Used Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul Custom
Tonal EvaluationThis phenomenal vintage 1959 Les Paul Custom 3-Pickup Black Beauty is certainly a head turner, and for good reason! This "fretless wonder" is a piece of history, sporting the traditional Les Paul Custom "tuxedo" look that would become iconic in it's own right. Tonally, this incredible vintage treasure is about as vocal as it can get, with an ultra resonant body that gives back everything you put in to it with an incredible dynamic response.
The neck position is extremely creamy, but articulate, never losing composure or note definition under a heavy attack. Flip to the middle position and you'll find exceptional cut and clarity, with the bridge and middle pickup out of phase, producing glorious "quack" and expressive push in the upper midrange. The bridge pickup is exceptionally thick, with excellent punch and an extremely vocal high end, lending itself to soaring single note runs with gobs of harmonic content.
The Wildwood Staff is honored to present this vintage treasure to our exceptional customers, and we invite you to discover the magic of a vintage late 50s Gibson instrument.
