Gibson has teamed up with the legendary motorcycle brand Triumph to create a new 1959 Legends collection, featuring a one-of-a-kind custom electric guitar and accompanying motorcycle.

Based on coveted 1959 offerings from each company – the Les Paul Standard in Gibson's case, the Bonneville T120 bike in Triumph's – the pairing was created as an initiative to raise funds for The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, a worldwide vintage motorcycle ride held annually to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.
