As with many other Gibson Custom Shop instruments, the R8 VOS '58 Les Paul is one of the most faithful and highest quality reissues of a golden era Gibson 'Burst'. Meticulously selected tonewoods, period correct hardware, and construction techniques make these Custom Shop Gibsons the creme of the crop, with an attention to detail that is unparalleled.
This particular guitar from 2013 features a beautifully figured Sunburst top with a subtle but detailed amount of flame visible, and has been kept in excellent condition by its original owner. It has a 1958 spec neck shape with a typically chunky feel that is still remains effortlessly playable with plenty of wood to wrap your hands around. The body is fitted with a set of Custombucker pickups that offer all the clarity, definition and unmistakable tone of a set of original PAF pickups. All electronics are meticulously assembled in the same way they would have been in the late 50's, and the guitar also features a VOS aged nitrocellulose finish, aniline dyes and a traditional long tenon neck join.
