The 1959 sunburst Gibson Les Paul Standard electric guitar has a special place in the history of rock 'n' roll.

An article about the model posted on the Gibson website explained that the likes of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons have their own much-loved versions of the musical instrument.

It went on to note that Don Felder of The Eagles was another to make use of the Les Paul of this era, employing it for all his solos on their seminal Hotel California album, including the one on the famous title track.

"Because of that solo's influence, Felder's Les Paul earns the distinction of being probably the most air-guitared '59 Les Paul in history," the Gibson site explained.

One person who has recently helped designed his own signature Gibson Les Paul recently is Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, who decided on a model that stays true to the conventions of the famous musical instrument.
