The key to the timeless beauty of this guitar lies in the title - A 1958 Standard Historic Les Paul, paying homage to the LP models of the late 50s. Period-correct details, stunning attention-to-detail and trademark Custom Shop appointments make this a Les Paul to behold.
'THE' defining Gibson Les Paul, with a stunning Gloss finish
The Gibson Custom Shop uses a body of solid, non-weight relieved mahogany, which blends depth and richness with the snap and clarity of the maple top. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck still has a chunky, rounded ’50s profile, which, in combination with the traditional long-tenon neck joint, enhances sustain and resonance as well as feeling great in the hand. In addition to these classic ingredients, the 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue also benefits from Gibson Custom’s 20th Anniversary Specifications, newly adopted for 2013. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye beneath its nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
A guitar that contains all the crucial Les Paul ingredients, with a less showy maple top that is sometimes considered more authentic looking than those with highly detailed figuring.
