The latest in the evolution of Gibson Custom Historic Reissue guitars represents a fine-grain attention to detail. From the scientific analysis of materials to determine their original formulations, to the hands-on study of countless vintage Gibson guitars and their nuances, the commitment to getting everything right is exhaustive. Once again using all available resources including the vintage community, players, and original engineering data, Gibson Custom started with the simple assumption that nothing was impossible and everything must be explored.
True Historic guitars feature re-formulated plastics based on lab analysis of original parts that were provided for study by the vintage guitar community. Each part has been recreated with the sole purpose of being exactly the right color, made from the right materials, and to look, feel, and perform as if they were plucked from an original 1950's Gibson guitar. Even the tooling marks and original part numbers are recreated.
Over the decades, the way a guitar is built has changed. Processes changed with materials as efficiencies were discovered, and the evolution of machinery moved some skills out of the hands of craftspeople. Gibson Custom has introduced several key processes and re-trained selected team members in order to handle the challenge of recreating the most accurate reissues ever. Getting every detail right adds time and labor to each guitar, but the goal has never been to see how fast or efficiently a Historic Reissue can be made. With True Historic, the concept of efficiency isn't a luxury that can be afforded - not when the goal is to recreate the world's most sought after electric guitars down to a level so meticulous that it borders on forgery.
With the True Historic range, Gibson Custom commits to a fanatic level of detail accuracy to bring you as close as possible to owning an original 1959 Gibson Les Paul. A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1959 Les Paul's offered. Add a pair of superbly accurate Custom Bucker pickups, re-created from precise study and measurement of original PAFs, and that legendary Burst tone is all there. You simply can't get closer to the real thing... than the real thing.
