GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom Shop Historic 1958 R8 VOS "Washed Cherry Burst 2007

£3,299.99Price

A really, really cool recreation of a 1958 Burst. Custom shop built with top of the line workmanship and materials. The non-weight relieved body is mahogany with a carved maple top. The one piece 58 shaped 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. This example is finished a gorgeous Washed Cherry sunburst lacquer. Really authentic with all the right details. Bumble Bee caps, long neck tenon, etc. This is an incredible Les Paul!


Many players love the big 58 style necks. Nice and chunky but still comfortable. The action is low and the frets are full. The pickups and electronics sound great with nice tone and good articulation. This one has quintessential Les Paul tone. This one was owned by a collector and traded into yours truly. As a result, it has seen very little play time. The frets show little sign of use and the guitar is as nice as many you would find new in stores. This is a solid guitar in excellent condition. no visible wear other then some faint polish swirling. Comes in original hardshell case with all the case candy.


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