2016 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul 1958 Historic Reissue VOS R8 (SOLD)

I think this model needs no introduction. A legendary guitar from a fantastic year! This has the Mark Knopfler Gibson look and feel 🙂

These 2016 R8s are amazing! The tops are very very figured, almost like an R9, the neck is nice and chunky but not as chunky as the R7, ultra low action due to the plek’ed frets. It’s got the long neck tenon joint, aniline dye, upgraded nitro finish, light VOS treatment on the metal parts…the pickups are simply the best Gibson pickups ever! These Custom Buckers got such a nice presence, clear and airy chime to notes. It’s hard to beat. Second to none playability, amazing tone, endless sustain…

This is in very NEAR MINT condition, I think that someone’s had this under the bed and not played it much! It has very light polishing swirls on the back (nothing serious, no buckle rash), but other than that the guitar has no dings or dents that I can see. Check the photos! I tried to show all these imperfections. I think it’s in way better condition than any B-stock or Ex-display guitars in the high street shops. Just a few typical bedroom playing marks nothing else.

The Gibson Custom hard case (it has a few dirt marks, nothing serious) has all the original tags and paperwork and the Custom Shop certificate!

With a Street price of £3800++, this one is in extremely clean condition, latest 2016 model and a nice buy at £2600! SOLD
