green Key tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50s-style long neck tenon joint. If you hold the Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss up to the original, you'd be more than hard pressed to tell them apart.

CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss'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 '59 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Reissue Gloss sports a pair of Gibson's CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker 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 '59 Les Paul!
