Inspired by the shared historic significance of the year 1959, with the legendary 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, the ‘holy-grail’ of guitars, and the equally iconic original 1959 Triumph Bonneville T120, the original British superbike and arguably the most famous name in motorcycling.
A genuine guitar icon, the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is the ultimate Gibson classic, Triumph say it’s an accurate clone that’s authentic in every detail, from its iconic sunburst finish to the look and feel of each part and its incredible trademark tone.
The 1959 Legends Custom Edition features unique Triumph design detailing, including hand coach-lined pickguard, inspired by the Bonneville’s trademark engine fins, and etched pick-up covers, branded truss rod cover and reissue switch backplate.
Along with the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue certificate of authenticity, the Legends Edition also comes with its own one-of-a-kind certificate signed by Triumph CEO, Nick Bloor, and Cesar Gueikian, Brand President of Gibson Brands.
The 1959 Legends Custom Edition Bonneville T120 features unique Gibson design detailing, including beautifully unique hand-painted sunburst paint scheme, featuring Jet Black painted guitar neck and headstock shape, edged with hand-painted coach lining, plus a host of branded touches.
The 1959 Legends guitar and Bonneville T120 motorcycle will together be offered as the highest fundraiser reward for the 2022 ride. The 2022 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride represents a major milestone in Triumph’s sponsorship, marking nine incredible years of support, with over 100,000 riders in more than 900 cities across the world, raising more than $31million(USD) for men’s mental health and prostate cancer awareness.
