2019 Gibson 60th Anniversary Les Paul 1959 R9 Reissue Sunrise Teaburst VOS
We've had an amazing run in 2019 of some of the best 60th Ann. R9's and this is the one I kept for myself. Out of over 60 R9's that year I hand picked this one because of the super dark fingerboard, perfect balanced weight, and a top & color right out of Beauty of the Burst. Most importantly though was the tone of this guitar which has a beautiful articulate warm tone that can get nasty if you turn all the knobs to 10! So if I wasn't personally investing in a vintage piece she'd stay here for good but sometimes you have to let guitar this good go back out into the world. I've kept it in great condition most noticeable is a bit of binding bleed which is shown. All case candy and lifton case shown are included.

60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard
The Most Desirable Guitar Ever Made Celebrates Its 60th Anniversary.
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. Gibson Custom Shop's 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to the priceless original models -- it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of yearly advancements to accuracy and authenticity since Gibson Custom Shop began examining vintage Les Pauls over twenty years ago.
