Gibson Custom Shop 2019 Historic 1958 Les Paul Standard
A Fantastic '58
What's more delightful than a killer 1958 Reissue Les Paul? They resonate like nobody's business thanks to their hide glue construction. Hide glue is a protein-based adhesive that creates the strongest possible connection between two pieces of wood. Though it is incredibly difficult to work with, hide glue allows for maximum energy transfer and therefore maximum resonance. By building these guitars with premium woods and old-world manufacturing techniques, Gibson has captured some serious mojo!
Classic magic abounds in the electronics department, too. Two Alnico 3 Custombuckers put out plenty of classic PAF tone. The neck pickup is thick and juicy, and the bridge pickup has more bite and punch than Mike Tyson!
And the chunky C-shaped neck profile is a joy to play. You can get maximum leverage for bends, and the round contour feels just right in the palm of your hand. Gibson also made the change to vintage-style narrow-tall frets, which allow for easy string-bending.
We're proud to showcase such a delightful instrument for our exceptional customers. We know it will provide a lifetime of inspiration to some lucky Gibson lover!
