This Classic Reissue from Gibson will Transport You Back

If you know, you know. And if you don’t, here is our chance to introduce you to one of the absolute legends in the world of the solidbody electrics: the 1959 Les Paul. With the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue Heavy Aged Electric Guitar, Gibson offers a dead ringer to the original that captures the tone, playability, and presentation of an instrument that has been sought out by just about every rock guitarist of the past six decades — collectors, vintage shops, and even pawn stores have all been invaded by players searching for this classic. The 1959 Reissue Heavy Aged Relic features a 1-piece lightweight mahogany back with a 2-piece figured maple top with a hide-glue fit. This combo yields an incredible blend of tone that is heavy on the treble with a lush low end — an ideal balance for soaring leads and punchy chords. A pair of CustomBucker pickups cuts through the mix with classic PAF tone. And a solid mahogany, ’59 profile “C”-shape neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard offers a one-of-a-kind response and feel. Finally, a Murphy Lab Heavy Aged finish lends a vintage patina that is sure to captivate you and your audience.

CustomBucker pickups deliver pure vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to this guitar’s electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Every part of its internal signal path was designed to deliver dead-on 1959 Les Paul tone. Of course, it’s next to impossible to find genuine ’50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue sports a pair of unpotted Gibson CustomBucker Alnico III humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever.

Authentic ’59 “C” neck and Plek’d frets for optimized playability

Comfort and playability were two of Gibson’s primary concerns when they designed this 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue. You’ll be delighted at how this guitar’s authentic ’59 “C” profile neck comfortably fills your hand in just the right way. For your playing pleasure, the bound Indian rosewood fingerboard is buffed to silky smoothness and the frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for optimized playability. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you’ll ever own.

Artfully aged in Gibson Custom Shop’s Murphy Lab

Under the leadership of Master Artisan Tom Murphy, Gibson Custom Shop’s Murphy Lab performs one specific function: to craft artfully aged instruments using the most cutting-edge tools available. These guitars are targeted to one of four distinct levels of age and wear, ranging from Ultra-Light to Ultra-Heavy. The 1959 Reissue Heavy Aged features prominent checking patterns, along with lots of buckle rash, light arm wear, and neck wear. Think of it as a guitar that’s experienced 50-plus years of life on the road. Murphy Lab heavy-aged hardware puts the final touch on this exquisite instrument. Beyond that, this guitar’s extra-rolled fingerboard binding mimics the broken-in look and feel of a Golden-era Gibson. If you clamor for the authenticity and distinct character of a well-worn vintage-style instrument, there’s a Murphy Lab-aged guitar that will feel like it was tailor-made just for you.
