Gibson Les Paul Standard Amber Burst, 2005

Originally produced for only the years 1958 to 1960, the Gibson Les Paul Standard overcame its lack of commercial success and became one of the influential guitars ever. The Les Paul Standard appeared in 1958 as a ‘new’ version of the Les Paul model and carried Gibson’s new hum-bucking pickups designed by Seth Lover, and was adorned with a sunburst finish showing off what was normally a nicely figured Maple cap.

Built from 1989 to about 2017 at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo Michigan, the Heritage H555 evokes the higher end, groundbreaking thinline archtop electrics of the late 1950s. The Heritage Guitar Company was founded in 1985 by a number of former Gibson employees who chose not to relocate when Norlin, then Gibson’s parent company, moved operations to Nashville in 1984. They stayed behind, purchased the plant and began producing professional and higher grade instruments clearly influenced by their experiences.
