Product information - GIBSON 1959 Les Paul Standard Factory Burst Ultra Light Aged

Custom Shop Les Paul electric guitar with Custom Bucker pickups and Murphy Lab Aging Treatment, including case and certificate

As a tribute to the legendary design of the Les Paul of the year 1959, the Gibson Custom Shop offers in cooperation with the aging specialists of the Murphy Lab an extremely successful recreation of the archetype. From the turned wood selection to the hand-wired electronics to the texture of Finish and Hardware, the Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Factory Burst Ultra Light Aged really does offer everything a classic '59 Les Paul should.

Flamed maple top and mahogany neck with long neck base

The basis of the Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Factory Burst Ultra Light Aged is its basic construction of selected tonewoods, as they were already used in the late fifties. Accordingly, the body consists of a solid piece of mahogany and is finished with a two-piece flamed maple top with a fancy flame. Of course in the recipe of a good Fifties Les Paul the up to under the neck pickup glued Long Neck Tenon of the mahogany neck is not missing.

Gibson Custom Bucker with Paper-in-Oil Caps

For appropriate sounds of the legendary PAF humbucker, Gibson relies on successful replicas of the coveted dual coils with two Custom Bucker Humbuckers. Hand-wound at Gibson Custom Shop, the pickups are fitted with Alnico III magnets for a warm and vocal tone character and feature non-waxed coils, clearly preserving the treble content in the signal. The electronics wiring is also completely hand-wired and holds original components of the golden LP era with CTS potentiometers for volume and tone and oil-paper capacitors.

Murphy Lab Ultra Light Aged Treatment

Created by aging legend Tom Murphy, the Murphy Lab is a series of experts who analyze in detail the lacquer finish and aging process of Hardware original instruments and authentically recreate them as part of the 1959 Les Paul Standard Factory Burst Ultra Light Aged. The Ultra Light Aged Treatment replicates Murphy Lab's lightest aging process and simulates the few signs of wear and tear on an amazingly well-maintained instrument that shows only a few age-related traces in the form of nitro lacquer cracks and a slight Hardware aging. The composition of the nitro varnish was also taken into account here, so that the instrument can continue to develop a tasteful aging over time.
