Gibson's Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is not just a tribute to the priceless original models — it's an exact clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics and colour-matched shades of sunburst; every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail.
It represents the culmination of decades of work by the Custom Shop's expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. This guitar is the definition of cool, and it's the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over 25 years ago.
The Murphy Lab 'Light Aged' finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of playing wear — giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from Gibson's "Golden Era".
