2016 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul ’58 Historic Reissue VOS (SOLD)

It’s such a wonderful 58 Les Paul Reissue…in the classic “Iced Tea Burst” colour (actually, all these colours were upgraded in 2013, these are more accurate than ever!)…this certanly has the Mark Knopler Les Paul look 🙂

Check my demo videos with it:

I don’t think I need to write much about this as it’s such a well-known model. This is the latest R8 model. It’s from 2016 with all the features we all love:
One-piece rosewood fingerboards
Aniline Dye
Kluson Deluxe machine heads
Hot Hide Glue Neck Fit
Custom Buckers
Historic Truss Rod Assembly (no tubing)
Accurate body and fingerboard binding color
…these guitars are second to none in every aspect.

It really plays and sounds as you expect from a Custom Shop Gibson! These Custombucker pickups are phenomenal!

This is in MINT condition. I’ve found one little finish issue with it, I think it left the Gibson factory like this or caused by natural ageing (have a look at the photos please), it’s really just a very small thingy and it looks good on an already factory aged guitar (VOS)…nothing else, no fret wear, it’s not been played properly at all! This has been a typical case queen guitar.

It comes with its original Gibson Custom Shop case (as clean as the guitar, no damages on it at all), Custom Shop certificate, hang tags etc…have a look at the pictures!

This guitar plays as nice as it looks and it appears to have spent 99% of it’s time in the case. A very exciting guitar for the collector or player and a nice buy on a latest model Custom Shop R8 at £2700. SOLD
