Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Holy Grail!
Hearing is Believing: This Guitar is equipped with a pair of Gibson U.S.A. BurstBucker (TM) pickups. BurstBucker pickups replicate the sound of Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups - the pickups that gave the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound. Like the originals, with unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, variations in pickup output and tone also came from inconsistencies in winding the bobbins, a result of the lack of automatic shutoffs on Gibson's winding machines in the late 1950s. Seth Lover, who invented the humbucker, always said they wound the bobbins "until they were full." When two coils in a pickup have a different number of turns, that variation puts a little "edge" or "bite" on the classic humbucker sound. That's the sound BurstBuckers replicate. The neck pickup is a Burstbucker-3 and is wound in the range of Gibson's '57 Classic. The bridge pickup is a Burstbucker-3 and is slightly over-wound with a hotter output that works well in combination with the BB-2 in the neck. One listen and you'll think you have a 1959 in your hands!
Other unique features of the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul include a Switchcraft brand toggle switch, Mallory-150 tone capacitors, amber “top hat” knobs with metal pointers, nickel hardware, and a “stamped” serial number on the back of the headstock. The guitar includes a replica Lifton-style case with brown exterior and pink interior.
