The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Standard is considered by many to be the pinnacle of Gibson's mid-century solid body electric guitars. At first a commercial failure, the'59 was adopted by some the world's greatest players like Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and countless others years after it was discontinued by Gibson. Today, one of the less than 700 originals built commands hundreds of thousands of dollars.The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is as close as you can come to owning an original 1959 Les Paul. The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom features replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. True Historic Plastics: Based on Lab & Engineering Analysis of Original Parts. Double-Carved Top: Authentic vintage dish profile.
Double-Carved Neck: Hand sanded for ideal playability and accurate profile. "Broken" Peghead Edges: Soft, Original Vintage Lines Like Originals. Thinner Peghead Veneer: A Testament to Obsession with Detail. Thinner True Historic Wet-Sanded Finish: Time and Labor Intensive, But Oh So Authentic. Hide Glue Top Construction: An Original 50's Craft Specification.
Rolled Fingerbaord Binding: Exceptional Palyability You Have to Feel to Believe. It has just been deep cleaned and detailed. The frets were dressed/polished and the fingerboard was cleaned. (Unfinished Rosewood and Ebony boards get treated with the magical Fret Doctor- a proprietary oil that is the best on the market) It was professionally set up and has brand new strings, the action was adjusted and it plays excellent. All the electronics work as they should.
