Gibson / Custom Shop Historic 1958 Les Paul Standard R8 VOS / 2013 / Sunburst / Guitar
This guitar is stunning. Very well cared for, the top, though initially quite plain, reveals some subtle quilting at certain angles and married to an impressive single piece mahogany body it makes quite the package.
As with the body, the single piece neck shows very little signs of use. The grain is wonderfully showcased here. The Indian rosewood fretboard is in great shape as are the frets.
The plastics are in good condition as is the hardware. Both show very little signs of use. The hardware has been subtly aged.
Electrically everything is correct and untouched, as you would expect of course with a pair of Custom bucker humbucking pickups along with the obligatory reproduction bumblebee caps.
The guitar comes with its Gibson Custom Shop hard-shell case and all the extensive documentation you see in the pics.
It's a joy to play with a sublime ‘58 profile neck and the Custombucker pickups delivering those wonderful PAF-like tones.
Looks and tone to die for, what more could you want...?
