Gibson Les Paul Standard 1960 50th Anniversary V1 Gold Book Limited Run of 500


    This is a true collectors piece, a 1960 50th Anniversary with Goldbook and a nice tobacco finish. This is the Version One or V1, so it has the 1959 specs. Very good condition with some finishwear light finishwear. Comes with COA and original case.

    The 1960 Les Paul reissue is true to all of the original guitar's features and characteristics, including Gibson's traditional hand-carved figured maple top and solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body. The headstock is crafted from holly head veneer, as opposed to fiber, just as it was in 1960. The vintage-style tulip tuners are mounted in a straight line, also as they were on the original guitar. Gibson Custom presents this fabulous Les Paul reissue guitar in a gorgeous Tobacco finish.

    The 24-3/4" scale neck is made from one solid piece of mahogany and attached to the guitar body using a long neck tenon—one of the 1950s Les Paul's more distinguishing characteristics. The neck is topped by a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard outfitted with acrylic trapezoid inlays matching the size and color of the originals.

    Classic Patent Applied For humbucker tone by using historically "unmatched" bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets. Other historical appointments include CTS potentiometers, bumble bee capacitors, rolled crème-colored fingerboard binding, single-ply crème-colored binding around the body, and a period-correct thin toggleswitch washer and jackplate.
