The incredible Ultra Lite aging by Murphy Lab technicians makes this model seem like it was stored away in a case all its life. Gibson Custom Shop has truly outdone themselves in creating the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue! 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 decades of work by Custom Shop's expert team -- a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s the definition of cool, and it's the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago.
