1959 epiphone less paul

Classic 50s appointments: “baseball bat” neck, premium AAA grade flame Maple veneer top and much more. Only 1,959 available worldwide.

The History
Most guitar historians and collectors consider the 1959 Les Paul Standard, the “holy grail” of Les Paul’s – not to mention of all electric guitars.  Although the only significant change made in that year was to flatter, wider frets that allowed more dramatic bends, the impact of that change was not truly realized until the 1960’s when countless rock and blues players discovered the magical fat, warm voice and feel of the Les Paul Standard.  To commemorate this classic instrument, Epiphone introduces the new Limited Edition “1959” Les Paul Standard.

Epiphone significantly “steps it up” on this Limited Edition “1959” reissue. True to it’s heritage, the neck features an authentic, 1950’s rounded neck profile. Often referred to as “the baseball bat”, this neck feels beefy yet comfortable in your hands while adding warmth and sustain with it’s greater mass. Epiphone hand fits this solid Mahogany neck into the body with an historically accurate “deep-set” long neck tenon that extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating even more tone and sustain.

Other unique features of this “1959” include a Switchcraft brand toggle switch, Mallory-150 tone capacitors, amber “top hat” knobs with metal pointers, nickel hardware, a blank trussrod cover and a “stamped” serial number on the back of the headstock.

Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul with Piezo

Taking the best from today’s advancements in guitar technology, the Les Paul Piezo has been armed with L.R. Baggs’ best-selling piezo bridge and a pair of the ever popular active EMG 85’s. Top metal guitarists favor this choice in pickups for its crystal-clear soloing capabilities and inexhaustible variety of tones, while the piezo saddles offer the ability to quickly tap realistic acoustic-like tones on stage or in the studio—or to blend magnetic and acoustic outputs for a near-fathomless array of tones.
