GIBSON 1959 LES PAUL STANDARD 2012 REISSUE - ICED TEA BURST - AGED

Unit price  per 

The Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard precisely follows the body lines and dimensions of the original ’59 Les Paul Standard, with a gently arched carved top and rounded lower bout, and combines the classic tonewood combination of mahogany back and carved maple top. The body’s back is cut from a single piece of solid, high-grade, lightweight clear mahogany, and capped with a two-piece top of figured maple that is carved into a period-correct “dish”, or arch.

Created after precise measurement of original vintage Les Pauls, this model incorporates a stunning amount of period-correct detail that combines to make the Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard look, feel, and sound like the real thing. In addition to several obvious features such as its one-piece mahogany neck with long tenon, BurstBucker PAF reproduction pickups, solid non-weight relieved mahogany back, and accurate rounded ’59 neck profile, other subtle but important nuances take this guitar’s accuracy even further. These include its historically accurate thin fingerboard binding that’s only .040-inch thick (which contributes greatly to the comfortable, vintage-feeling, “rolled” fingerboard edges), historically accurate 1/2-inch wire channel from toggle switch to control pocket, accurately sized back control pocket route, correct height of the binding in the cutaway, 5/8-inch heel with accurate heel shape, period-correct carved arch on the guitar’s maple top, correctly tapered headstock with tuner holes in a straight line (rather than following the headstock edge), and much, much more.

Hard to find 2012 "Hard Rock Maple" top '59 in Iced Tea finish, with a nice feeling "C" shape neck. This is one of the hand picked Yamano run Les Pauls. Gibson did a very taseful aging on this 59. Very light finish checking and dings to give it a very accurate feel of what most 1959 Les Paul Standards would look like today if they were played with lots of love for the past 50 years.

Today was an exceptional customer experience at Arties music. Bought my guitar their close to two years ago. Had a issue with it and took it in. It was replaced without any of the usual haggle. Thanks Arties. Your service is exceptional and I’ll keep coming back. Highly recommend

Friendly staff and professional service, purchased a Maton Guitar recently and they gave me a great price! Love shopping at Arties!

I used the online order and pick up option for the first time. The level of communication about my order status was great and the music book actually arrived earlier than expected. The guys were busy when it was time to pick up my order yet engaged with all customers so you felt acknowledged while waiting. Really great work team, well done!
