Built to perform just like Joe's Les Paul
Many guitarists consider the vintage Les Paul electric guitar the ideal combination of tone and
playability. The Gibson Custom Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul is based on Joe's '60 Tangerine Burst LP to bring you the vibe of that classic model. The 1-piece mahogany neck provides the sustain that made the Les Paul a legend and features a custom Joe Walsh profile
for a period-correct feel. And with the time-proven combination of a mahogany body, maple top, and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, you know that the Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul is built to perform.
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than
Gibson's latest Custom Shop Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul includes new appointments to add even more authenticity and vintage vibe to this iconic re-issue guitar. The neck is attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue.
Gibson Custom Shop also re-engineered the truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor to their original form. They also eliminated the tubing that surrounded the truss rod. From the vintage-accurate Aniline dye finish on the mahogany back and sides to the spot-on
binding color makes the Gibson Custom Shop Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul is one of the most accurate artist reproductions ever.
Aged by Tom Murphy
The road-worn look of this Gibson Custom Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul was applied with love by Tom Murphy.
As a world-renowned leader in guitar aging, Tom Murphy perfected his aging process as a way to revive old instruments without making them look unnatural. Tom has created a spot-on re-creation of Joe's original Les Paul down to the dings, nicks, and worn-off
finish on the back.
CustomBucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble
bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on '60 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Custom Shop Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul sports a pair
of Gibson's CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a '60 Les Paul!
