1960 was the last year of production for the original Les Paul Standard. Nearly identical to a 1959 model except for a few specs, the '60 Les Paul Standard most notably featured a fast-playing 'SlimTaper' neck profile — beloved by the many famous musicians who played '60 "Bursts", including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh and Paul McCartney. It also has "reflector" volume & tone knobs and wider "double-ring" tuner tips.

The Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a detailed clone of the originals, from its hide-glue construction to its chemically re-engineered plastic parts. Each one is built with extreme care, reverence and attention-to-detail by expert Custom Shop craftspeople who are committed to providing an authentic vintage ownership experience.

Key Features

  • Mahogany Construction — Timeless tonewood (used for the body/neck) yields the thick and sustain-rich sound synonymous with Gibson guitars.
  • Non-Weight Relieved Body — Old-school design; gives the instrument a substantial feel and captures that iconic vintage sound.
  • Nitrocellulose 'VOS' Finish — Traditional lacquer; allows the guitar to "breathe" and resonate more freely. It'll age beautifully over time too!
  • 1960 SlimTaper Neck Shape — Thin profile allows for fast playability at all areas of the Mahogany neck.
  • Indian Rosewood Fingerboard — Silky material that introduces warm complexities into the tonal mix; featuring a comfortable 12" radius and 22 frets.
  • Authentic Medium Jumbo Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
  • Gibson Custombucker Pickups — Provide nostalgic 'PAF' humbucking tones; featuring alnico III magnets that produce a punchy mid-range character with smooth, rounded highs.
  • ABR-1 Bridge — Legendary Gibson 'Tune-O-Matic' design. Easily-adjustable and maximises string vibration transference through the body.
  • Brown/Pink Lifton Reissue 5-Latch Case — Perfectly protects this exquisite Custom Shop creation against knocks on the road!
