There are plenty of really nice Les Paul Reissues around at any given time, but here at Capital Guitars we are extremely selective about which examples we invest in for our inventory. The guitar offered here is a particularly special example; a 2018 Limited Run '59 Les Paul Reissue with a Brazilian fretboard. This beauty is serial number 98176 of this very limited run of guitars.

​​Specifications for this very special guitar include a non-weight relieved mahogany body with spectacular Maple flame top with a Slow Ice Tea Fade finish, VOS light aging and a super light total weight of just 8 pounds, 2.5 ounces ( 8.156 pounds)! It has a '59 C-shaped neck with moderate shoulders and depth measurements of .870" at the first fret tapering up to 1.01" at the twelfth. The fretboard is a fabulous slab of almost black Brazilian Rosewood. It has Burstbucker 3 pickup in the neck, which is wired out of phase, and a E-Bucker in the bridge.  Other details include hide glue construction, long neck tenon, 12" fretboard radius, 1-11/16" nut width, 24.75" string scale and an ABR-1 bridge and tailpiece.

This guitar is simply amazing. The tone is that of a vintage LP on steroids. No pedals needed here, just add gain! It's voice is fat and woody even at low volumes, but add gain and it can become an unleashed tone monster. Please check out the included sound sample; even at the moderate volume at which this sample was recorded you can tell the potential this guitar has.  Just add a tube amp and gain and you are ready to rock. The setup is superb too; low and buzz free with a new set of Elixir Nano .10's installed.​ The guitar's very light weight and great balance make it a joy to play.

The condition of this guitar is as it came from the factory and it has seen only light test play since then.  Gibson has given it a light VOS patina on the hardware.  The frets are flawless. It comes in it's original Lifton-style reissue case with the certificate of authenticity and all of the original paperwork.​

Dealers originally asked $11.4K for these limited run guitars and there are still a few available for $9.4K, but none with the light weight and fabulous flame top of this guitar. These are sure to be highly desirable in the years to come.  Get this fabulous example for your arsenal at a great price while you can.  One marvelous and very special LP!


*Please note: As of this writing, I also have another guitar from this limited run with nearly identical specs, but with a "Vintage Lemon" finish.
