Gibson has announced a limited release of their new 1959 Patent Applied For (PAF) humbucker pickups, promising the most authentic recreation of their legendary 1950s tone. These pickups are a nod to Gibson’s golden era, particularly the 1959 Les Paul ‘Bursts – highly sought-after guitars that command exorbitant prices today.

  1. Another money making scam by Gibson LOL $999.00? If people fall for this they deserve to loose a grand..Good night LOL

    1. This is absolutely ridiculous!!! Gibson is price gouging their customers that they “say” they love? If that’s love, I’d hate to see the “hate” price!! Even the Studio les paul has had a hefty price increase. Gibson is really taking advantage of their customers on these 2 products. I own a Gibson les paul standard and I have always loved Gibson and I longed for the day I would own one. It plays good BUT like all Gibson’s it won’t stay in tune,and I’ve tried everything. I purchased a “Dimebag” guitar in December for a grand and I have to be honest, right outta the box the Dean plays BETTER and more importantly, it stays in tune. But here’s the sad thing:as long as the yuppies keep paying these ridiculous prices, the prices are gonna continue to rise!! And now you have a Epiphone that’s $1200 bucks? I’m sorry but if I’m dropping 1200,it’s gonna be for a Wylde Audio or something that I don’t have to work on just to get to play good. Sure the new Epiphone has some nice upgrades, but at tge end of the day it still plays like an Epiphone, and I have 2 les Paul’s. Thanks for letting me vent, but I couldn’t go any longer without speaking on this matter, and because I own a Gibson and Epiphones I feel that I have credentials to speak on this. So,let’s all make a stand about these ridiculous prices!!

  2. Another money making scam by Gibson, Playing on customer loyalty. If somebody pays that much for these they deserve to lose a G. There’s many many winders out there doing it for much less just don’t have the Gibson name on it. OMW Good night….$999??? wow
