Gibson Custom Shop Benchmark Collection 2014 Limited Run 1960 Heavy Aged Les Paul Holiday Pricing

Item: GBLPR0HABMSBNH1534

The 1960 Handpicked Heavy Aged Les Paul is part of the Gibson Customs Benchmark Limited Run Series from 2014. These are guitars were designed to be the very best of the best. From the hand selected wood, the masterful aging to the Custom wound pickups and combined with features that you just won't see anywhere else.

The pickups were designed to closely resemble the tone of what some of our favorite "PAF" guitars sound like now. By under winding Gibson's new Custom Bucker pickup to a specified spec and comparing it to other guitars with original "PAF" pickups Gibson has brought back the clarity and sweet high end that everyone has been searching for. The Benchmark Les Pauls are utilizing the TonePros long studs and posts which will give a bit more sustain to this already beautifully sounding guitar. This 1960 Les Paul has an amazing looking highly figured hand selected maple top with aging that will make you feel like you have played this guitar for over 50 years. We specified the ""Slow Iced Tea" finish on this guitar to give it the timeless and classic appearance.
