For sale or trade is my Gibson Custom Shop 58 Reissue Bourbon Burst VOS.
Completely original including COA certificate of authenticity, medallion and Custom Shop case.
The guitar is 4.1kg and was built in 2014 by Gibson Custom Shop to the specifications of the 1958 Les Paul.
2014 was the last year before Gibson introduced the True Historic series and already contains most of the specifications of a True Historic.
Among other things, the Guitar has a Long Tenon Neck, a Hide Glue construction, Grain Filler that has been dyed red with Aniline, and so on.
It has Custombucker pickups with Unmatched Coils that are fitted with an Alnico III magnet to reproduce the original PAF tone.
The neck has a slightly slimmer 58 profile with an asymmetrical neck carve, which is very similar to the 59 profile.
The fingerboard and frets are in very good condition with no nicks from the strings.
The guitar has a very nice 2 Piece Maple Plane Top with a subtle grain with no flame.
It has a one piece Mahogany body and Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard.
The electronics have the legendary Bumblebee Tone Caps soldered in from the factory.
The Les Paul has always been well treated, but has 2-3 minor dings and dongs.
The binding on the neck has some “binding bleed” from the aniline dye Gibson uses on the Historic Reissues.
This makes the reissue more authentic and will fade with time.
