As the tonal sweetness of late ’50s
Les Pauls began to be discovered by the
burgeoning rock class of the ’60s and ’70s,
some began to convert older, single-coil-equipped
Les Pauls to humbucker models. Some went even
further, refinishing their guitars in an attempt to
replicate the sought-after ’ 59 ’Bursts. These guitars are
also referred to as “Refins.” The ’ 55 Hot-Mods give you
the desired look and sound of these modified Les Pauls.
‘ 55 Hot-Mods feature the ultracomfortable
”Soft Shoulder ’ 55” neck profile,
painstakingly copied from an extra-special
original ’ 55 neck. Following the original spirit
of innovation, these Hot-Mod ’ 55 Series
guitars are the first reissues to feature TonePros
long steel Locking Studs set into Long Steel
Anchors, both maximizing tonal transfer and sustain.
Available in both Wraptail and Tune-O-Matic varieties,
these beauties give you the full range of Gibson Humbucker
sounds from warm and clear cleans to full-on rich and juicy
power. Vintage classics done the way YOU want! Call or

Hot-Mod ’ 55 instruments.
