For a number of years the Gibson Custom Shop has produced some of the finest vintage reissue guitars on the market, meticulously detailing the look, feel and sound of some of the companies most sought after Golden Era instruments. The 1959 VOS Les Paul Reissue is arguably the pick of the bunch, putting the most revered guitar ever made in to the hands of new players.
Hand built in Gibson’s Custom Shop, the ’59 features a stunning recreation of the ’59 sunburst maple top, with a gorgeous Faded Ice Tea Sunburst finish Custom Shop VOS treated for a glossy, lightly aged look, with a rich dark cherry edge and tight nit flame that looks particularly stunning on this guitar. The solid mahogany body with carved maple top is paired with the very desirable, slightly thinner and comfortably early 50's rounded neck profile with smaller neck heel true to the original ’59 spec. The handmade Gibson Custom Buckers are produced using Alnico III magnets with period-correct wiring these Custom Buckers accurately recreate the seminal PAF humbucker of the 50’s.
The '59 VOS Les Paul also features period correct parts and components including Bumble Bee tone caps, a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, a traditional hot-hide glue neck-fit, Kluson Deluxe tuners and period-accurate colour binding.
