"This is where the proper, modern Re-Issue starts"
A very unusual example with a natural maple top and all gold hardware…
1991 Gibson Les Paul Standard (1960 re-issue).
This very beautiful and unusual early 1960 Les Paul Standard re-issue weighs just 9.00 lbs. Solid mahogany body with a 'natural' book-matched carved maple top. One-piece mahogany neck, with a perfect nut width of just over 1 11/16 inches and a really comfortable thin-to-medium 1960 neck profile which measures just 0.80 inches at the first fret and rises gently to 0.88 inches at the 12th fret. Rosewood fretboard with 22 original medium jumbo frets and inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers. Headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and "Les Paul Model" silkscreened in gold. Two layer black on white, bell-shaped plastic truss rod cover engraved in white "Standard" and secured by two screws. The back of the headstock with the serial number and "Made in USA" stamped in blind. Individual Gibson (Kluson) Deluxe double-line tuners with single-ring tulip-shaped Keystone plastic buttons. One Gibson Burstbucker Type 2 pickup in the neck position with an output of 8.11k, and one Gibson Burstbucker Type 3 pickup in the bridge position with a really hot output of 12.66k. Both pickups are engraved on the underside "PAT. NO. 2,737,842". Four controls (two volume, two tone) on lower treble bout plus a three-way selector switch on upper bass bout. The potentiometers are stamped "137 91 43" (CTS October 1991). Gold "Speed" knobs with white numbers. Gibson [ABR-1] Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with metal saddles and separate stud tailpiece. All hardware gold-plated. Inside the neck pickup cavity is written "Nat" and inside the bridge pickup cavity is written "G G". This extremely rare example, with a figured natural maple top, is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition with just a few small surface marks/indentations and two small scratches on the back of the neck, one on the treble-side behind the third fret and the other on the bass side behind the sixth fret. Housed in its original Gibson brown hardshell case with purple plush lining and silk cover (9.25). (#1805)
