A 1959 Les Paul that’s still in active use on tour and in the studio is a rare gem in its own right. One with a provenance that stretches from Seattle to Belfast and back, in the hands and woven into the tapestry of genre-defining music, is a bona fide once-in-a-lifetime guitar. The Mike McCready 1959 Les Paul is a hands-on replica of one of the most interesting original Les Pauls we’ve ever had the pleasure to collaborate on, produced with exacting analysis of the original to re-create its look, sound and feel to the Nth degree. Add to its unique backstory, a cutting, crisp and aggressive tone with a lifetime of battle on display in its well-worn finish, and a neck feel that simply says “let’s play,” and you have a guitar that’s irresistible.
