“The Gibson people set to work in an attempt to replicate more closely than ever the magic of an original sunburst Standard…The ‘new’ Reissue would have more accurate body carving, the smaller-size vintage-style headstock, a re-tooled fat neck profile, holly veneer for the headstock face with a silkscreened logo, the most attractive figured maple for the top, a slight reduction in neck pitch, proper routing of the control cavity, and early-style Tune-o-matic bridge, and the reinstatement of a longer, wider neck tenon or ‘tongue’ at the neck/’body joint.” (Tony Bacon, 50 Years of the Gibson® Les Paul, pp. 100-101).
“As close to an original ’60 as you can get in a sought-after historically correct color”
“The Gibson Custom Shop “GC 60” Les Paul Plain Top reissue is a beautiful Les Paul that you’ll want in your collection. In 1960, the Les Paul Standard still had the carved maple top with burst finish and the PAF pickups of its 1958 and 1959 predecessors with an added slim taper neck for a decidedly different feel. This 1960 Reissue Les Paul captures the essence of the original guitar accurately and in great detail.
The one-piece mahogany neck is topped with a gorgeous rosewood fretboard that’s adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays with shape and color true to the original. 1957 PAF Reissue pickups and the ‘bumblebee’ capacitors deliver that famous vintage Les Paul tone.
As if that weren’t enough, this Limited Edition features the highly sought after, historically correct ‘Lemonburst’ or ‘Darkburst’ finish. With the plain top, you really get the full effect of these rich, gorgeous colors. Gibson’s Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibson Les Pauls of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best”.
