If you've dreamed of owning a REAL 1959 Les Paul Standard Burst, then this one can be yours at nowhere near the price! Like everyone else that owns one of our TIME MACHINE Les Paul Aged Creations, you will be simply amazed and gob smacked by what a REAL Les Paul can sound like its absolutely game changing! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN PART OF THE ACTUAL LES PAUL LEGACY..Every single part, piece, widget, screw, and molecule has been meticulously aged, relicd, antiqued, and worn down EVERYTHING! We do this not just for atheistic reasons (although it does all look mighty cool), but to make the entire guitar open up, resonate, vibrate, and sing. No razor blade checking here baby its all REAL actual hot/cold weather checking and spider cracking that releases this vintage monster from its shell. The wood of the guitar comes alive, and our Doyle Coils PAF Humbucker pickups let you hear the very essence of the structure of the guitar itself thats why old, played down, vintage Les Paul guitars sound so damn amazing, and why this one does too!
Its just like a REAL Played Vintage 59 Burst without the half million dollar price tag! He next time you look at an Aged or Relic'd Les Paul take a really good look. Have you ever seen or played first-hand what a real late 50s Model Les Paul Standard actually looks like when its been played for almost 60 years? We have more times than we could possibly count over the last 5 or 6 decades.When you see a factory aged Les Paul, ever notice how generally the only thing that seems to get aged is the top, and perhaps ever so slightly the nickel hardware? Now compare that to a Real Vintage late 50's Les Paul Standard that has been played its whole life a keen eye will quickly notice all the outrageous shortcomings of these so called aged guitars.
When Tom Doyle and his team Vintage Age and Relic a Les Paul guitar, the ENTIRE guitar gets complete attention. Think about it for a moment how could an almost 60 year old guitar have a weather checked top but then have brand new shiny volume and tone knobs with no greening, perfectly clean finger indicators with no rust? How could the top be so old, but the hardware looks so clean and new? Why are the tuning keys brand new and not discolored, and the nickel housing not patinad and rusted? How can the pearloid fret markers not be discolored?
And for Gods sake, how can all the plastics be fresh and clean, and crisp right from the factory? We could go on and on So again, take a really good look at these supposedly aged or relic'd (and very expensive) Les Paul guitars!
Rather questionable in our humble opinion. So how and why do we know all of this? Well if you havent heard of Tom Doyle, then please go Google him well wait. Tom Doyle and Les Paul in the Lab 1964. You see, Tom Doyle was Les Pauls personal guitar builder, repairman, restorer, soundman & engineer, co-inventor, fixer, and all around right hand man for over 45 years.
Tom knows more about the Les Paul guitar than any other single human being on the planet and thats putting it mildly. Tom was side by side with Les, in the trenches since the early 60s working tirelessly and was dedicated to The Master his entire life.After Les would destroy a beautiful guitar in the quest for this sound or that, he would summarily bring it to Tom Doyle to fix, repair, restore, and even make it better than it was before Les applied his handy work. By the late 60s and early 70s, the word got out that Tom Doyle was doing amazing things with Mr. Les Paul and the guitar legends came running. Guys like Jimmy Page, Rick Derringer, Paul McCartney, Chet Atkins,, and all of the jazz guys like Bucky Pizzarelli, Al Dimeola soon had Tom building, modding, and/or repairing their guitars too.
Then in the 80s Tom was building and working on guitars for the likes of George Benson, Tommy James, Sting, Muddy Waters and the list goes on and on. Tom became known worldwide as The Luthier to the Stars. Not bad work, if you can get it! So why the history lesson?We want you to know what you are looking at here. Tom and his team have completely stripped this guitar down to its core. Every single part and piece has been painstakingly pored over, aged, relicd, antiqued, patinad, and fussed over and rebuilt. Then even more importantly, the entire guitar has been elevated to a whole new level with Tom Doyles own Doyle Coils TRU-CLONES PAF Humbuckers, our Holy Grail'59 Les Paul Harness w/Real Bumblebee PIO Caps - New pots, caps, wires, switch, jack the whole 9 yards. Even the Lifton Case has been turned into a vintage and relicd object of art no stone left unturned. In short, this Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop True Historic 1959 Reissue is a Masterpiece Virtually indistinguishable from the Real Deal 1959 Les Paul Standard Burst, and we even dare say that it sounds better! The guitar has all of the mojo, prestige, vintage charm, old-school feel & playability of a Real Burst, and of course that wow factor of those famous artist played late 50's Bursts youve drooled over all of your life But without that six figure price tag.
Are there other guys out there aging and relicing Les Paul guitar? Sure but how many of them were Les Pauls personal guitar builder and constant companion for all things music for over 45 years? Tom Doyle is nothing less than a walking-talking encyclopedia of the legacy of our friend and legend, Mr. Les Paul and the guitar that famously bears his name.This is an opportunity to put your hands on an amazing Historic Aged Les Paul Relic straight from The Source it really doesnt get any better than this! O ne of the first things we do is strip the guitar all the way down to nothing but a body and a neck and we get rid of over 2/3rds of the glossy nitro finish. This lets the guitar breathe. This is a major component of why old vintage guitars sound so woody and have that live and earthy, sweet tone. While tons of nitrocellulose lacquer gives a Les Paul its fish bowl glossy and shiny finish, it does the guitar no favors when it comes to capturing that vintage late 50's tone were all chasing. Getting rid of a majority of the massive amount of lacquer allows the guitar to vibrate, resonate, and ring in a way only 50 and 60 year old Les Pauls, that have been played and played over decades, can achieve. Then we painstakingly age, wear, breakdown, and antique every single part, piece, component, nut, bolt, and screw. Everything on the guitar gets aged just as an almost 60 year old guitar would get aged by time, use, wear, smoke, weather, sweat, bumps, and bruises and just plain being played and played. Thats what these beautiful guitars were made for to be played! Ext the guitars finish gets weather checked, just as it would over time. It gets faded, scratched, hit, cracked, popped, and generally molested just like a gigged and heavily used guitar would be. Not just willy-nilly and indiscriminately but with great care.
We take great pains to recreate the natural wear patterns of actual decades of use by real guitar players in real live player situations weve studied this at great lengths. After all weve been playing guitar ourselves our whole lives, and building guitars for the Greats for over 50 years.Every little detail is given the utmost attention nothing left to chance, and we use every part of our knowledge as professional luthiers to achieve a completely realistic 59 Les Paul. The result is nothing less than spectacular! These pickups were the last invention Les was working on to improve the sound of the Les Paul guitar. As if that werent enough, we rewire the whole guitar with our 59 Holy Grail Harness 550K high audio taper pots, and REAL paper-in-oil vintage correct.
