2019 Gibson 60th Anniversary Les Paul 1959 R9 Reissue Kindred Burst Slash Duncan APH-2S
Here's a really sweet piece for the Slash and Joe Perry fans out there. This 2019 60th R9 finished in Kindred Burst was just traded back into the shop and is outfitted with a set of Seymour Duncan Slash Signature APH-2S pickups. We're also including the original Gibson Custom buckers ad well. This guitar has it all the killer top, tone, and weight. She's free of any major player wear and I'd rate a solid 9.5 out of 10 condition wise. The guitar ships with all of its case candy, COA, original Gibson Custom Buckers and its OHSC. Don't wait on this one as it won't be here for long.

As per Seymour Duncan:
The classic tone of Appetite for Destruction in a pickup.
When Slash was given the honor of having a Gibson Les Paul Signature model built, we sent over the same Alnico 2 Pro humbuckers that he has used for decades. Turns out, the new guitars sounded noticeably different than the original. So we accepted the challenge to make him a new pickup that would make all of his new signature guitars sound just like the original AFD Les Paul. The result is the Slash Signature Model humbucker. We used a different mag wire and winding spec, that, when combined with the alnico 2 bar magnet, provided exactly what was needed to push a stock Les Paul toward that familiar sustain, crunch, and midrange that was so characteristic of the tone of Slash’s original Derrig Les Paul copy.The Slash humbucker set is hand built in Santa Barbara the same way we built his originals in the 80s, using a nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs, single conductor braided lead wire, maple spacer, paper tape, and wax potting.

60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard
The Most Desirable Guitar Ever Made Celebrates Its 60th Anniversary.
No specific Gibson model carries more intrigue and gravitas than the 1959 Les Paul Standard. It wasn't a successful model when it was released (under 650 were made) but before long it was adopted by some of the world's greatest guitarists -- Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, and Billy Gibbons, to name a few.
The instrument was simply enchanting, from its beautiful figured maple top to its extreme sonic versatility. "It has a deep, powerful sound and you can use it to imitate just about anything – violin, sax, cello, even a sitar," says Jeff Beck.
All these reasons and more made the 1959 Les Paul Standard the most coveted and legendary guitar on the planet. Gibson Custom Shop's 60th Anniversary 1959 Les Paul Standard is not just a tribute to the priceless original models -- it's a clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of yearly advancements to accuracy and authenticity since Gibson Custom Shop began examining vintage Les Pauls over twenty years ago.
