Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue - Dirty Lemon
Here at Russo Music, we're no strangers to the relentless pursuit of guitar perfection. Gibson Custom Shop has been pushing the envelope and setting the gold standard for finely crafted electric guitars, all while honoring the Gibson legacy. The epitome of this dedication? The Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS.
The legendary aura of the Les Paul has yet to diminish. The 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS embodies relentless dedication, extraordinary craftsmanship, and an acute ear for timeless tones. By employing historically-accurate specifications, it's an homage that accurately mirrors the original Les Pauls crafted in 1959, one might say it's a genuine time capsule.
Starting with the most exquisite materials, meticulous construction forms the essence of the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue. The marriage of a 2-piece figured maple top with a 1-piece lightweight mahogany back results in the iconic single-cutaway body that feels just right in your grasp. A robust mahogany '50s Rounded Medium C-shaped neck provides smooth navigation from the higher to lower registers of the Indian Rosewood fingerboard, armed with Historic Gibson Medium-Jumbo frets. To top it all off, two Custombucker Alnico III unpotted pickups offer that iconic Les Paul sound, adored and known across the globe.
Breaking new ground, the finish on the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS is an innovation in the Gibson Custom Shop's playbook. Their VOS Nitrocellulose finish superbly replicates the distinctive traits of Gibson's original Nitrocellulose Lacquer from the 1950s and 1960s. This unique finish delivers a familiar, well-loved and played-in vibe straight out of the box. It's a striking combination of something old and something new, bringing together the best of both worlds.
This guitar's allure doesn't end there. Distinguished features include an ABR-1 bridge, a lightweight aluminum stop bar tailpiece, and traditional cellulose nitrate trapezoid fret inlays. Also included are an official Gibson hardshell case, a Custom Shop switch plate medallion, reissue switch backplate, and a certificate of authenticity. The Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS is a complete package, ready to let you create your own chapter in music history.
In conclusion, the Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue in Dirty Lemon not only takes you on a trip down memory lane, but it equips you with the ability to carve out your own future in music. In its historical accuracy and iconic sound, it sets the stage for a new era of unforgettable musical moments.
