Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Joe Perry Les Paul VOS Faded Tobacco Burst

Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Joe Perry Les Paul VOS Faded Tobacco Burst


Created from painstaking examination and measurement of Joe Perry's original 1959 Les Paul guitar by the skilled craftsmen at Gibson Custom. You can now own the closest possible thing to Joe's most prized instrument. This very limited run of replicas is based on exclusive access to his original guitar. The Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul delivers the full tone, feel, and look of his highly prized '59 'Burst.

It’s got everything a great Les Paul is supposed to have.” Perry relates. “The neck isn’t quite as fat as, say, a ’54 Gold Top, but it’s still got a good meaty neck. The guitar has a slightly fuller feel than a usual '59, with broader shoulders - but you can still feel that slight "V" in the middle of the profile. The original '59 Les Paul (serial number 9-0653)  was owned originally by Perry, and has been through the hands of Eric Johnson, as well as Slash over the years.  The Alnico III Custom Buckers provide lots of clarity and medium-gain punch with an added bit of chime on top. .

Gibson Custom has gone to great lengths with the Joe Perry 1959 Les Paul to create a guitar that possesses the very spirit of the original. The recreation starts with a solid, one-piece premium lightweight mahogany body married to a hand-selected maple top. The guitar is finished in an exclusive Faded Tobacco Burst with Historic "Vintage" aniline red and dark walnut dye on the back, sides, and back of the neck, just like the original The hand-aged examples show characteristic wear that authentically matches the playing wear on the original, while the VOS guitars display a gently-aged patina in the finish and hardware. The neck is carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany and profiled to a full and sweetly rounded '59 shape derived from precise measurement of Joe's own guitar, then topped with a one-piece rosewood fingerboard inlaid with period-correct cellulose trapezoids. A set of Kluson Deluxe tuners, a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and ABR-1 bridge complete a period-correct hardware complement, while vintage cream binding, gold Top Hat knobs, and a cream plastic pickguard enhance the guitar's vintage looks.

This one has one of the nicest flamed maple tops you will see and has a very low serial#. Thanks to Gibson Custom and Joe Perry you can now make this rock-history-making Les Paul your very own.
