Take It From The Top

This left handed Gibson Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Standard comes in a gloss royal teaburst finish for a thoroughly classic look. The Custom Shop craftspeople created this masterpiece with extreme care and attention to detail, with the stated aim of producing an authentic vintage ownership experience. Adopted by some world's greatest guitarists, including Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Billy Gibbons, this model is based on a prototype universally considered as a holy grail amongst vintage guitars.

Delivering the tone, looks and feel of the original 1960, Slim Neck Les Paul, the historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and the renowned sound transference that comes with its long neck tenon are amongst the key attributes. The most important details that made the original the legend it still is to this day, are artfully revived for a convincing vintage playing experience.

Gibson’s Take

Special Features

1960 was the last year for the original Les Paul Standard and single-cut Les Pauls in general, as the SG model was lined up to replace them with a more "modernistic" look. This year also saw the adoption of new "reflector" knobs and a new slim neck shape, a perfect profile for the many famous musicians who played '60 Bursts including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, and Paul McCartney. Gibson Custom's '60 Les Paul Standard is a painstakingly-accurate replica of the highly-valuable originals rendered in detail so intricate that even the chemical composition of the parts has been scientifically examined and re-engineered – and that's just one small example. Sonically, visually, and tactilely, owning a 2018 Gibson Custom Historic Les Paul Standard is as close as one can get to owning a priceless original. Available in four beautiful sunburst variations in Gloss or VOS (vintage patina, shown) finishes. Left-handed models available as well.
