Gibson Custom analyzed the sound of the original PAF humbucking pickups and re-created that vibe with a pair of CustomBucker humbuckers. These pickups use period-correct wire and a precise number of turns to create the tone we all know and love. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of the CustomBucker pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul!


Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the Collector's Choice #13 Gordon Kennedy 1959 Les Paul. Every Gibson Custom guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup for optimized playability. The fretboard and nut have an incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches, like the plain maple top and the accurately-aged hardware remain true to the original 1959 Les Paul Standard that Collector's Choice #13 pays homage to.
