The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard supplies all the hallmarks of the unforgettable ’59 Gibson — the figured AAA maple top, that lean and mean late-’50s neck profile, and those crystal-clear Gibson PAF pickups — at an irresistible price. And take it from guitarists: this thing really delivers. Whether you’ve always wanted a true ’59 and didn’t want to fork over the cash, or even if you’re a proud collector and just want an instrument to take out on the road, the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard has the looks and features you’ve been searching for. 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, 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 AAA flame maple cap boasts a rich natural figuring and imparts a snappy tonal quality to the rich, resonant, full-weight mahogany body. The 24.75-inch-scale mahogany neck sports the slimmed-down medium “C” profile reminiscent of true ’59s, along with the 12-inch 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 us: 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-plus looks.
