Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard M2M Highgloss · Electric Guitar

This Gibson Les Paul 1959 Standard Historic is a MTM model. MTM means Made 2 Measure which means that the guitar is a custom-made instrument and, if necessary, has non-standard features. In this case, the top is hand-picked and the finish is HighGloss.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Historic series replaces the CS series and almost corresponds to the 2014 Historic Series. This means that everything that makes the 2013/2014 models so popular and successful (including Long Neck Tenon), is on board.

The current features include

  • No rubber hose around the truss rod
  • The body back and sides are dyed with historically correct aniline color
  • The colouring of the Goldtops (Top & Back) is historically correct
  • The colouring of the neck and body binding is historically correct
  • The Kluson mechanics are more authentic
  • The guitars are equipped with Gibson Custom Buckers

Gibson Custom Shop
The Gibson Custom Shop was founded in 1993 with only five employees. Initially the purpose was to take care of individual orders, the endorser and special models.
The Custom Shop's first spectacular action was the revision of the '59 and '60 Les Paul Flametop Reissues. A lot of changes were to be made, to make the reissue as authentic and close to the old originals as possible.
Today around 80 experts are working at the Custom Shop, who cover all areas ranging from "one-off" instruments to limited runs and R&D.
