Epiphone has teamed up with the Gibson Custom Shop for a new ’59 Les Paul model with Gibson USA Burstbucker pickups, long neck tenon, CTS pots, and ’50s-era wiring. The guitar was announced during Winter NAMM, but is just now starting to hit dealers worldwide.

You can now pre-order the very first Epiphone model made in collaboration with the Gibson Custom Shop! This new ’59 Les Paul comes loaded with a set of Gibson USA Burstbucker pickups, long neck tenon, CTS pots, and proper ’50s-era wiring, making it one hell of a bargain. The guitar is available in a beautiful Aged Dark Burst or Aged Dark Cherry Burst finish.

Limited Edition

Since it is a limited edition model, don’t hang around too long if you want one, as I can see these selling like hot cakes. Especially at this price point. The guitar has a mahogany body with a maple top and a AAA figured maple veneer, paired with a mahogany neck with a vintage correct long neck tenon. The neck has a ’59 Rounded “C” profile, and an Indian Laurel fretboard with a 12″ radius and 22 medium jumbo frets. The specs aren’t exactly like a true ’59 Les Paul (no rosewood fretboard and maple veneer), but for this price, it’s close enough. Especially with those BurstBucker 2 and 3 humbuckers and quality wiring loom.

With the recent announcement of the new signature Black Beauty Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Custom, I think Epiphone is on a roll with these new guitars, and I expect them to sell pretty well.

      Apparently, left-handed guitarists don’t exist. So I wouldn’t hold your breath on this one…
