Gibson's Custom Shop division produces some of the finest electric guitars in the world. And to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary 1960 Les Paul, Gibson has unveiled 6 highly-limited guitars that faithfully adhere to the classic '60 formula. However, there were three distinct versions of the 1960 Les Paul, with subtle changes made to the instrument throughout its original production run.
This particular model captures the spirit of the V1, which was known for following the same specifications of the iconic 1959 Les Paul. Featuring an authentic medium C-shaped '59 neck for that genuine feel, this guitar also comes equipped with vintage-voiced Gibson Custombucker Alnico III pickups that project a rich and powerful tone.
