Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue VOS

Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue VOS Electric Guitar Autumn Burst


Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue VOS Electric Guitar Autumn Burst


The Gibson Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar is a beautiful Les Paul, and with its correct historical serial number, you'll want in your collection. In 1960, the Les Paul Standard still had the flame maple top, sunburst finish and BurstBucker pickups of its predecessors with an added slim-tapered neck for a decidedly different feel. This 1960 Les Paul Reissue has a plaintop with Autumn Burst finish, yet still captures the essence of the original guitar accurately and in great detail. This Limited Edition features an exact duplication of the neck pitch set to 1960 specs, and a rare Autumn Burst finish.

Using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and modern technology, the luthiers of the Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define cool, vintage musical instruments: stunning looks, flawless playability, and unsurpassed tone. Solid mahogany back, historically accurate long neck tenon for superior strength and sustain, period correct neck profiles, hardware and electronics, and 100% nitrocellulose lacquer are all part of this special Gibson Custom Shop guitar. Gibson includes a hardshell case with your 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue.

Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

Gibson Custom 1955 Les Paul Historic Wraptail

Gibson Custom 1955 Les Paul Historic Wraptail Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst


Gibson Custom 1955 Les Paul Historic Wraptail Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst


In the mid-50s, a sunburst finish was not an available option on a Les Paul. In 1958, Goldtops were phased out and a cherry sunburst became the standard finish. Sunburst finishes became all the rage with some really popular artists such as Clapton and Bloomfield using late 50s 'Bursts. The single-cut Gibson Les Paul electric guitars were discontinued in '60-'61 and were not reintroduced for several years. Many players started stripping the gold off the top of their early-mid 50s Les Paul guitars and would have them refinished to emulate the desirable sunburst Les Pauls. The Gibson Custom Refin Hot-Mod features a beautiful sunburst top and even has an offset center seam to emulate the originals.

The hot-mod angle on the Gibson Custom Refin Hot-Mod 1955 Les Paul electric guitar is based on the idea of a 1955 Les Paul that was later modified with humbucker pickups (introduced by Gibson in 1957). The classic combination of the mapled-topped mahogany body with wraptail bridge and humbuckers delivers a glorious monster tone that introduces a comfortable and

resonant neck profile.

BurstBucker humbuckers
The BurstBucker 1 neck humbucker replicates the sounds from Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups, are slightly underwound, with medium "vintage" output. The BurstBucker 2 is a humbucking pickup wound in the range of Gibson's '57 Classic for replica sound. Unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, just like the original. Slightly hotter than the BurstBucker 1, the 2 works well in the bridge position with a BurstBucker 1 pickup in the neck position.

TonePros "Wraptail" Bridge/Tailpiece
The TonePros "Wraptail" vintage-style one-piece wraparound bridge/tailpiece has locking steel studs mounted into long steel anchors for superior tone transference. A classic piece of hardware, the wraparound bridge/tailpiece on the '55 Les Paul Guitar offers a simplicity and functionality that is hard to match. It provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust intonation and string height as needed. This yields an incredible union between the strings and body, resulting in excellent tone and sustain.


Soft Shoulder '55 Neck Profile
The Soft Shoulder '55 neck profile makes the Gibson Les Paul Refin Hot-Mod sit in your hand like no other guitar neck. Gibson's guitar team chose a '55 Les Paul that had a neck with a "magical feel" to serve as a model for the Soft Shoulder '55 neck. The depth is the same from the top of the fretboard to the back of the neck as the rounded '50s neck, yet has gently sloping sides that sit comfortably in your hand.

Year of 1955 Innovation
1955 was a year of great innovation in all areas of American life. 1955 saw the dawn of the United States space program. The first of the classic V8
Chevrolets hit dealerships all over the country, reflecti

Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Historic Reissue VOS Electric Guitar Extra Faded Cherry


Gibson Custom 1959 Les Paul Historic Reissue VOS Electric Guitar Extra Faded Cherry


This Gibson 1959 Les Paul Historic Reissue VOS Electric Guitar is unique because of its special Extra Faded Cherry finish. Only 25 are built for the entire world.

In 1959, the Les Paul Standard made a change to wider, fatter jumbo frets which made it a more facile guitar. The significance of this change wouldn't be felt until the late '60s when Clapton, Bloomfield, Peter Green, and other emerging guitarists discovered its warm, thick BurstBucker voice and fast, smooth and easy-playing neck. Then the Les Paul began its ascent toward ultimate icon status.

Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1959 Les Paul Historic Reissue is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case and a certificate of authenticity.
