In 1958, Gibson parted ways with the gold finish on the Les Paul Model and introduced the “Les Paul Standard,”
a refresh that featured a center-seam maple top, red aniline dye back and sides, and a beautiful transparent
Cherry Sunburst finish. While only that one color was available originally, exposure to sunlight and subtle
variations have made each original example unique in color. Gibson Custom picked four beautiful sunburst
variations for the new 2018 Historic Collection, each bringing out all the character of the unique maple tops.
And just like the 1958 originals, the neck profiles on these Historic models are just a bit beefier on average
when compared to a 1959 – a comfortable chunky C-shape. Two new updates for 2018 include the inclusion of
all True Historic-spec parts and, for the first time, narrow/tall frets which bring the tone and playability closer to
the character of the originals.
