Hot off the heels of their 'back to basics' 2019 collection, Gibson has unveiled a new 60th Anniversary Les Paul model, which the company claim is a virtual "clone" of the coveted 1959 sunburst Les Paul Standard.
From the laser-scanned dimensions and chemically recreated plastics, to the colour matched shades of sunburst rendered with astounding accuracy, this remake is not one to be missed.
The amazing new model features a two-piece figured maple top, a solid mahogany neck with an authentic '59 Medium C-shape profile and a fingerboard of either Indian or Bolivian rosewood. Pickups are a pair Custombucker Alnico III humbuckers and controls boast CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors.
There’s also a no-wire ABR-1 bridge, a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece and Kluson single line, single-ring tuners.
The 60th Anniversary is available in a variety of finishes, including Factory Burst, Cherry Teaburst, Green Lemon Fade and more.
