* Description of the 2014 Gibson 59' Reissue by Gibson *

The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature 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, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Standard is considered by many to be the pinnacle of Gibson's mid-century solid body electric guitars. At first a commercial failure, the '59 was adopted by some the world's greatest players like Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and countless others years after it was discontinued by Gibson. Today, one of the less than 700 originals built commands hundreds of thousands of dollars. The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Standard is an amazingly accurate replica of these highly valuable guitars rendered in detail so intricate that you'll find the same part numbers and tooling marks on the inside of one the guitar's pickup rings as one, small example. The True Historic 1959 Les Paul Reissue is as close as you can come to owning an original 1959 Les Paul. Experience the ownership and playability of an original, without the price tag of an original.

 

True Historic Plastics

Based on lab analysis of original Gibson plastics from the 1950s, the plastics on the True Historics—including the Toggle Washer, Cream Jackplate, Cream Pickguard, Pickup Mounting Rings and Toggle Switch Cap—have been reformulated and re-engineered to the original specifications of their vintage counterparts. 

True Historic Pickup Covers

Engineered and manufactured to capture every nuance and angle of original vintage pickup covers. 

Double-Carved Top

To capture the original top carve profile of original vintage Les Pauls, all True Historic Les Pauls are double carved by CNC, with the final shape of their dish arch perfected in a hand-sanding process. 

Double-Carved Neck

The necks on all True Historic Les Pauls are double carved and then hand-sanded to capture that legendary vintage Gibson neck profile: the "beefy", solid feel of a beautifully crafted Les Paul that rests in the player's hand like no other guitar. 

"Broken" Peghead Edges

Hand-sanded peghead, neck, and body edges beautifully capture the look and feel of a true Les Paul. 

Thinner Peghead Veneer

While you can't see it on a finished Les Paul, all Gibsons from the '50s had a thinner peghead veneer. From 2015, all True Historic guitars feature this detail in their mission to be as close to the originals as possible. 

Thinner True Historic Wet-Sanded Finish

All True Historic guitars from Gibson are sprayed with thinner nitrocellulose finishes, as were original '50s guitars, and are now hand wet-sanded for beauty and authenticity. 

Hide Glue Top Construction

Along with all hide glue neck construction, Gibson Custom extends the use of hot hide glue to join the back and top of every True Historic guitar, just as it was done in the 1950s. 

Rolled Fingerboard Binding

One of the most magical aspects of an original '50s Les Paul is its smooth, natural playing feel. We hand-file the fingerboard binding on every True Historic Les Paul to capture that feel precisely.
