2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard 1959 Historic Reissue JOE PERRY Murphy Aged Custom LP
A Historic Les Paul with a Vintage Look!
The Gibson Custom ’59 Les Paul Joe Perry is based on a very special Les Paul that’s been owned by some of the most iconic guitarists in history. The original was owned by Joe Perry, then Eric Johnson, and finally Slash, before Slash returned it to Joe Perry for his 50th birthday. This ’59 Les Paul Joe Perry is built to the exacting specs of the ’50s original, and has been aged by master luthier Tom Murphy for a vintage look. More than a piece of rock ’n‘ roll history, the Gibson Custom ’59 Les Paul Joe Perry plays and sounds amazing.

The rebirth of a legendary Les Paul
The original ’59 Les Paul Standard guitar established the Les Paul as a staple of the rock-music world. Although Gibson only shipped about 640 Les Paul Standards in 1959, by the mid ’60s, their new slimmer profile neck and transparent finish (a major departure from the Goldtop) caught the attention of a whole new generation of musicians. When you pick up the Gibson Custom ’59 Les Paul Joe Perry, you can imagine how Keith Richards or Eric Clapton felt, trekking through a whole new territory of undiscovered tone.
Gibson Custom’s commitment to quality
Gibson’s Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the ’59 Les Paul Joe Perry. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a „“just right““ feel. And little touches like the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ’59 Les Paul as well as Gibson’s history.
