Gibson True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Vintage Lemon Burst

Gibson True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Vintage Lemon Burst: Unprecedented Accuracy in Vintage Looks, Feel, and Tone.

The most desirable Les Paul ever captured with unprecedented accuracy for the 2015 True Historic Series, with wet-sanded nitro finish, double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, rolled binding and more.

With the True Historic range, Gibson Custom commits to a fanatic level of detail accuracy to bring you as close as possible to owning an original 1959 Gibson Les Paul. A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1959 Les Pauls offered. Add a pair of superbly accurate Custom Bucker pickups, re-created from precise study and measurement of original PAFs, and that legendary Burst tone is all there. You simply can’t get closer to the real thing… than the real thing.
