Overview

The Les Paul Standards made by Gibson between 1958 and the end of 1960 represent the very pinnacle of American electric guitar craft and rank as the most collectable vintage guitars on the market. These years were the only ones where the Les Paul Standard was built with a flamed maple top with a cherry sunburst finish, a stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, as well as a pair of PAF humbuckers. An estimated 1700 of the mythical "Burst" Les Pauls still exist today -- find yours on Reverb.
