The Gibson Les Paul Heritage 80 Series (introduced in 1980) was the very first of Gibson's many reissues of their classic 1959 sunburst Les Paul. These Heritage 80 Les Pauls were made in the Nashville plant from 1980 to 1982. They had the closest to real '59 vintage specifications than any other Gibson Les Paul of the period.
On top of that for this model Gibson engineer Tim Shaw recreated the legendary 1950's PAF humbucker, by carefully investigating the winding and magnets of the original late 50's pickups. These PAF recreations became known as ‘Shawbuckers’ or ‘TimBuckers’ and are very well regarded by Les Paul collectors.
