Mick Ralphs' massive tones and searing leadwork are as indelible to rock 'n roll as the sunburst 1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard he is known for playing. Now, thanks to the painstaking efforts of the Gibson Custom Shop, that very guitar has been replicated in precise detail as part of this small limited release. The original (serial #8 7049) was studied in London, where its top carve profile, neck contours and pickup outputs were measured. It took months to craft the prototype which eventually earned the final approval of both its current owner and Mick Ralphs himself. This resulting run of guitars captures the one-of-a-kind tone, look and feel of the original through the use of hand-selected woods, digitally scanned contours, mapped wear and checking patterns, historic hide-glue construction and vintage-spec materials. The Mick Ralphs 1958 Les Paul Standard Replica is not only a playable tribute to a legendary guitarist but an instrument on par with the hallowed Les Pauls of the late 1950s in every way.
