1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst

1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst


The 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard " Burst "  is far and away one the most desirable and collectable guitars ever produced. Visually, each example displays unique characteristics in the figured maple tops, unique grain patterns in the Honduran mahogany backs & necks and of course the different variations in the original sunburst finishes. The tonal versatility and playability have made these guitars the choice of some of the greatest guitarists / recording artists of all time.

This all original example, which has been documented in "The Beauty of the Burst " book as well as a few others, is in outstanding condition and has survived the test of time beautifully. It displays only some minor honest player wear, still displays great color, and sounds and plays amazingly well. The maple top displays depth, movement and fantastic character. The mahogany is some of the most beautiful we've seen and also displays movement, character and great color. It currently has repro correct footprint machines on it to preserve the originals but they are included with the instrument along with its original 5 latch brown case.
