Celebrate Southern Rock and support musicians in need

Gibson's Les Paul was at the forefront of the Southern Rock movement of the late '60s and early '70s. Almost every band had at least one Les Paul in the band and sometimes more. From the Allman Brothers to Charlie Daniels to Skynyrd and ZZ Top, this dual-humbucking axe was the guitar of choice. Besides being a premium-made 1959 Les Paul reissue, the Gibson Foundation will donate a portion of the proceeds from each Gibson Custom Shop Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged sale to benefit members of the music community through the Music Health Alliance. You're not only purchasing an amazing guitar that pays tribute to Southern Rock, you're also supporting musicians in need. This extremely limited-edition guitar is signed by the music legends and Southern Rock Tribute program ambassadors - Charlie Daniels, Jimmy Hall, Gary Rossington, Dickey Betts, and vintage-guitar expert Ronny Proler

Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

The Gibson Custom Shop Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged includes new appointments to give it even more authenticity and vintage vibe. The mahogany neck is 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 its 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 Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged one of the most accurate vintage reproduction guitars ever.

Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged'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 Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul Aged sports a pair of Gibson's Custom Bucker humbuckers. The Custom Bucker is one of the most historically-accurate PAF copies we've ever heard at Sweetwater. These 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 the Custom Bucker pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul!
