Gibson 2022 Custom Shop 1959 Reissue Les Paul Standard (R9) – Washed Cherry – $12,500

Brand new, just arrived from the US: Gibson 2022 Custom Shop 1959 Reissue Les Paul Standard (R9) in Washed Cherry. 

Gibson Custom Shop’s 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is not just a tribute to the priceless original models — it’s a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by Custom Shop’s expert team — a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s the definition of cool, and it’s the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago.
