Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard VOS, Tobacco Burst, Left Handed, Second-Hand
Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard VOS, Tobacco Burst, Left Handed, Second-Hand Overview by GAK.
The Gibson Custom Standard Historic 1958 Les Paul was designed to be a recreation of the first incarnation of the desirable "Burst" guitars that are hugely rare and sought after today, with a price tag that put them way beyond the means of most. In 1958 Gibson brought together all the features that make a Les Paul the classic that it is today with Humbucker pickups, Tune-o-matic bridge, Lightly Figured Maple top and the Cherry sunburst finish that faded differently on each guitar creating a whole host of new colours over time.
Thankfully, Gibson Custom Shop have managed to bring together all the features of this historic guitar into a more affordable package in the Standard Historic 1958 Les Paul Standard. Sporting a solid one-piece Mahogany body, a lightly figured Maple top, quarter-sawn mahogany neck with a one-piece Rosewood fretboard, rounded C shape 50's profile, long neck tenon and Custom Buckers which accurately recreate the PAF's of the late 50's, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, Hot Hide-glue neck join, Historic truss rod assembly with no-tubing and accurate body and fingerboard binding with period-correct Aniline dye. If you are looking for a close representation of the original legendary 1958 Les Paul Standard but don't quite have the six-figure asking price then this is a fantastic opportunity to buy the next best thing.
Excellent condition and incredible playing R8 Les Paul with hard case and certificate.
This guitar currently has Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups fitted but has the Original Custom Buckers as well which can be fitted upon request.
