Sporting the exact same specification of the 1957 original Les Paul standard guitar, this painstakingly replicated model is the closest you will get bar from popping into a time machine and getting your hands on an original.
The introduction of Gibsons pioneering PAF humbucker was what really rocketed this model to world fame and has been an industry standard guitar ever since. With the invention of these pickups, incredible high-power tones were achievable without interference or noise.
The body of the 1957 Les Paul Reissueis crafted using a single piece of mahogany that contains no weight-relief to have it feel just like the original. This is garnished with a maple top finished in a beautiful candy apple blue.
The early 50s profile, singlie-piece mahogany neck comes complete with a rosewood fingerboard containing 22 Frets, Trapez inlays so the experience of playing this wonderful guitar is identical to how it was circa 60 years ago.
Add to this those hum cancelling PAF humbuckers with Alnico III magnets we mentioned earlier and you have a guitar that has it all, legendary sound, drop dead gorgeous looks and total comfort.
Other key features of the 1957 reissue include a chunky 50s profile neck with a fast, one-piece rosewood fretboard containing trapezoid inlays, bumblebee tone-caps to control tone and volume on each pickup independently and Kluson tuning machines. Put all this together and you have a legend from the past available for you to treasure forever, the 1957 Gibson Les Paul reissue.
