Here we have an absolutely gorgeous 2018 Les Paul Historic 58 Custom Shop R8 VOS. She plays and sounds totally excellent. This guitar is mint condition, it’s unplayed with original Lifton-style case, COA, paperwork etc. Just a dream machine and whoever brings this baby home is gonna be one happy camper.

The Gibson Custom Shop Historic Series has been getting better and better each year, getting so close to the great examples of the late 50’s and early 60’s.Hide-glue construction, premium tone woods, the all-new 2018 Historic Collection has added more great features. New neck profiles (including an all-new ’58 profile scanned from an original vintage ’58) hide glue neck construction and the renown sound transference that comes with its long neck tenon. The most important details that made the original a legend are artfully revived for a convincing vintage playing experience. to period correct smaller fretwire and all new “Fade” finishes. Aniline-dyed 1-piece mahogany backs, historically-accurate deluxe Kluson tuners, and incredible maple tops that make each one unique. The Custom Buckers sound great as usual! The case is the lacquered Lifton-style that is more accurate than years past. Incredible guitar!
