1959 Les Paul Standard

The 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard represents the pinnacle of electric solidbody guitar design -- the point where aesthetics and functionality peaked at the same time.

This example has the perfect look -- a deeply flamed maple top and a faded cherry sunburst finish (brighter red under the pickguard and in the pickup cavities). And the perfect sound -- with PAF humbucking pickups.

This beautiful "Burst" (Inv. #EB5442) is in exceptionally fine condition except for a small area of belt buckle wear (not through the finish). With orignal hard case it is SOLD.

This instrument is SOLD
