Here is a beautiful and rare "Pre-Historic" 1959 Reissue Les Paul Standard "Burst". She has been nicely maintained over 22 years and still looks, feels & plays like a dream. In 1984, Gibson responded to the enthusiastic demand for a more accurate replication of the iconic 1959 Les Paul Standard by introducing what is now referred to as Pre-Historic (pre-dating the "Historic" line) . This early series of reissues continued until 1995, and were the first full production run to feature a 59' style one-piece neck with vintage Kluson tuners. This particular example also features the highly sought after Bill Lawrence Original Humbuckers as well as a AAA+ flamed-maple top. With a super-low 1990 serial number, this is likely one of the first guitars made in what would become a wildly succesful decade for Gibson! A real 1959 Burst could run you $200K-500K; You can own this baby for a very sweet price, even in the reissue market.
