What a beautiful looking, playing sounding 1959 Historic Les Paul we have here. I love the colouring and what I feel is the right amount of flame on the maple top. I little mineral streaking helps make this fabulous Les Paul look old. The guitar came from the original owner who purchased the guitar new in 2007. Has the cert, tags, Brown/Pink case and Gibson shipping carton.

From Gibson – The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature 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. 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 Standard is an amazingly accurate replica of these highly valuable guitars rendered in detail so intricate that you’ll find the same part numbers and tooling marks on the inside of one the guitar’s pickup rings as one, small example. The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is as close as you can come to owning an original 1959 Les Paul. Experience the ownership and playability of an original, without the price tag of an original.
