All of the specs that make a Historic Les Paul special, plus the added looks and feel of a Ultra Light Aged finish: this is the Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard in a Southern Fade finish. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop's expert team -- a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s 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 twenty-five years ago. It has a beautiful figured maple top; each is unique and full of character. The ultra light aging treatment adds a bit of patina to the hardware and intricate lines of finish checking. Each one is unique to itself, and unlike any other Les Paul you'll find.
