Description

GIBSON 1959 Les Paul VOS Iced Tea Burst

The 1959 Gibson Les Paul is one of the most sought-after guitars globally. They consistently price well into six figures, and a coveted Flame Top 59 Lea Paul could easily sell for well over half a million dollars. Gibson only shipped out 643 Les Pauls in 1959, so the chances of finding one are very slim. 

So thankfully, the Gibson Custom Shop has given us a chance to own our little slice of history!

The Holy Grail

Gibson Custom Shop's 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue 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 colour-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.
