ICONIC brands Triumph and Gibson have united to produce one off special editions of historic models for their respective brands, to raise funds for this year’s Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride.
Building on a shared passion for precision and performance, and inspired by the historical significance of the iconic 1959 Les Paul Standard and equally iconic 1959 Bonneville T120, the outcome is a stunning one-of-a-kind custom edition of each legendary model.
The 1959 Legends custom edition Les Paul Standard Reissue and Bonneville T120 feature a host of beautiful hand-detailed custom touches, designed and applied in Triumph’s factory workshop.
A genuine guitar icon, the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue is the ultimate Gibson classic, and 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, a 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 Edition Bonneville T120 features unique Gibson design detailing on the motorcycle, including a beautifully unique hand-painted sunburst paint scheme, featuring a Jet Black painted guitar neck and headstock shape.
Edged with hand-painted coach lining, plus a host of branded touches, both the bike and the guitar 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 years of support, with more than 100,000 riders in some 900 cities across the world.
To date, the charity has raised more than $31 million US dollars for men’s mental health and prostate cancer awareness.
