Gibson Catalog 1959

The 1959 Gibson Catalog included the Les Paul Standard ‘Burst’ – the 1959 edition is now one of the most sought-after and valuable guitars among collectors and players due to its unique sound, playability, and rarity.

This was also the year that marked the introduction of the ES-335TD, Gibson’s first semi-hollow electric guitar, which offered players a versatile instrument with reduced feedback at high volumes, bridging the gap between hollow bodies and solid electric guitars.

Acoustic models like the J-200, with its lush, full-bodied sound and striking aesthetic, and the small-bodied but sonorous LG-2, featured prominently in the catalog.
