The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.

Gibson Custom Shop's 1959 Les Paul Reissue is not just a tribute to the priceless original models, it's an exact clone of them. From laser-scanned dimensions to chemically-recreated plastics to color-matched shades of sunburst, every element has been rendered in unbelievable detail. It represents the culmination of decades of work by the Gibson Custom Shop's expert team, whom collectively forged a tireless quest to bring accuracy and authenticity to the hands of fans. It’s the definition of cool, and it's the best representation of the 1959 Les Paul Standard since the Gibson Custom Shop began making Historic Reissues over twenty-five years ago.
Featuring the classic set Mahogany neck configuration with a Mahogany body, a gorgeous Flame Maple top and then decked out in the highest quality and period correct hardware.
The ABR-1 Tune-o-Matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain.
This amazing guitar also features a dual set of Custombucker Alnico III unpotted humbucker pickups, guaranteeing that the recreation of that 59' sound is spot on and coupled with an array of tones and sounds that are unmatched by imitators.
The gorgeous figured Flame Maple top dawns a stunning Washed Cherry Sunburst finish that'll pop on any stage. And when you're done with rocking the stage, this guitar nestles in nicely to its period correct Gibson hardshell case.
This guitar does have some wear marks on it and a headstock crack repair, both of which have been accurately highlighted and portrayed in our photographs. Please take a moment and thoroughly review our photographs before purchasing.
