The Gibson Custom Shop '58 Les Paul Standard is a faithful reproduction of the original 1958 Gibson Les Paul. It has been crafted to capture the look, feel and sound of a 1958 Les Paul. And it does not disappoint.
The legendary Les Paul evolved throughout the 1950s, but the major ingredients really came together when the LP earned a tune-o-matic bridge and gained two sweet PAF humbucking pickups to eventually become the most revered weapon in rock.
The Gibson Custom Shop brings together all the key ingredients of the hallowed ’58 Les Paul, crafted with Gibson Custom’s Historic specifications to ensure period-correct looks and features. Select tonewoods, an accurate ’50s neck profile, and two aftermarket Wizz Premium Clone pickups (original pickups in case) join a gorgeous Lemonburst finish with gently aged VOS (Vintage Original Spec) treatment to bring you a superb ’58-style Les Paul.

This particular ’58 Reissue has had only one modifications - the addition of two great sounding Wizz Premium Clone pickups. Other than this, the guitar is in completely original condition, unchanged since new.
The finish on the top, neck & headstock is unmarked. There is some extremely light swirling on the pickguard, but overall next to zero player wear. No dings, dents, or marks anywhere and no buckle rash on the back. The neck is the typical meaty 50s profile – plenty of wood here, but very comfortable to play in all positions.
The frets are fine with little sign of wear. The pickups sound great, and overall this guitar presents in excellent condition at a substantial discount to new price. Gibson Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity is included.
Comes in original Gibson Custom hard shell case in new condition.
