Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard Murphy Aged Cherry Darkburst

Includes Hard Case

Manufacturer's ID: LPR59PSL13463

No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard. It wasn't a successful model when it was released (under 650 were made) but before long it was adopted by some of the world's greatest guitarists -- Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few.

The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility. "It has a deep, powerful sound and you can use it to imitate just about anything – violin, sax, cello, even a sitar," says Jeff Beck.

All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted and legendary guitar on the planet.
