Overview

Looking to invest in a historically-accurate electric guitar, with classic looks, and incredible tone? Then this VOS 60th Anniversary Les Paul Standard from the Gibson Custom Shop could well be for you!

60s Style, Classic Single Cutaway Guitar

To celebrate the early evolution of the Les Paul, the artisans over at the Gibson Custom Shop have recreated three distinct versions based on models released at various times throughout 1960.

For this guitar we have the V3 - a Les Paul Standard released during the latter third of 1960, which features one of the slimmest necks the Les Paul has ever been created with.

Gibson 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard V3 Washed Bourbon Burst Highlights

  • Limited edition, 60's-style Les Paul Standard from the Gibson Custom Shop
  • V3 VOS (Vintage Original Spec) status ensures an incredible level of authenticity
  • Solid Mahogany back capped with a Flamed Maple top piece gives that traditional Les Paul look
  • Wash Bourbon Burst finish
  • Sleek and Slim Mahogany neck sporting a bound 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard with Trapezoid inlays
  • Two delightful Custombucker Alnico III pickups deliver that classic PAF-like tone
  • ABR-1 bridge and stopbar tailpiece offer pin-point intonation
  • Includes deluxe, period-accurate 5-latch hard shell case
  • Available for a limited time only!

Vintage Original Spec

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 this case the guitar features the exact same specifications as the same Les Paul Standards released towards the end of 1960 - including the slimmer neck, not to mention the materials and glue used.

Premium-Grade Construction

True to the original 1960 Les Paul Standard, this 60th Anniversary Custom Shop model features a none-weight-relieved Mahogany back piece, and is capped with a two-piece Figured Maple top, fixed in place with hide glue.

In addition to this, there's a solid Mahogany neck carved with an authentic '60 Skinny C-profile shape, and topped with a Rosewood fingerboard.

Overall the guitar delivers a playing experience that's a combination of rock-solid stability and high-performance - the hallmarks of the guitar it has been built to celebrate.

PAF-Like Tones

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.

Limited Availability

As mentioned above, this incredible guitar will be available for a limited time only, so we recommend you place your order sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.
