Overview

There is a lot to be said for any guitar with the VOS stamp from Gibson's master Custom Shop luthiers. Vintage Original Spec represents the faithful reproduction of classic Gibson models from the late 50s and 60s, available in a range of different 'burst finishes. The CS8 is a '50s Style Les Paul Standard in Faded Tobacco Burst!

Delivering the full vibe and feel of the first Sunburst Les Paul, with '50s spec neck, Historic truss rod and Alnico III Custom Buckers

The historic specifications that Gibson's iconic Les Paul was founded upon starts with a one-piece, hand selected solid mahogany body, finished with a hand-applied lacquer for incredible sustain and aesthetic appeal. As a result, this guitar lives and breathes over time with it's owner, and just sounds fantastic.

When you drill down into the details, this Les Paul utilises vintage components synonymous with the guitars of that era, including Bumble capacitors with historic spec wiring. The Custombucker Alnico III pickups are custom wound to capture the exact same chime, pluck and growl of an original 50's Les Paul. Rest assured that this faithful re-issue sounds exactly like an original PAF bucker.

Additional appointments include a lightweight aluminium tailpiece, solid Indian Rosewood fretboard and a bound mahogany neck. The long neck tenon really adds to the tonal clarity and sustain of the CS8 Les Paul, while the original chunky '50s rounded neck profile is historically accurate to the era.
