2016 Gibson 1958 Les Paul Reissue Fool’s Gold ’58 is a Limited Run Historic by the Gibson Custom Shop!

The 2016 Gibson 1958 Les Paul Reissue Fool’s Gold ’58 has been taken a step further. With the addition of a beautifully figured maple flame top and an amazing custom finish, you have a guitar that combines vintage specifications and true elegance. This Les Paul features a unique one-of-a-kind finish application referred to as Fool’s Gold. Like the description implies, “Fool’s Gold” is an expression to describe when novice inspector’s mistook tiny pieces of pyrite for Gold when panning in the old mining days. The initial appearance is a slightly darker burst than the traditional Iced Tea finish, but upon closer inspection, you see the infusion of the custom gold process around the burst/body perimeter. Note: the gold infusion is extremely hard to photograph but look at the vertical body picture & you will see it on the left side. A truly unique & vibrant finish!

The 2016 Gibson 1958 Les Paul Reissue Fool’s Gold ’58 delivers the tone, looks and feel of the original ’58 model. This hand-crafted beauty features authentic vintage Gibson tone and historic appointments plus historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue construction and hand sprayed Nitro-Cellulose finish that ages & breaths like the originals. The most important details that made the original a legend are artfully revived for a convincing vintage playing experience.

One Piece, lightweight Genuine Mahogany Body and carved maple top combination are key to the legendary Les Paul tone. One Piece, high-quality Mahogany neck with historic Long Tenon & hide glue neck construction is vintage-correct, designed for optmum sound transfer and carved to an authentic ’58 profile. Solid one-piece Rosewood fingerboard for Les Paul tone and feel.

When plugged in, the Fool’s Gold ’58 comes alive with tone & sounds as incredible as it looks & feels, thanks to a pair of Custom Bucker Pickups that are without a doubt the best reproduction PAFs yet. The Custom Buckers are designed to closely match the original PAFs for authentic tone.

The Custom Buckers are very full and punchy sounding with amazing articulation & detail. They clean up beautifully when rolling off the volume and have amazing response to picking dynamics. Each is made with an Alnico 3 magnet and wound with accurate plain-enamel 42 AWG plain-enamel wire and definitely capture the mojo of the original 1958 Les Paul!

Iconic 1958 Les Paul specs, incredible figured maple top, gorgeous custom Fool’s Gold finish in a fantastic burst with warm color transition, super resonant with tremendous note bloom & tone, weighs in at a ultra-light 8.5 pounds, you have the ultimate Les Paul!

The 2016 Gibson 1958 Les Paul Reissue Fool’s Gold ’58 was meticulously hand crafted at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, TN. It has like all Gibson custom Shop instruments produced today, been PLEK’d which insures the very best possible regarding playability!
