Gibson Custom Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Gibson Custom Shop guitars include appointments to add even more vintage vibe to their guitars. Necks and fretboards are attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. Kluson Green Key Tuners now feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. These features and others make the Gibson Custom Shop Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue a dream come true for fans of vintage Gibsons.
Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe
Gibson Custom revived the very essence of the original '59 Les Paul guitar. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, hand-carved and bookmatched maple top, and holly-head veneer headstock are only the beginning. The details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue's Kluson Green Key tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50s-style long neck tenon joint. The Gibson Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is an amazing tribute to the classic '59 Les Paul that so many guitarists revere as the Holy Grail of guitars.
CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on '59 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Custom Shop Standard Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue sports a pair of Gibson's CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever.
