Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue Electric Guitar (with Case)

This Gibson Custom 58 Les Paul VOS recreates the first year of the famed burst finish. This model's nitro lacquer cherry sunburst finish is a true beauty.
What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Custom Bucker pickups Closest PAF reproductions Gibson has created
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish Ultra-thin, strong gloss; preserves natural tone
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Solid mahogany body Clear, present midrange; long-lasting sustain
In 1958, Gibson parted ways with the gold finish on the Les Paul Model and introduced the Les Paul Standard, a refresh that featured a center-seam maple top, red aniline dye back and sides, and a beautiful transparent Cherry Sunburst finish. While only that one color was available originally, exposure to sunlight and subtle variations have made each original example unique in color. Gibson Custom picked four beautiful sunburst variations for the new 2018 Historic Collection, each bringing out all the character of the unique maple tops.

And just like the 1958 originals, the neck profiles on these Historic models are just a bit beefier on average when compared to a 1959 -- a comfortable chunky C-shape. Two new updates for 2018 include the inclusion of all True Historic-spec parts and, for the first time, narrow/tall frets which bring the tone and playability closer to the character of the originals.
