Gibson ’58 Les Paul Standard VOS

kr. 33,500

In 1958, Gibson parted ways with the gold finish on the Les Paul Model and introduced the “Les Paul Standard,” a refresh that featured a center-seam maple top, red aniline dye back and sides, and a beautiful transparent Cherry Sunburst finish. While only that one color was available originally, exposure to sunlight and subtle variations have made each original example unique in color. Gibson Custom picked four beautiful sunburst variations for the new Historic Collection, each bringing out all the character of the unique maple tops.

And just like the 1958 originals, the neck profiles on these Historic models are just a bit beefier on average when compared to a 1959 – a comfortable chunky C-shape. Two new updates include the inclusion of all True Historic-spec parts and, for the first time, narrow/tall frets which bring the tone and playability closer to the character of the originals.
