GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom Shop 1957 Darkback VOS Reissue "Gold Top + Rosewood"

£3,099.99Price

The best you can get! An incredibly accurate recreation of a 1957 Lester! Custom shop built with top of the line workmanship and materials. The non weight relieved body is mahogany with a carved maple top. The mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with accurate pearloid trapezoid inlays. Dual Burstbucker humbuckers dish out killer tone. Kluson style tuners, Stopbar tailpiece and ABR Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. Cool Goldtop lacquer finish with a dark mahogany back. Bumble Bee caps, long neck tenon, etc. This is an incredible Les Paul!

Many players love the 57 style necks. Nice and chunky but still comfortable. The action is low and the frets are great. The factory now PLEK's these guitars for killer playability out of the box. The Burstbuckers sound great with nice tone and good articulation. This is a great looking guitar too. It has the VOS finish which means it already has an aged look. It has the vibe of a lightly used guitar thanks to a factory dulled finish, aged hardware and light scratches. A cool look! One impression to the lower bout otherwise she would be pristine. Comes in original hardshell case with certificate and all the other paperwork.

Gibson’s Les Paul reissues are incredible guitars. Awesome tones, looks and quality.
