The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. The True Historic 1958 Les Paul Standard was the first year of the now famous Sunburst finish. While there was only one "Burst" on the price list, Cherry Sunburst, time and light have since created as many different finishes as originals, as aniline dye and nitro cellulose are light sensitive, causing them to fade. Just like an original 1958 Les Paul, the neck profile on the True Historic '58 is just a bit beefier on average when compared to a 1959. Rendered in the fine detail inherent to all True Historic Models, this is our most thoroughly convincing replica of the 'Burst that started it all.
