Description

Details

The Gibson Custom Historic '58 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar is a beautiful rendition of the Les Paul Standard that superseded the gold top in 1958. The Gibson Custom team have gone to extravagant lengths to recreate minute details such as neck profile depth and shape, as well as introducing True Historic-spec parts to produce as authentic a feel as possible. If you've craved the feel, look and sound of a '58 Les Paul, then this is as close as you're going to get without breaking the bank.

Classic '58 Les Paul

As one would expect, the Gibson Custom Historic '58 Les Paul Standard is shaped to the instantly recognisable profile that has influenced so many others for decades. The body is constructed using lightweight solid mahogany, which is paired with a two-piece plain maple top. Everything is secured and reinforced using hide glue for increased resilience. A coating of nitrocellulose lacquer preserves the finish to enable each model to age gracefully and develop its own unique character over time. Gibson have ensured that the Les Paul plays as beautifully as ever, whilst the tonewood partnership generates that classic beefy tone that sings sweetly.

Chunky neck design

Connected to the body via a long tenon joint is a solid mahogany neck, which is also secured using hide glue. The neck is meticulously carved to a medium-chunky C-shape profile, which tapers from a .9-inch depth at the nut to a 1-inch depth at the 12th fret. The result is a more substantial feel in the hand than the '59 Les Paul. The generous 24.75-inch scale length allows the strings to resonate freely whilst emphasising a heartier midrange response. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous ebony fingerboard, which is secured using hide glue to maximise stability. The fingerboard is home to 22 narrow tall frets that are adorned with cellulose trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style.

Custombucker pickups

Having the fit and feel would be nothing without the tone, which is why the Gibson Custom team designed the unique Custombuckers that slot into the neck and bridge positions perfectly to produce rapturous tones. You'll find 2500K CTS volume pots and tone pots for each pickup, with a hand-wire harness with Bumblebee capacitors to guarantee the smoothest attenuation, whilst a Switchcraft pickup selector toggle switch allows you to shift seamlessly between each pickup. From crisp and cutting to fat and funky, this Les Paul can do it all.

Immaculate hardware

From the headstock to the end pin, the Historic '58 Les Paul Standard boasts superb hardware across the board. The ABR-1 bridge and lightweight aluminium tailpiece partner up to anchor each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock bears single-band Kluson deluxe tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully. The pickguard, control knobs, switch tip, switch washer, and jack plate cover are all replica renditions of the original, which complement the body finish with a flourish.

Each model is supplied with a brown/pink lacquered '50s replica case to keep your Gibson Custom Historic '58 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar in pristine condition, wherever your music takes you.
