The Bolivian Sunburst VOS blast in honor of the iconic past!

Sure, the original Gibson Les Paul ‘59 started slow (fewer than 650 original ‘59 Les Pauls were ultimately created). Then came the resurgence that rocked the world and elsewhere, extreme sonic versatility, bending wildly but not breaking in the hands of the likes of iconic Eric “Slow Hand” Clapton and Mike Bloomfield, followed by the iconic wave of axemen to stoke the Gibson Les Paul fire to legendary heights: Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Jimmy Page, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry and Slash among many other world-famous players.

Billy Gibbons once said, “The Blues is a mighty long road. Or it could be a river, one that twists and turns and flows into a sea of limitless musical potential.” The same could be said of the Gibson Les Paul ‘59 and its custom shop recreations’ iconic role in rock history. The legacy remains; True Historic style!
