Product Description

Celebrating its 60th Anniversary, the 1959 Les Paul is the most desirable guitar ever made! No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard. It wasn't a successful model when it was released (under 650 were made) but before long it was adopted by some of the world's greatest guitarists -- Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few. The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility. "It has a deep, powerful sound and you can use it to imitate just about anything – violin, sax, cello, even a sitar," says Jeff Beck.

All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted and legendary guitar on the planet. Gibson Custom Shop's 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to the priceless original models -- it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of yearly advancements to accuracy and authenticity since Gibson Custom Shop began examining vintage Les Pauls over twenty years ago.

Product Review

I like the clarity of seeing the exact guitar with excellent pictures that AMS always delivers. I've owned it over a month and will never part with this guitar. The best feeling and sounding Les Paul guitar out of a dozen historic and custom shop guitars I've owned. This 2019 60th anniversary model has met my high expectations in expression and feel. The woods and construction are finally what I've always dreamed a Les Paul should feel and sound like. Worth the price so no regrets. AMS really has great guitars that are best of the best.
