The Gibson Custom Historic '60 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar adheres closely to the model that was released in the last year of the original Les Paul Standard line, before it was to be succeeded by the radical SG. Borrowing heavily from the legendary '59 model, the 1960 release featured some alterations that include a slim neck profile that was favoured by guitarists including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh and Paul McCartney, and gold reflector control knobs. The Gibson Custom Shop team have gone to exceptional lengths to capture the characteristics of the original model faithfully, using advanced methods of analysis and construction to produce an enchanting model.

Classic '60 Les Paul

The Gibson Custom Historic '60 Les Paul Standard bears all the hallmarks of the legendary single-cutaway. The body is crafted using lightweight solid mahogany to establish a rich midrange tonal foundation infused with warmth. Paired with the mahogany is a sublime two-piece figured maple top, which is slightly arched to establish a comfortable resting position for the picking hand whilst rounding out the upper mids and high frequencies for improved clarity. The tonewoods are reinforced using hide glue to uphold resilience throughout the model's life, and a protective layer of nitrocellulose allows the finish to age as gracefully as you wish. As with the original models, the more that you place this beauty, the more that it will develop its own unique aesthetic.

Historically accurate neck

Connected to the body via a long tenon joint is a solid mahogany neck, which is also reinforced using hot hide glue. As noted above, the neck adopts an authentic '60 slim C-shape profile, which makes it less cumbersome than the '59 profile and easier for some guitarists to get to grips with. 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 rosewood fingerboard, which is secured using hot hide glue to maximise stability. The fingerboard is home to 22 historic medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with cellulose trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style.

Custombucker pickups

The recreate the lush tonal palette of the original, a pair of Custombuckers are fitted between the neck and bridge positions. 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. Whether you're looking to recreate your favourite rock classics or lay down some new ones, these beauties ensure that your tone is as smooth as you can get.

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 '60 Les Paul Standard VOS Electric Guitar in pristine condition, wherever your music takes you.
