As close to an original '58 as you can get.
The 1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard Plain Top VOS guitar begins with a solid mahogany back and carved plain maple top. The one-piece mahogany neck is topped with a gorgeous rosewood fretboard that's adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays with shape and color true to the original. Early '50s rounded neck profile delivers the vintage feel players love. BurstBucker 1 and 2 pickups deliver famous vintage Les Paul tone.
In an effort to jump start the steadily declining sales of the Les Paul model, Gibson abandoned the familiar gold finish and used a translucent, cherry sunburst finish which showed off the figured maple tops that were often used on Les Pauls. The renamed Les Paul Standard made its debut in 1958.
Vintage Original Spec series instruments receive a special nitro-cellulose finish treatment yielding the patina of a gently-aged vintage guitar while handcrafting enhances comfort and playability. Each VOS model has a solid mahogany back; historically accurate long-neck tenon for strength and sustain; and period-correct neck profile, hardware, and electronics.

Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard Plain Top VOS Electric Guitar:
Where can one possibly begin? Gibson has produced another Reissue Winner. From the BurstBucker Pickups to the '50's neck profile what a pleasure of an instrument to play. The Historic Line is one of the best if not the best Gibsons to roll out of Nashville TN. Pick one up & play it through a tube amp & be prepared to be vaulted back to the early dawn of Rock 'N Roll. You surely will not be disappointed in the least
