Offered for sale:
Used 2007 Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS Plain Top Faded Tobacco (Gibson Brands now seems to call the color Bourbon Burst) serial number 87840.
This guitar is in very good showing limited playing time. The pick guard was removed to show the full top but it is included. And we’d be happy to re-installed for the asking. There is a small ding on the treble side near the pick guard mounting screw hole.
“Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.”
“The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally, it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character.”
Imperial Guitar says:
“The Gibson Custom Les Paul Standard ’58 Reissue VOS is about as close as you can get to the original specs, the beautiful VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish captures the depth, and hue of a '58 Les Paul Standard.”
Featuring top-shelf tonewoods, including a solid mahogany body (Did you see that mahogany grain? Striking.); a two-piece “plain” maple top, with a fair amount of bird’s eye; a Chunky C profile neck; Indian rosewood fingerboard with 22 Historic narrow tall Plek’d frets; Burstbucker 1 (R) and Burstbucker 2 (T) pickups. Along with premium historical appointments, including cellulose Trapezoid inlays and vintage-style Kluson tuners.
This is a great guitar! If you’ve ever wanted a ’58, pick this up, close your eyes and you’re there!
Certificate of Authenticity included.
Original hard-shell case included.

Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
