The very best Gibson Custom Shop ’59 Les Paul Historics were produced from 1993-2001 and this extraordinary ’59 is no exception!
These exclusive instruments featured AAAA-AAAAA grade flame maple tops, finer woods, better craftsmanship, lower production numbers & most importantly mojo! This guitar is in Mint condition and has virtually no playing time on it. Absolutely STUNNING Flame Maple AAAAA top and Cherry Sunburst finish with a warm color transition that lends to the elegance of this historic reissue.
Ok, let’s talk tone! I have played many ’59 Les Paul Historics in my time and while they all sound good there is always a couple that border on magical and this is one of them! Big fat, significant tone that can only be described as Sonic Bliss. Nice articulate clean tone with an perfect balance of lows, mids, and highs. No mud or high end harshness. Les Paul growl when pushed and an amazingly rich sounding, smoky crunch that will please even the most discriminating player.
