Devoted fans of late '50s Les Pauls understand the subtle ways in which these guitars' woods, carves and finishes can vary, and love them all the more for their fascinating differences. The '59 Les Paul Factory Burst from Gibson Custom captures the essence of a few of the Custom Shop's favorite examples of original '59 Bursts, recreated in loving detail and presented in two exclusive VOS finishes, in a strictly limited run of 200 guitars (100 per finish).

Gibson '59 Les Paul Factory - Cherry Burst

The first things you're likely to notice about the '59 Les Paul Factory Burst are the stunning woods and authentic finish and coloring. As with any great and vintage-correct Les Paul, the '59 Les Paul Factory Burst has the legendary mahogany/maple tonewood combination at its core. In this case, a weight-selected, unchambered, one-piece mahogany back is married to a hand-selected, premium-figured maple top, to capture the look of the most desirable Les Pauls ever built, as well as the tone that made these guitars legendary in the first place. The top carves on '50s Les Pauls could vary considerably, so to match the carved arch on one of the factory's favorite original '59s, Gibson Custom gives the '59 Les Paul Factory Burst a special "flat" dish carve, which is shallower than that of many other examples.

The '59 Les Paul Factory Burst takes its visual splendor right through to superlative tone via two different pairs of reproduction PAF pickups, selected by the Gibson Custom Shop to represent the variations in original Les Pauls. The guitars finished in Factory Cherry Burst carry '57 Classics with zebra coils under VOS-aged nickel covers, while the Factory Dark Burst guitars have Custom Buckers with VOS-aged nickel covers. Both sets of pickups are made to the specs of legendary original PAF humbuckers, with genuine Alnico magnets and coils wound from 42-AWG wire. As a result, they present all the rich warmth and sparkling harmonics of great vintage humbuckers, with that characteristically soft, yet cutting, bite of original PAFs.

    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.
