Up for grabs here at RGG, is this stunningly lovely 2017 Gibson Custom Shop 1958 (R8) Les Paul Standard VOS Dirty Lemon. This guitar is pretty much unplayed & shows no signs of wear. Although an R8, the neck, is a slightly slimmer feel than many other 58’s, it has more of an R9 feel & is ultra comfy. Basically, with this Gibson Custom Shop ’58 Les Paul Standard, you get a guitar with the feel of a modern Les Paul Standard but with a more traditional Custom Shop build quality. She sleeps in her Lifton style case & has all tags/candy included.

With the traditional Mahogany body, this Les Paul benefits from a crisp Plain Maple top for the ultimate tonewood partnership. Rich and super resonant it offers premium tone and timeless aesthetics. The VOS Dirty Lemon finish offers a real premium finish that allows the wood to breathe and the natural tone to sing through. The VOS finish gives the appearance of a well-cared for guitar, no ageing here just some mild patina and hardware fade. With the same hide glue process and plastics as a True Historic, this Les Paul is a real vintage tone machine.

The Mahogany neck is topped with a lush Rosewood fingerboard, with classic Gibson Cellulose Trapezoid inlays this guitar looks every bit the real deal. With a ’59 neck shape it’s comfortable and perfectly balanced, and is the first time Gibson have utilised the ’59 profile on a ’58.

The defining feature of the Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul is the custom wound Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are the most historically accurate PAF clone on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality, it’s as close as you can get to the classic Les Paul tone.

The Gibson Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitars ever put into production, with such a rich history and timeless appeal, the bar has been set pretty high. Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard VOS is a guitar that builds on over 60 years of innovation and development and pushes ever further forward.

In summary, she is one lovely & playable lemon topped lady, with her Lifton style case & COA, she’s perfect for collectors and player alike. This Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul is testament to the timeless design crafted by Les Paul all those years ago.
