Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2020 Gibson Custom ’59 Les Paul R9 Standard “Beauty on the Burst” with a Stunning Figured Cherry Red Finish! The Gibson Custom Shop ’59 Les Paul Standard is a painstakingly accurate replica of one of the most treasured guitars of all time. 1959 was the pinnacle year for Gibson’s mid-century solid body electric guitars, and no ’59 is more famous than the sunburst Les Paul Standard. At first a commercial failure, it was eventually adopted by some of the world’s greatest guitarists —Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons, to name a few. The rarity and celebrity association has pushed the values of original examples into the stratosphere.
This Gibson Custom guitar is far beyond being a “copy.” Thousands of hours of research went into this Les Paul Standard—even the chemical composition of the parts was scientifically examined and re-engineered. If you’ve ever dreamed of going back to ’59 to pull a Les Paul off the wall of your local mom and pop, this instrument will make you believe that time travel is real. The figured maple top even features a recreation of a classic finish from the famed book The Beauty of the ‘Burst.
Sonically, visually, and tactilely, the 2020 Gibson Custom Shop Historic ’59 Les Paul Standard is as close as you can get to a priceless original. It includes a hardshell case and certificate of authenticity. MINTY Condition with just a tiny finish touch up on back edge of boyd, an indent by the knobs and a couple micro marks here and there, easy 9.7/10! ALL Original. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs!
