In 1960 the Les Paul had not quite completed it's transition to the slimmer Standard model, this is the full fat version with creamy tone and endless sustain. This Version 2 does have a slightly thinner neck and nails the classic "elliptical" profile.

Gibson 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard (Light Iced Tea Burst)

It might seem laughable, even absurd, that the guitar world’s failure to appreciate the original Les Paul would lead to its deletion from the Gibson line up after 1960, but so it often goes with creations that are so far ahead of their time. Just a few years later, scores of groundbreaking artists would discover the incomparable power of this instrument, and its premature scarcity would also make it an extremely valuable guitar while the model was really still just a toddler, thus rendering it the first collectible “vintage” electric guitar.

Fast forward 50 years, and the Les Paul of 1958-’60 has become the most prized electric guitar on the planet. But to say “the” Les Paul is actually somewhat misleading: while all of the fewer than 2,000 Les Pauls manufactured in this brief three-year timeframe are exceedingly desirable, they were often quite different guitars, too, varying not only from year to year as the model’s specs evolved, but varying even within the same year of manufacture.

None embodies this “work in progress” so completely as the final issue of the line, the 1960 Les Paul Standard—or, should we say “Standards”—now brought back to life in the Custom Shop 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standards. To accurately present the variations in specifications and finish that original examples from 1960 exhibit, Gibson’s Custom Shop is creating this limited Anniversary model in three versions, each of which embodies in period-correct detail the final three steps along the journey before this hallowed electric guitar was pulled from production.

  • Burstbucker Pickups
  • 1960's Neck (.8/.925)
  • Scale Length 24 3/4"
  • Comes with case with Maroon Crushed Velvet interior.

    Price Matching

    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.

    Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

    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.).

    Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

    If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

    The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

    Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

    Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
