The Aged & Signed Les Pauls are some of the best and most sought after to come out of the Gibson Custom Shop and the Rick Nielsen with the super low serial number 3 of only 50 pieces is no exception.

Sonically an all-rounder Les Paul that impresses with fat, sustain-rich rock sounds as well as with pearly clean tones, plays like a dream with the perfectly shaped medium 59 neck and the perfect weight of 3.7Kg, visually a highlight with the clear, tightly flamed grain and the detailed ageing.

The Rick Nielsen 1959 Les Paul Standard is a precise replica of the ‘Burst that has been Rick’s favourite stage and studio guitar since he acquired it over 30 years ago.

From the start, the foundation of one of rock and roll’s most lasting legacies has been Rick Nielsen. The guitarist, writer and seemingly endless source of energy is known to the masses for his songsmith’s prowess and guitar skills on stage and in the studio with Cheap Trick, but to guitarists, there’s a whole other level of Rick’s expertise.

To those who love guitars and love to collect them, Rick is an authority on the instrument itself, known the world over as one of the most ambitious and knowledgeable guitar collectors. For the last 30 years, an original 1959 Les Paul has been along for the ride, flying precariously through the air in the hands of Rick Nielsen, who hasn’t spent much time without it since the two found each other about 30 years ago. He’s become so attached to the original that he insists on bringing it on the road, a demand that his road crew isn’t too thrilled about. “It’s a valuable guitar, so it takes up most of our insurance rider coverage,” Rick observes with a laugh.

So that Rick can travel with the authentic look, tone, and feel of his original, and so that a few players and collectors can enjoy an ownership experience to rival Rick’s own, Gibson Custom has worked directly with Rick and his original 1959 Les Paul to replicate his original at a level of detail so fine that Rick himself put the prototype and the original side by side and declared the results “remarkable.”

Crafted to True Historic Specifications and only 50 hand-signed by the artist himself, this one being number 3 of only 50 made! This guitar is near mint condition for a factory aged guitar, easy 10/10!


Includes the COA certificate, case candy, pics, hangtags and AGED Hard-Shell Case as pictured.
