GIBSON CUSTOM SHOP 1958 LES PAUL STANDARD REISSUE VOS IN LEMON BURST INC HARDCASE (LPR58VOLBNH1)

Gibson / Custom Shop / R8 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue

1958 R8 Les Paul Standard Reissue, Lemon Burst

The Beginning of the Burst
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence.

Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.

The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking 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 which 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.
