    Product Description

    Made in partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop, Epiphone's 1959 Les Paul Standard is a stunning recreation of what is considered as the "holy grail" of vintage guitars. Featuring period-correct specs that include an aged finish, '50s-era wiring and a '59 hand-rolled neck profile, this limited edition model also boasts Gibson USA BurstBucker pickups, CTS pots, new Epiphone Deluxe tuners and a Graph Tech nut.

    With a surprising price tag to boot, the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard gives you the chance to own a mesmerising instrument based on one of the industry's most coveted electric guitars!

    Classic Construction

    The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard adheres to Gibson's signature all-Mahogany guitar construction, guaranteeing a thick and harmonically-rich sound with piano-like sustain. To give their model the truly high-end aesthetic that original '59s exert, Epiphone has adorned its body with a carved Hard Maple cap featuring a gorgeous AAA Figured Maple veneer. A limited edition metal medallion toggle switchplate enhances this instrument's beauty even further.

    Time-Honoured '59 Neck Profile

    The neck is the most essential part of any guitar when it comes to playability, which is why Epiphone has accurately replicated the acclaimed '59 rounded "C" neck  profile for its affordable tribute model. Providing optimal comfort, this vintage-like neck shape will take you back in time to the golden era of electric guitar production! An Indian Laurel fingerboard offers a smooth touch under the fingers too, with medium jumbo frets ensuring a controllable feel for string bends and vibrato.

    Gibson USA BurstBucker Pickups

    Genuine Gibson USA pickups are almost never fitted in Epiphone guitars, but the 1959 Les Paul Standard is a rare exception. Equipped with BurstBucker 2 and 3 humbuckers in its neck and bridge positions respectively, the Epiphone '59 Les Paul has a premium voice that recaptures the nostalgic tones of yesteryear.

    Following the legendary PAF design and featuring unpolished Alnico II magnets, the BurstBuckers produce a full-bodied and airy tone that will highlight every dynamic nuance of your playing style - especially the BurstBucker 3 with its hotter, overwound sound.

    Really nice guitar. Plays really nicely, especially with the satin finish making the neck feel particularly pleasant. I like the fairly thick neck too. Sounds terrific through a Fender Bassbreaker.
