60 Years of the 'Burst. We celebrate six decades of the most revered electric guitar in history: the legendary Les Paul Standard 'Burst. Made by Gibson between 1959 and 1960, the 'Burst has inspired legions of imitators but has never been equalled. To explore its elusive magic in detail, Guitarist puts five original 'Bursts on the test bench - including Bernie Marsden's 'Beast', the 1959 Standard he used on classic Whitesnake recordings. We examine and compare this quintet of classics and also look back at how this revered instrument went from commercial failure to collector's Holy Grail. Elsewhere in the issue we visit Steve Howe of Yes to examine the treasures of his extensive guitar collection and soak up a masterclass in blues-rock soloing with South African sensation Dan Patlansky.
