The Gibson Custom Shop 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a limited edition electric guitar that was released in 2020 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic 1960 Les Paul Standard. This particular model is Chicago Music Exchange Spec (CME), indicating a special collaboration between Gibson and CME in the crafting and creating of this wonderful guitar.
The 1960 Les Paul Standard is a legendary guitar that was played by countless rock icons, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Duane Allman. The guitar's unique features, such as its slim neck profile and Custombucker pickups, helped to define the sound of rock music for decades to come.
The guitar is a faithful recreation of the original 1960 model, with all of the same features and specifications that made the original so popular. The guitar features a two-piece maple top, a one-piece lightweight mahogany back, and a one-piece mahogany neck with a slim taper profile and a rosewood fingerboard.
The guitar is equipped with Gibson's Custom 'S' Buckers, which are designed to capture the warm, vintage tone of the original PAF humbuckers. The guitar also features a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece, vintage-style tulip tuners, and nickel hardware.
The Bourbon Burst finish on the guitar is a stunning combination of a rich, dark brown with a lighter brown/yellow hue on the top. The guitar's finish is hand-sprayed.
