This is a stunning custom shop Les Paul.
The new Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul entirely captures the look, feel, and tone of the guitar that has been at the center of Southern Rock since its origination in the late 1960s, while proceeds from the sales of this extremely Limited Edition will go to benefit members of the music community in need through Music Health Alliance and The Gibson Foundation.
Capturing all the essentials of the legendary burst, and crafted with the utmost skill by the luthiers of Gibson Custom to a feature set derived through vintage experts and members of the Southern Rock community, the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul stands out with its unique “Reverseburst” finish over a beautifully figured maple top, which results in a subtle heart-like pattern toward the center of the guitar.
To further commemorate the occasion, the switch cavity in the guitar’s back is adorned by a metal “Southern Rock Tribute” cover (spare traditional plastic cover included in the case).
In every other way, the Southern Rock Tribute 1959 Les Paul stands out as a classic vintage burst. From its rounded ’59 neck profile, to its killer PAF-style Custom Bucker pickups, to its traditional plastics and hardware set, this is every ounce a stunning Les Paul, and one you’ll be proud to display, whether as part of a growing collection or out on the big stage.
A stunning looking guitar with a lovely tight flame top and a tone to die for. Gibson have got it spot on with the custom buckers, they sound like vintage PAFs and we love them!
This guitar is ex-demo and may show some light signs of use.
A truly superb guitar.
