The '59 Standard Les Paul from Gibson Custom delivers the tone, looks and feel of the original ’59, the first of the Gibson’s now infamous Sunburst models. It features hand-crafted beauty, authentic vintage Gibson tone and historic appointments plus historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and the renown sound transference that comes with its long neck tenon.
