If you want the ultimate, original 1959 Les Paul Tone (only better), + beautiful, meticulous aging than look no further. We have had 2 of these Doyle Time Machine Les Paul Standards and they were both, frankly almost unbelievable in playability, tone, looks, & resonance. We have kept an original, one owner 1959 Les Paul Standard here for many years as a tone benchmark. And we all agree, this one sounds better, plays better, and is as vintage feeling as the original Les Paul. As you can tell from the photos, this one has a fantastic flamed Maple top that is beautifully aged. And these Doyle PAF pickups are just fantastic sounding. This one was a 2014 Gibson Historic R9 that was given the Tom Doyle treatment in 2017. The weight is 8 lbs 8 oz. The guitar has only been played for a few hours in the original owner's smoke-free home. All the paperwork & case candy shown in the photos are included.
