Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 2004 Gibson Les Paul 1959 VOS! This LP almost didn't make it to the sales floor. Every once in a while a guitar comes in that we all wrestle and drool over ( no, not literally ). We've all had to take a minute or two out of our busy day to rip a lick on this R9 because it's just one of those guitars that can't help but become the talk of the room. There is a reason that the 1959 Les Paul is considered the best and most coveted guitar of all time.  Lucky for you, this fine reissue made it through the process and now it is officially for sale. The playability is just as smooth as you could ever imagine. The tone is full and snarling. This axe loves to be played loud and it can't get enough dirt in the signal. It's not afraid of anything. Played clean it has a very warm and full tone with just the right amount of bite on the top. 

Item Details

This 2004 Gibson Les Paul 1959 reissue VOS is all original and finished in one of the warmest finishes we have seen in a while - Heritage Cherry Sunburst. The flame maple top walks a fine line between striking and understated with some great character to the grain without being too flashy looking. Look closely at the rosewood fretboard and notice the darker streaks running through it. This neck is a work of art and the '59 profile couldn't be more comfortable to play. With a set of Gibson Burstbucker pickups, you can count on this axe to always put out the warmest and clearest tones possible. Other standout features include Bumblebee caps, an ABR-1 bridge, trapezoid inlays, Gibson deluxe tuners, aged binding and switch tip and a Gibson hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 2004 Gibson Les Paul '59 Historic Reissue is in very good condition. There are some light impressions on the top between the pickups and some smaller impressions on the body. The neck is clean and the frets are in excellent condition. The pickguard is missing.

This is a tremendous '59 reissue Les Paul. The tone is magnificent and the feel is practically unbeatable. This is top shelf guitar work.
