The Music Zoo is incredibly happy to offer the brand-new Gibson Custom Shop 2014 Limited Edition 1960 Les Paul Reissue.
This 2014 Reissue features such as underwound Custom Bucker Pickups as well as TonePros long posts and studs. As getting modern humbuckers as close to the original PAF pickups are the bane of any Les Paul aficionados existence (including ours), we really wanted to nail that bell-like (almost single coil- esque) clarity of the original '50s pickups. We found that under-winding the pickup gave us exactly what we were looking for; a lush wave of overtones that really bring out the best of every note in your playing. As guitarists who have played original Les Pauls with real-deal PAF's - we can say for sure that these are up there with some of the best recreations we've ever heard.
Next up, we gave the guitar TonePros long studs and posts; because it seemed to just make sense. The bridge and tailpiece are where all the guitars sustain comes from - why not have the posts and studs really anchoredin there for the tightest connection possible? You hear the difference with one strum. Lastly, we brought back the Version 2 neck shape from the 50th Anniversary run of '60 Les Pauls with measurements of .8/.925" - it's got the shoulders of a '59 with less of a "belly" in between. It's the perfect fit, if you ask us.
