Gibson Announces the Tribute to Southern Rock 1959 Les Paul
The guitar features a "Reverseburst" finish that is slightly reminiscent of a heart centered on the guitar’s top.
Nashville, TN (June 3, 2014) -- Gibson Custom’s Tribute to Southern Rock 1959 Les Paul is a special guitar that pays homage to a genre of Rock Music that originated in the Southern United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s. With a goal of preserving the Les Paul’s place as a significant part of Southern Rock’s lineage, as well as to reflect the spirit of positive revolution that fueled it, the guitar’s finish was enhanced to create something new, yet familiar. The result is a “Reverseburst” sunburst that is slightly reminiscent of a heart centered on the guitar’s top, a nod to the tremendous spirit that pushed Southern Rock from fringe to mainstream consciousness. Guitar aficionados can purchase one of the fifty exclusive signed guitars by rock legends Gary Rossington, Jimmy Hall and Charlie Daniels for $18,824.
