Up for sale is this awesome Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue! The 1959 Les Paul is iconic and widely considered as the holy grail of Les Pauls. This fantastic instrument is built using laser-scanned dimensions and no detail is sparred. From prime tone-wood choices, chemically-recreated plastics, historically accurate components, these are as close to an original vintage Les Paul as one can get.

This particular Custom Shop '59 Les Paul is a great example of the excellent work that the luthiers in Nashville can do.  It's one of the best feeling Les Paul's we've had here, and is a great weight (just 8.6 lbs).  It sounds amazing too - a thick, soulful tone the gives you exactly what you'd want out of a Les Paul.  We also love the color; Heritage Cherry Burst can be hard to get "right", but they nailed it.

This guitar is in excellent condition - it's obvious that the previous owner took great care of it and didn't play it a lot.  Everything is original on the guitar.  It comes with the original hardshell case as well as the Certificate of Authenticity.  It has been vetted and setup to play perfectly by the techs in our shop.

We get a lot of killer Les Paul's here, but this is one that really stands out.  If you're in the market, you've found a winner!
