This gorgeous Gibson Historic Les Paul Standard 1958 reissue made in 2018 by the custom shop is lightly aged and finished in a stunning Pale whiskey burst
She is a PSL Pre Sold Limited which means 25 pieces in the world approximately
Its maple top shows a nice subtle flame which is complimented by an unique Pale Whiskey Sunset Burst.
This Historic ’58 Les Paul Standard has been nicely aged showing beautiful weather checking, lacquer-through spots and ‘old’dents on body and neck that give it a certain sense of authenticity.
Even the reliced case has that genuine-feel.
Lightly aging as done on this one is not commonly seen on Gibson Custom Shop Les Pauls.
It has that classic Les Paul sustain, a pair of superb Wolftone pickups replacing the originals Gibson pickups, Marshall head MK2 Alnico v neck and Timberwolf Alnico v bridge. With no cover to make it look like Jimmy page guitar as it looks really close.
A chunky ’58 C profile neck with solid rosewood fretboard and thin fretwire allowing fretboard wood to be more present in the tone profile.
The set neck is hide-glue fit, tuners are vintage-style Kluson’s, and is equipped with CTS potmeters and Bumblebee capacitors.
All this added up, you simply cannot get closer to the real thing, than the real thing!
This 2018 Historic Les Paul ’58 reissue has been pre owned, but shows little to no signs of use other than the lightly aged finish.
