60th Anniversary Les Paul (2021)

60th Anniversary Les Paul

The 60th Anniversary Les Paul celebrates the last great year of the Les Paul. In 1961 the Les Paul was fully replaced by the SG until 1968. This may seem like madness to us today but it just wasn’t selling back then.

Les Paul

Designed and refined by Les Paul himself, the Les Paul is undoubtedly a masterpiece. With PAF humbucking pickups, it worked great for Jazz as intended. When the rockers used the high output to push their amps hard then legends were born.

Anniversery Set Up

The 1960 Les Paul was very similar to the Iconic 59 set-up but with a slimmer, faster neck. Also, the tuners were wider for better leverage and accuracy. This has all been recreated on the anniversary edition.


The attention to detail matched with the records and tools of the original factories means something. Although most guitars from Gibson are now CnC’d, the machines are programmed with the relevant information. The woods in this 2021 model were all correctly matched to the originals. Since many wood species are now protected, many materials are now substituted in the guitar world. This is about as close as you can get without selling an organ!
