The 1959 Les Paul features a Flame Maple top, which has been hand selected for beauty and tone, delivering clarity and warmth. This stunning top is paired and beautifully contrasted with a solid mahogany body, which blends depth and richness with the snap and clarity of the Maple top. This one-piece mahogany body has been especially selected for its lightweight properties, weighing a total of 7 lbs 8 oz.

The quarter-sawn 1-piece Mahogany neck provides a smooth,rounded 50s Les Paul profile which combined with the traditional long-tenon neck joint with the hot-hide glue neck fit, enhances both sustain and resonance while also ensuring comfortable playability.

These include a one-piece Rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye beneath its nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
