The 1959 VOS Les Paul Reissue is a remarkable evocation of Gibson’s golden era Les Paul. Hand built in Gibson’s Custom Shop, the ’59 features a stunning recreation of the ’59 burst and Custom Shop VOS treated finish for an exquisite aged patina. The solid mahogany body with carved maple top is paired with the very desirable, slightly thinner and comfortably rounded neck profile with smaller neck heel true to the original ’59 spec, using Alnico III magnets with period-correct wiring these Custom Buckers accurately recreate the seminal PAF humbucker of the 50’s. Other premium features include Bumble Bee tone caps, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, hot-hide glue neck-fit, Kluson Deluxe tuners and period-accurate colour binding.
