The Beginning of the Burst! An incredible reissue of the '58 Les Paul from the Gibson Custom Shop. With Its eye-grabbing VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish in Bourbon Burst and Gibson's painstaking attention to detail, this one's packed with classic tone and vintage-original-spec authenticity.
The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets that help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally, it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character. Available in a variety of classic sunburst shades.
To capture the essence of the original 1958 Les Paul Standard, Gibson painstakingly re-created each part piece by piece. The mahogany body, 2-piece maple top, nitro finish, and Indian rosewood fingerboard are only the beginning. Not only do you get a very comfortable Chunky C profile neck, but the accuracy of the details go all the way down to the positioning of the instrument's vintage-style Kluson Waffleback tuners and the size and shape of its cellulose Trapezoid inlays.
