Gibson / Les Paul Standard 1958 VOS R8 Reissue / 2017 / Dirty Lemon / Guitar
For more photos see my website
This absolutely stunning dirty lemon Gibson 58 Les Paul historic reissue was bought new from Peach guitars in 2018. It’s a 2017 model and looks like it’s a ‘made to measure’ spec especially for Peach. It has a chunkier neck profile than the other 2017 R8s on the wall here and slightly more ageing to the hardware than usual for a VOS. The guitar is a ‘one owner’ example and hasn’t seen much action or wear. Frets are in amazing condition with tons of life left. There are a few small very tiny marks here and there, but barely anything the camera can notice. A superb top on this one, a really lovely guitar. It has everything you’d want from a Les Paul, a classic look, feel and a sound you simply can’t get any other way. The guitar is unmodified and all original and comes in the original case with all the candy and the Peach Guitars check sheet. Today these amazing instruments typically cost around £3800 at the guitar shops in the UK who are competing heavily with each other on price.
