GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP STANDARD HISTORIC 1960 LES PAUL REISSUE

Delivering the looks, tone and feel of the 1960s Les Paul, this hand-crafted beauty features the same slim neck profile and historic appointments as the original.  Meticulously recreated aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and the renown sound transference from the longer neck tenon.  The details that made the 60s Les Paul legend are all alive in this artful reissue.

The Les Paul

One of the landmarks in music history, guitar legend and musical innovator Les Paul was working at the old Epiphone factory in New York City when he dreamt of the first solid body electric guitar. He spent 15 years developing his instrument, and in the late 50’s, the Gibson and Ephiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan created the very first Les Paul Standard. Early on it garnered the attention of Rolling Stones' guitarists Keith Richards and Eric Clapton of Cream, as it was capable of sustain and overdriven tones not possible in other instruments at the time. Over 60 years later it's continues to attract musicians from season professionals to young, budding rock stars.
