Gibson's first reissue of the famed 1959 Les Paul with a beautifully flamed maple top with sunburst finish. The headstock was fully broken and professionally repaired using a new three piece headstock to match the wood grain. The original black veener with inlay Gibson logo and Les Paul Model script remained intact. The serial number was stamped to the back of the neck using a smaller font.
Besides the headstock repair, the guitar is in original condition and plays well. The body is one piece mahogany slab with a flamed maple top. Hardware is nickel that has aged to a natural 40 year old patina. The humbuckers are stock Tim Shaw PAF clones that sound strong with defined articulation. Tone is classic Les Paul muscle with defined notes.
Original hard is included.
