Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul VOS Goldtop (925)
New 2014 Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Goldtop VOS in stock. The 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue relies on the ingredients that made the Les Paul a classic in the first place, but puts them together in the way that first began to show off what was going on underneath the finish. The Gibson Custom Shop uses a body of solid, non-weight relieved mahogany. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck still has a chunky, rounded '50s profile, which, in combination with the traditional long-tenon neck joint, enhances sustain and resonance as well as feeling great in the hand. In addition to these classic ingredients, the 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue also benefits from Gibson Custom's 20th Anniversary specifications. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, Custom Buckers created in the image of the originals, and period-correct Aniline dye beneath its nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Gibson Custom's Custom Bucker accurately recreates the original PAFs of the late '50s, using Alnico III magnets and unequal turns of 42 AWG wire in each coil for that characteristic PAF "bite." These pickups clean up beautifully at the guitar's volume controls, while Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing "woman tone" when you roll back the tone controls. To top it all off, the 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson's state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor.
