For players obsessed with vintage guitars, or remakes that are as close as possible to the real thing, the True Historic line from Gibson is a dream come true.
This 2016 True Historic Les Paul Custom features replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, nylon nut, hide glue construction, and Custom Bucker pickups, it is one of the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range.
Condition: Very good+. Aside from some light worming on the back and a few small indentations, this guitar has been well cared for. The frets show very little wear and the setup is fantastic w/low action.
This True Historic 1959 Les Paul is simply a fantastic Les Paul replica in every regard - looks, feel, and of course, tones. Players looking to get into a boutique-level guitar, but at a substantial savings over those hand-made instruments, would be wise to check this beauty out! Price with hardshell case.
