The Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Vintage Original Spec model is the next step in Gibsons journey toward perfection. The only major change to the Les Paul Standard in 1959 was the addition of the wider, fatter jumbo frets, which facilitated more dramatic bends. The real force of this change was not felt until the late 1960s, when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the 59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the 59 Les Pauls as the Holy Grail of guitars in the midst of professionals, collectors, and weekend warriors. All VOS model Gibsons are given an aged appearance by enduring unique staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing processes. The result of these methods creates a visually stunning reflection of a well-cared for 40-year-old Gibson. Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS Features 1-piece, solid mahogany backs. Not book-matched or weight-relieved Historically accurate neck tenon for superior sustain - you can see it extending under the neck pick-up Bumblebee capacitors (where applicable), and correct routing Historically accurate reproductions of original PAF humbuckers Tortoise dot markers on the side of the neck ABR-1 bridge and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece Holly headstock veneer Period-correct stain and filler 100% nitro-cellulose lacquer finishes - no added plasticizers Custom Shop VOS Guitars Gibson has been producing solid body electric guitars for 55 years. Of course, the most famous of these guitars is the legendary Les Paul. In 2006 the Gibson Custom Shop released its Vintage Original Spec (VOS) series in honor of the instruments that have literally shaped the face of music today. The series consists of a 1956 Les Paul Gold Top; a 57 Les Paul Junior Singlecut; a 57 Gold Top in plain and darkback; 57 Customs in 2 and 3 pickup versions; 58 Junior Double Cut; 58 Plain Top; 59 Les Paul Sunburst reissue; 60 Les Paul Reissue; 60 Les Paul Specials in Single and Double Cut; an SG Standard Reissue; and an SG Custom 3 pickup Reissue. The production of these instruments is the culmination of 20 years of experience producing handmade Gibson Custom guitars. We primarily took on the challenge of re-creating the 3 most vital aspects of these legendary instruments: Look, Playability, and most of all Tone. In order to accurately reproduce the appearance of vintage Gibsons, the Custom Shop uses a combination of faithful adherence to our history and proprietary new processes and inventions. The hardware is left to soak in a special solution that transforms a brand new pick-up cover into a gently used historic jewel. The plastic and binding are painstakingly hand
