The Les Paul Bursts from 1958 to 1960 guitar specs:

  • Model name changed from "Les Paul Model" to "Les Paul Standard".

  • Sunburst finish replaces Goldtop finish in the fall of 1958, around serial numbers in the "8 5300" range (though the first known Sunburst Les Paul has serial number "83322").

  • The maple top on a 1958 to 1960 Sunburst Les Paul is always two pieces and "center seamed" (there is NO exception to this rule, except for one of the first 1958 sunburst Les Pauls with serial number "83322"; if a Sunburst Les Paul does not have a two piece center seamed maple top, it is a refinished Goldtop!)
