Gibson Custom Shop 59 Les Paul STD - Royal Tea Burst - VOS NH

Gibson Custom Shop's 1959 Les Paul™ Standard Reissue is not just a tribute to the priceless original models -- it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop's expert team -- a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s the definition of cool, and it's the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago. 

Guitar weight: 3.86Kg

What makes this guitar even more special?
Than a Custom Shop 59'

  1. Custom Colour: We managed to secure an incredible custom colour. Normally this guitar is only offered in Lemon, Ice Tea Burst and Cherry Sunburst. 
  2. Hand picked wood: We hand picked the wood used for each 59 and the colour to go with each top

The 59 Gibson Les Paul holds a special place in the world of electric guitars for several key reasons:

  1. Iconic Sound: The '59 Les Paul is renowned for its rich, warm, and versatile tone, thanks to its unique combination of woods, construction, and PAF (Patent Applied For) humbucking pickups. These pickups are celebrated for their ability to produce both clear, crisp tones and deep, growling overdrive, making the guitar extremely versatile. These Custom shop 59's have the improved Custombuckers in them.

  2. Quality Craftsmanship: These 59 models were built with exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. They featured a solid, non-weight-relieved mahogany body with a two-piece figured maple top, a one-piece mahogany neck, and a rosewood fretboard. This combination of high-quality materials contributed to the guitar’s distinctive sound and sustain.

  3. Unique Aesthetics: The '59 Les Pauls are known for their sunburst finishes, which have become iconic in their own right. The figuring of the maple tops (often referred to as "flame" or "tiger stripe") on these guitars makes each one unique.

  4. Historical Significance: By the late 1950s, the Les Paul had evolved into what many consider the definitive version of the model. The '59 Les Paul represents the peak of this evolution before Gibson made significant changes to the design in 1961. As such, it stands as a historical benchmark for electric guitar design.

  5. Legacy and Influence: The '59 Les Paul has been played by a myriad of famous guitarists and has been a staple in creating the sound of classic rock. It has a legendary status among musicians, often considered the holy grail of electric guitars.

This wood set was virtually picked by Musos Corner staff from the Gibson factory in September 2022. Completion date is estimated for 2023/2024. The build specifications are listed below.


The Custombucker Pickups

The Gibson Custombucker is the epitome of vintage tone for discerning players. Used on Gibson Custom Shop's Historic Reissue guitars, these pickups replicate the legendary Patent Applied For humbuckers from the 50s with painstaking accuracy. Featuring Alnico 3 magnets, unbalanced coils, and 42 AWG wire, these pickups are left unpotted for an authentic vintage sound that is warm and sweet. The double black bobbins and true historic nickel covers add to their authentic appearance. With an average DC resistance of 8K, these pickups are historically accurate and deliver the iconic tone that players crave. The pickups alone in this guitar retail over $1000.

The Legendary 59 Neck

The '59 neck profile is sought after by players for its comfortable and medium chunky design, making it the classic profile that a lot of other guitars have been modelled on.

What's special about each year?

The Gibson Les Paul guitars produced between 1956 and 1960 are often referred to as the "Golden Era" of Les Paul production. Each year brought some changes and differences in features, specs, and finishes. Here are some of the notable differences:


P-90 pickups (single coil) were still the standard pickup configuration, though some Les Paul Customs had three humbucker pickups. Stopbar tailpiece and ABR-1 bridge were still used. A "Goldtop" finish was the only finish option.


PAF (Patent Applied For) humbucking pickups were introduced, replacing the P-90 pickups. Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece were now standard. Sunburst finish (referred to as "burst") was introduced, with a two-tone finish of dark brown around the edges and a lighter brown/yellow in the center.


Cherry Sunburst finish became the standard finish option. The neck profile became slimmer and referred to as a "Slim Taper." The body shape became slightly thinner and the top carve was shallower.


Often considered the pinnacle of the Les Paul model, featuring a thicker top with more flame figuring. The neck profile became even slimmer and more rounded, often referred to as a "59 Neck". The fingerboard received a more elaborate and wider block inlay design. 


The last year of the "Burst" Les Pauls before production was temporarily discontinued. The neck profile became even slimmer and flatter, referred to as a "Slim Taper" or "Fast Neck". The body shape was further slimmed down and the top carve was even shallower. A Cherry Red finish was introduced as a standard option, along with the Cherry Sunburst.

Gibson Guitars at Musos Corner

Musos Corner is proud to be an authorised retailer and service agent of Gibson instruments and musical equipment.

Gibson is one of the most recognised and iconic names in music history. 

Orville Gibson began building instruments in 1894 and founded the company in 1902 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Gibson invented the arch top guitar by copying violin construction and by the 1930’s the company was building flat top acoustics.

Early jazz guitar pioneers such as Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery used Gibson archtop models such as the ES150 and L5 to shape their sound.

Many blues, folk, country and rockabilly legends such as Elvis (SJ-200), Robert Johnson (L-00), James Taylor (J-50), Bob Dylan (SJ-200), Everly Brothers (J-180) and Emmy Lou Harris (SJ-200) used Gibson acoustics at the pinnacle of their careers.

Iconic electric models such as the Les Paul first released in 1952 and the SG in 1961 are two of the most recognisable guitars on the planet being put to good use by guitar gods Les Paul himself, Angus Young, Jimmy Page, Slash, Ace Freely and Eric Clapton (pre 1970) 

Musos Corner can source and supply the entire Gibson product range, from coveted Gibson custom shop models to the great value Epiphone range.

Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it as Australia is a big country. Insurance / Shipping protection is available and is only 1.5% of the value of the goods.

Can I pick my goods up in store?    
Of course! Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready. Orders that are left for over 1 week and not picked up will be returned to stock, unless other arrangements have been made. Valid ID will be required for picking up goods that have been paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not home for the delivery?
IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

Send to a PO BOX?
We cannot ship guitars to a PO BOX under any circumstances. Australia Post will not accept deliveries over 105cm LCM, we cannot change their policy.


Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars come fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping. Digitial pianos and clavinovas may require some simple assembly.

Are all products brand new?
Yes! Everything we sell, unless clearly specified, is considered brand new with full warranty. Some items, especially guitars will have been taken out of their boxes for inspection, demonstration or quality assurance. This in no way effects your warranty supplied to you by Musos Corner or Australian consumer law.

Are the items individually photographed?
All images are for illustration purposes unless otherwise specified. While we wish we could take photos of every exact item, this is not always possible and we use the pictures supplied by either the a) Australian Supplier or b) Manufacturer. 
If you require a specialty photo of your instrument prior to purchase, just contact us to see if this is available.

Does my item come with Australian warranty
All items we sell come with Australian Warranty, please read our returns policy fo rmore information.
