    They’ve finally done it! Gibson Custom Shop has taken the hugely popular, painstakingly-vintage accurate ’59 Les Paul and morphed it into one of the coolest Explorers we’ve seen! As a Benchmark release, only a few authorized dealers get the honor of carrying these limited models. The neck has a custom profile that is extremely comfortable, yet substantial. The appointments follow in the footsteps of this year’s historic re-issues, with nickel Kluson tuners, period-correct cream binding, and gold top hat control knobs. For pickups, two Custombuckers are slightly underwound, delivering the closest PAF recreations to date. Add in period correct construction, and you’ve got an Explorer like no other, that absolutely sings!
