1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard Sunburst Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 9 1966. An original 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst. The top on this guitar is amazing and really pops in the sunlight. This guitar had Grover tuners; holes filled and re-drilled.
- Dec 10, 2014 · Duane Allman had three primary Les Pauls during his time with the Allman Brothers Band. The 1957 goldtop that he played on the band’s first two albums as well as most of the Derek and the Dominos Layla sessions has been on display at the Big House Museum in Macon, Georgia.
We showcase brilliant hi-resolution photos of each model with a serial number! Gibson was founded in 1902 by Orville Gibson, and the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd.

Note there were a handful of 1954 Goldtops made with the serial number starting with "7". This is confusing as the "7" would otherwise mean 1957 (and a 1957 Goldtop would have a Tunematic bridge). This was no doubt a mistake by Gibson, and the pot source/code can be checked to verify the correct year.

- In 1994, Gibson’s Centennial year, many instruments have a serial number that begins with “94” for the year, with the remaining 6 digits indicating the ranking number. Gibson Custom 1952-1960 Les Paul, Explorer, Flying V, and Futura reissues (since late 1992):
