Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul "Beauty of the Burst" Page 53 Lemon Drop Finish (706)
The Gibson Custom Shop ’59 Les Paul Standard is a painstakingly accurate replica of one of the most treasured guitars of all time. 1959 was the pinnacle year for Gibson's mid-century solid body electric guitars, and no ’59 is more famous than the sunburst Les Paul Standard. At first a commercial failure, it was eventually adopted by some of the world's greatest guitarists —Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons, to name a few. The rarity and celebrity association has pushed the values of original examples into the stratosphere.
This figured maple top even features a recreation of a classic finish from the famed book The Beauty of the 'Burst.
