Product information - GIBSON 1959 Les Paul Standard Slow Iced Tea Fade Heavy Aged

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

Paying tribute to the legendary 1959 Les Paul model, Gibson Custom Shop has collaborated with the aging specialists at Murphy Lab to offer a highly accomplished 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 Slow Iced Tea Fade Heavy Aged really does offer everything a classic '59 Les Paul should.

Maple top and mahogany neck with long neck base.

The basis of the Gibson 1959 Les Paul Standard Slow Iced Tea Fade Heavy Aged is its basic construction of selected tonewoods, as they were already used in the late fifties. Accordingly, the body is made of a solid piece of mahogany and finished with a two-piece curly maple top with a fancy flame. Of course, in the recipe of a good Fifties Les Paul, the long neck tenon of the mahogany neck, glued up to under the neck pickup, may not be 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 feature Alnico III magnets for a warm and vocal tone character and have 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 Heavy Aged Treatment

Created by aging legend Tom Murphy, the Murphy Lab is a series of experts who analyze in detail the finish and aging process of the hardware of original instruments and authentically recreate them in the 1959 Les Paul Standard Slow Iced Tea Fade Heavy Aged. The Heavy Aged Treatment represents a more severe aging process and simulates the accumulated wear and tear in the form of visible playing marks of an instrument that has been played frequently over the years. The composition of the nitro varnish was also taken into account here, so that the instrument can develop additional aging characteristics over time.
