A Historic Les Paul, Hand-aged by Tom Murphy

The Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue solidbody electric guitar comes as close as possible to recreating the legendary '59 model Les Paul, with a naturally-aged appearance courtesy of Tom Murphy. Every detail is as close to spot-on as possible, down to the hand-carved maple top, non-weight-relieved mahogany body, and holly-head veneer headstock. A pair of Gibson's legendary Burstbucker pickups also gives 1959 Les Paul Reissue the sound of classic PAF humbuckers. With iconic tone and the carefully-aged appearance of a road-worn classic, no guitarist can deny the appeal of the Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Reissue.

Aged by Tom Murphy

The road-worn look of this 1959 Les Paul Reissue was applied with love by Tom Murphy. As a world-renowned leader in guitar aging, Tom Murphy perfected his aging process as a way to revive old instruments without making them look unnatural. In Tom's words, the aging process lets players appreciate the feel of a classic collector's instrument, without spending a fortune on a vintage instrument.

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 1959 Les Paul Reissue 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's vintage-style tulip 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 up to the original, you'd be more than hard pressed to tell them apart.

Burstbucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the 1959 Les Paul Reissue'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 1959 Les Paul Reissue sports a pair of Gibson's Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers with historically unmatched bobbin windings. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a '59 Les Paul Standard!
