Solid mahogany and maple tonewoods. A "VOS-like" aged gloss finish. Premium pots and hardware. It's all here in the ready-to-rock Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard from Music Experience. No upgrades required.

Premier tonewoods, head to toe

The late-'50s Les Paul recipe is maple on mahogany. And that's exactly what you get in the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard. The solid maple top with AAA flame maple veneer boasts a rich natural figuring and imparts a snappy tonal quality to the rich, resonant, full-weight mahogany body. The 24.75"-scale mahogany neck sports the slimmed-down medium "C" profile reminiscent of true '59s, along with the 12" radius and medium-jumbo frets these guitars are known for.

Gibson pickups with premium pots and caps

1959 was the year Gibson really dialed in the response of its Seth Lover PAF ("Patent Applied For") pickups. Nowhere is this sound better captured than in Gibson's USA-made Burstbucker pickups. The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard comes stock with a set of these sought-after beauties wired into a set of Mallory 150 polyester film caps, with CTS pots and a Switchcraft toggle and jack to supply years of proven performance. Take it from Music Experience: this is no "mod platform" Les Paul. It comes stock with Grade A choice components straight out the Gibson Custom Shop, for plug-in ready rock and blues tones that even Gibson historians will dig.

"VOS-like" aged finish

A true first for an Epiphone, the 1959 Les Paul Standard sports an aged gloss finish that is similar in feel and appearance to the Vintage Original Spec finishes of today's American-made Gibsons. '50s-correct non-beveled plastics and a back "Custom Shop" Epiphone badge add to this axe's A+ looks.
