Considered by many the most legendary electric guitar ever made, the 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard has spent a good deal of the past 60 years in the spotlight in the hands of iconic rock and blues guitarists who celebrated it for its power and its versatility.

For this 60th anniversary year, the Gibson Custom Shop has gone beyond merely paying tribute to the glorious original. Using a combination of modern technologies and precision measurements, they have recreated it, from exact laser-scanned dimensions down to precise duplication of the original plastics and finishes.

Versatile body shape with old-school appointments for classic vibe.
The first Gibson J-185 was introduced in 1951, giving players a broader choice of flat-top acoustic guitars. It quickly became a hit. With a slightly smaller body than Gibson’s fabled Super Jumbos, the J-185 offers an excellent alternative for players seeking a smaller body style without sacrificing acoustic power and projection. Traditionally, the J-185 features a body length of 20-1/4", a width of 16", and a body depth of 4-7/8", producing an big sound with clear acoustics, making it equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. This 2019 J-185 Limited Edition acoustic guitar is built with a Thermally Aged Sitka spruce top complemented by a Vintage Sunburst finish and a flame maple body with multi-ply binding. The Slim Taper mahogany neck sports a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays and bone nut.

The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character. Available in a variety of classic sunburst shades.

1960 was the last year for the original Les Paul Standard, nearly identical to a 1959 model except for a few specs. Most notably, it features a fast-playing slim neck profile, beloved by the many famous musicians who played '60 Bursts including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, and Paul McCartney. It also has "reflector" Volume & Tone knobs and wider "double-ring" tuner tips. The Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a clone of the originals from the hide-glue construction to the chemically re-engineered plastic parts. Each one is built with extreme care, reverence and attention to detail by expert Custom Shop craftspeople who are committed to providing an authentic vintage ownership experience.
This is a USED instrument being sold in 'Very good' condition. Original hardshell case included.
Gibson Custom SG Standard VOS Reissue Features:
Burstbucker pickups with three-way toggle switch
When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that’s got a pair of humbuckers, right? Forget all those thin “out-of-phase” guitar sounds that the session players overused in the 1980s and (sad to say) right through much of the ’90s. That’s not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch and midrange complexity you can only get from humbuckers. With that in mind, the Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue comes with a smoking hot pair of Burstbuckers – a Burstbucker 1 in the neck and a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge – for the ultimate in tone along with Gibson’s standard layout of two volume and two tone controls and a three-position toggle switch.
Authentic ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and Maestro Vibrola tailpiece
One of Gibson’s many accomplishments during the 1950s was the development of the tune-o-matic bridge, which allowed for precise intonation of each and every string. The patent for the design, which Gibson designated as the ABR-1, was granted to Gibson president Ted McCarty, a fact that’s never been in dispute, though it wasn’t until more recently that McCarty’s many innovations have truly been recognized. Since some 1960s SGs shipped with Gibson’s unique Maestro Vibrola, which effectively replaced the earlier Bigsbys.
Solid mahogany neck with long neck tenon and rosewood fingerboard
The SG Standard, which was Gibson’s premier solidbody electric after the company discontinued the Les paul line, was produced with the slim-taper mahogany neck, making it among the fastest ever designed. The Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue reproduces that ultra fast profile with the historically accurate long neck tenon. If you like the combination of a fast mahogany neck with the warmth of the traditional rosewood fingerboard plus the nearly limitless access to the upper frets that’s an SG trademark, you’ll love the SG Standard Vintage Original Spec Reissue. It’s fully bound and includes accurate acrylic trapezoid position markers and those distinctive vintage “tulip” tuners.

The Brian Ray ’62 SG Junior builds on the popularity of Brian’s ‘63 SG Standard model with exciting design elements, versatile features and analog innovations. It has become Brian’s guitar of choice on recent tours with Sir Paul McCartney, playing on the world’s biggest stages. And because of the variety of stage conditions, Brian wanted to make sure this SG Junior offered a lot more than meets the eye. A passive “induction coil” circuit, engaged with a tap of the push-push knob, hides under the pickguard to reduce RF interference and high-gain noise while preserving the tone of the powerful P-90 pickup. The clever convertible bridge design gives players the choice between a tune-o-matic ABR-1, a wrap-tail bridge, and/or a Vibrola tremolo – all available in the time it takes to change strings. The solid mahogany body is also slightly thicker than a normal SG, which Brian says “offers more low and mid-range punch to the overall tone of the guitar up and down the neck.” The finishing touches include sleek, pearlescent White Fox paint, a custom trapezoid inlay pattern and an ebony block tailpiece as seen on some original 1962 SG models. It’s easily the most versatile and distinctive SG Junior ever created, and for Brian it’s also reliable and just plain cool.

Dave has played Les Pauls on stage for the last four decades, but lately he has been forced to choose between his two favorites -- a '59 Reissue and a Les Paul Axcess. So began a collaboration between Dave and the experts at Gibson Custom Shop to develop Dave's "perfect" Les Paul. The result is a beautiful and versatile Les Paul Axcess model unlike anything else available. Dave requested a figured top with a "Boston Sunset Fade" finish (inspired by his home town), a unique White Ebony fingerboard, an extra-chunky neck profile, a Floyd Rose tremolo and two '57 Classic Plus humbuckers. He also wanted the latest Axcess construction elements including a swept neck heel, revised back contours and an Apex headstock carve which naturally strengthens the neck. It is now Dave's main guitar on tour and in the studio, representing only the best of his favorite specs.
