Gibson Les Paul Standard 1959 SOLD


Product Code: GS3438

$ 0.00

The holiest of guitar grails, the 1959 Les Paul Standard! This beautiful example of an original "burst" has both the feel and sound that make these guitars so sought after. The original PAFs produce a powerful yet clear tone, a sound that is often imitated but never duplicated. With a great feeling neck and a weight of 9 lbs, the guitar is as comfortable as they come!

The back of neck has been refinished in an opaque red shade that probably matched the back of the guitar when the refin was done. The back of the headstock has been oversprayed, and the serial number is no longer there. The pots date to late 1958, and the neck has a 1960 feel, so we believe it is a '59.  The bridge, jackplate, switch tip, and tuners have been replaced (original tuners and bridge are in case). There is also clear finish over the pickguard.
