GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP '59 LES PAUL STANDARD REISSUE MADE 2 MEASURE SLOW ICED TEA FADE BURST
We were able to take a trip to the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville to pick out some guitars and to select wood for future Made 2 Measure builds! This is one of the guitars we spec'd out with wood we selected.
It starts out with the timeless 1959 Les Paul Reissue. We opted for super lightweight mahogany. The guitar is an incredible 7.95 pounds. Historic spec Les Pauls under 8 pounds are extremely rare.
We spent hours sorting through maple tops to find this one. Floaty, and patchy with tremendous 'movement' as you turn the guitar in the light. We opted for a classic '59 combo of faded colours. Gibson Custom Shop nailed it with this Slow Iced Tea Fade Burst.
The guitar features Alnico 3 Custombuckers in both positions. Another little touch we like is Zebra coil pickups. These are Zebra under the nickel covers so you can choose to leave the covers on or expose one or both for that 'modded' look players like Jimmy Page loved so much.
We couldn't be happier with this M2M beauty!
Includes Gibson Hardshell Case.
