Gibson Custom Shop 2019 Historic 1960 Les Paul • SN: 09101

Wildwoodians, is there anything cooler than a Burst-era Les Paul? Maybe if a polar bear could hit a jump on a snowmobile and do a backflip, it would approach Burst-esque levels of coolness. But, until we humans make tremendous advancements in the field of polar bear training, the Bursts shall reign supreme. Though the original Bursts only lasted from 1958 to 1960, they enjoyed an oversized impact in popular music. Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh, Paul McCartney, and countless other iconic players have all featured the sweet sound of their Les Pauls on dozens of classic recordings. Without a doubt, the Les Pauls produced from '58 to '60 are some of the greatest examples of craftsmanship in the history of musical instruments. Their sound is as American as beer and monster trucks, and they are part of rock and roll's DNA. Since we have the Burst bug bad here at Wildwood, we were overjoyed when we received the 2019 Historic reissue models from Gibson Custom. Once again, the wizard-like luthiers at the Custom shop have outdone themselves. With a combination of premium tonewoods, obsessive attention to detail, old-world manufacturing techniques, and a healthy dose of love and care, they have crafted some of the mightiest Les Pauls ever to grace the mortal realm. Let's take a closer look and examine some of the splendid ingredients that form their sonic cocktail.
