This is a Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul 1958 Reissue R8 made in 2007. I have all the certificates. It sold for
This Les Paul plays great and was my main player. I had an original 59 when I was in school this 58 replica plays and sounds as good as the original 59. It actually plays a little nicer due to the frets (read below). Custom case included. Love this guitar but my fingers are getting old and need to hang things up. Hope I can find a good home for it!
The Beginning of the Burst
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.
The 1958 Custom Shop Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character. Available in a variety of classic sunburst shades.
