With the Gibson 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Std V1 VOS, seen here with a Deep Cherry Sunburst finish, you get a superb electric guitar that accurately recreates the feel, tone, and looks of those iconic early 1960 models.
A Celebration Of An Icon
As a celebration of the Les Paul's early evolution, the Gibson Custom Shop artisans have recreated three incredible models based on those released throughout 1960.
In this case we have the V1 - a Les Paul Standard released during the early part of 1960, and which features the same specs as those much-coveted late 1959-to-early-1960 models.

To achieve VOS status - as this guitar has - a Gibson guitar needs to feature as much authenticity to the model it represents as possible.
In the case of this V1 model, we have a guitar with the exact same specs as the Les Paul Standards released during the early 1960s - essentially the same as those much-lauded 1959 classics.
As with the original 1960 Les Paul Standard, this 60th Anniversary Custom Shop model features a solid Mahogany back piece, and is topped with a two-piece Figured Maple cap, fixed in place with genuine hide glue.
In addition to this, there's a solid Mahogany neck carved with an authentic '59 Medium C-profile shape, and topped with a Rosewood fingerboard.
All in all the guitar looks, plays, and feels like a genuinely vintage Les Paul Standard, making it a fitting tribute to the guitar which helped shape the sound of modern music.
Over the decades many pickup makers have attempted to recreate the magical tone of the original PAF humbuckers, and many of them fall short - but not with the Gibson Custombucker!
Thanks to the Alnico III magnets in them, these pickups deliver a mellow, smooth, and rounded tone - the closest you can get to the original PAF's - and are favoured by countless professional players the world over.
Unfortunately this amazing guitar is available in limited numbers only, so be sure to get in touch with our Online Sales Team directly if you'd like to query its availability.
