Gibson Custom Shop

Part of the vintage appeal of a genuine late 1950's Les Paul Standard, along with the tone, is the feel of the guitar.

With their Authentic '59 Medium "C" neck profile, and solid, non-weight-relief bodies, these VOS guitars accurately recreate that playing experience.

In addition to this, the natural tones generated by a solid mahogany body, solid mahogany neck, and 2-piece figured maple top, combine perfectly with the Custombucker pickups.

VOS - Vintage Original Spec

Incredibly authentic from the tuners down to the wiring and with its Vintage Original Spec (VOS) status, this guitar looks, feels, and sounds exactly like an original 1959 Les Paul Standard.

To achieve VOS status, Gibson's Custom Shop will have created this guitar from the ground up with period-accurate specs: from the hardware and electronics, to even the type of glue used on the neck and fretboard.

Vintage Gibson Voice

Custombucker pickups have been specially designed at the Gibson Custom Shop to recreate those prized PAF-like characteristics.

Due to the Alnico III magnets used in them, these passive, low-output pickups deliver rich tones, with articulate Mid and High frequencies, for that thick, articulate voice the Les Paul is famous for.

These pickups - when combined with the aforementioned tonewoods - help to recreate those rich-yet-articulate tones that launched the original dual-humbucker Les Paul to stardom.
