Sold! Gibson Les Paul Classic 60’s Reissue Honey Burst, 2005

Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Gibson Les Paul Classic appeared during 1990 as a reissue of the 1960 Les Paul model, with its key feature being a slim neck profile. This model has been produced in three stretches – from 1990 to 1998, from 2000 to 2008, and since 2014. The headstock decal originally read ‘Les Paul Model’ as the originals did, and this was changed to ‘Les Paul Classic’ in 1993. The pickguard is also engraved with ‘1960’.

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Classic 1960’s Reissue built during 2005, and dressed in a Honey Burst finish, with a nice satin gloss that really sits well with the nickel plated hardware. The original 490 R and T pickups were replaced with DiMarzio 36th Anniversary models, and the original tuners were replaced with recent Kluson Deluxe models.

The finish is in overall good shape, and visually works very well – the satin effect contributes to a ‘vintage’ vibe without the damage of a ‘relic’ treatment. The Maple top is lightly figured, which was not uncommon for guitars from the 1960 period. This guitar does not have weight relief chambering.

Fret wear is light, and the relatively narrow and slim 60’s neck profile is very comfortable.

The original Gibson branded hard shell case is included.
