1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst
An early 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst guitar and original hardshell case.
Bigsby vibrato with plastic inserts covering the stop tailpiece inserts. Usually these
inserts would be Pearl (if factory or dealer installed). On this guitar they appear to be
old Gibson guitar picks cut to cover the inserts! I suspect this was a dealer installed unit.
The red in this sunburst finish is fading to a rust color, but is still quite vibrant.
This early 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard has small frets and a "double white" humbucker
pickup in the neck position (serial number 9 06xx). Also has significant "stripes" or
figure in the maple, giving the guitar a very nice visual effect.
