Show full description »

From the scientific analysis of materials to determine their original formulations, to the hands-on study of countless vintage Gibson guitars and their nuances, the commitment to getting everything right is exhaustive. Once again using all available resources including the vintage community, players, and original engineering data, Gibson Custom started with the simple assumption that nothing was impossible and everything must be explored.

True Historic guitars feature re-formulated plastics based on lab analysis of original parts that were provided for study by the vintage guitar community. Each part has been recreated with the sole purpose of being exactly the right color, made from the right materials, and to look, feel, and perform as if they were plucked from an original 1950's Gibson guitar. Even the tooling marks and original part numbers are recreated.

Over the decades, the way a guitar is built has changed. Processes changed with materials as efficiencies were discovered, and the evolution of machinery moved some skills out of the hands of craftspeople. Gibson Custom has introduced several key processes and re-trained selected team members in order to handle the challenge of recreating the most accurate reissues ever. Getting every detail right adds time and labor to each guitar, but the goal has never been to see how fast or efficiently a Historic Reissue can be made. With True Historic, the concept of efficiency isn't a luxury that can be afforded - not when the goal is to recreate the world's most sought after electric guitars down to a level so meticulous that it borders on forgery.

Among all the advances made since the Historic program was initiated in 1993, nothing represents the kind of quantum leap forward of the new 2015 True Historic range. Fanatic new levels of detail accuracy have inspired a total re-tooling and re-training at Gibson Custom, delivering the authentic ownership experience that places the beauty, feel, and tone of an original 1950s Gibson in your hands. Produced in very limited numbers, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom benefits from molecular-level analysis of original vintage plastics to achieve uncanny precision in its characteristic multi-ply binding, inlays and appointments. A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding and other exacting details bring you closer to the real thing than ever before.

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).
