The research and quest for various “Pre-Reissue” and “Reissue” Les Pauls of the 80’s and early 90’s, especially during the experimental period of 1980-83, has been a fascinating journey, still leaving many unanswered questions about the thought process behind the evolving features of these guitars over time. During a period of changes in market demand, economic conditions, a plant closing, layoffs, new ownership, and market repositioning, Gibson was doing its best to recreate the magic of vintage 50’s Les Pauls in response to the never-ending requests of collectors and players who wanted to recapture the magic of one of the most important instruments in rock and roll. And the Historic Reissue has continued to evolve in the decade of the 90’s and the new millennium with features that more closely emulate their 1959 predecessors.
