"1959 was kinda the year they call 'the holy grail' it was, ah, one of the best years for Les Pauls. So they went back in the Gibson custom shop and they started designing them, or building just like they did in 1959. It has some other different specs, the joint piece here is longer. They went right back to what they were in 1959. This is a great guitar." The item can be seen 3:22 into the video.more
I absolutely adore Gibsons. This is the first one I've owned and I can help but have it in my hands playing it every minute I can. The hefty price tag, in my opinion, is merely testament to the heritage, the workmanship and the sheer bliss the guitar blesses you with. This guitar is going to stay with me forever. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It was always the one that stood out to me in the shop, and whist identical ones were flying off the shelves, this one stayed there for me to come and visit until I'd finally saved up enough. I could go on forever. But need I say more? It leaves me speechless.
