The Gibson CS9 is an updated interpretation of the classic 1959 Les Paul model with its most coveted burst finish. The CS9 is an iconic axe with new VOS appointments which takes the 1959 original to dizzy new heights. The CS9 50s Style LP Standard has the vintage tone and feel like its ancestors and your collection will be all the better if you choose to add this classic to it.


The CS9, much like its counterpart from the 50s, features a non-weight relief solid mahogany body as authentic as the original model. Back in 1959 when this first came about, manufacturing was a very different process at Gibson, however the implementation of a solid mahogany body ensures your guitar kicks out an almighty sound full of resonance.

The body top is crafted with figured maple wood which truly enhances the 1950s tone of this guitar. With a stunning burst finish and 50s cream binding, you just know that the CS9 Les Paul is perfectly vintage in both sound and appearance.


The single-piece mahogany neck is fitted to the body with a classic Mortis and Tenon joint which is further secured using hide glue, which many believe to be a better adhesive as it hardens more and more as time goes on, making for a strong and reliable playing experience. As the 2016 CS9 is a remake of a 1950s model, it’s only right that it has a 50s style Les Paul neck profile which is firmly attached to the guitar via a traditional Mortise and Tenon joint.

Married to the mahogany neck is a 22-fret solid Indian Rosewood fingerboard adorned with Nitrocellulose Trapezoid inlays to guide you up and down the frets with ease.

To the top of the guitar at the headstock are Reissue Kluson Deluxe Green single band tuning keys which fit both the colour and performance specifications of the original and work to a 12:1 gear ratio.


To give the CS9 its supreme tone and sound, Gibson have kitted it out with two exceptional Alnico III Custom Bucker pickups. The Custom Buckers reinvent the PAF 50s chiming sounds that guitarists talk of when they’re thinking about a true Les Paul model. It would be fair to say that the Custom Buckers are the most accurate copies of the original PAF pickups in history, so every note will have a vintage feel.

The lower part of the body is also equipped with a nickel-plated ABR bridge with thumbwheels which contribute to a richer tone and great sustain.

Gibson have finished this guitar with a delicate hand-applied lacquer which is made to stand the test of time and grow with its owner. The CS9 Les Paul will sound unique for years to come and deserves to be well looked after. To help you do that, it is supplied with a sturdy Gibson Reissue Brown case which has a solid outer with a plush, pink fur lined interior to provide protection when on the road.
