"“There are ’59s that sound better and play better than others. I’m not a scientist but I have been told that it has a lot to do with wood grain. If you look at the back of a Les Paul and see that the grain is very swirled, you know the mahogany grain is not as straight, I think that affects the sustain of the body. The notes just don’t travel as far. “I’ve also been told that not all PAFs were created the same. Not every Gibson PAF is a great pickup.”
Many things also the fact the wood was top notch, well not all in fact QA who knows, and now they are aged. Although many sounded different and like mentioned the PAF tended to be different from guitar to guitar. Well in fact many attributes of each guitar where different at times. I have played one 59 and it was magical.
