description: you are bidding on a used  2012 gibson custom shop historic 1958 les paul lightly aged les paul with original hard case.

built in nashville, tennessee by the gibson custom shop, this guitar is a faithful recreation of one of the most sought after electric guitars, the 1958 gibson les paul model in cherry sunburst.

the les paul model (later les paul standard) made between 1958 - 1960 are revered for many reasons. it's neck shape, while thicker than the models from '59 and '60, provide an excellent balance to the overall weight of the guitar and help add a great deal of sustain and tone. the late 50's les pauls also featured humbucker pickups so new that they were still in the process of receiving a patent (hence, patent applied for, or paf pickups), and a sunburst finish that helped show off the beautiful flame of the maple top.

the historic 1958 les paul features a pair of burstbucker humbucking pickups, featuring alnico ii magnets with two bobbins with 42awg copper wire that are ever so slightly mismatched, just like the real paf's. a beefy, yet comfortable neck typical of the les pauls that came off of the line in 1958. the headstock is pitched at the correct angle, with holly veneer and in-line kluson style tuners, small details that have changed since the original les paul model ceased production in 1960. the neck is set to the mahogany body using a long tenon to maximize the transfer of vibration between the neck and the body, and facilities the sustain that makes the les paul famous.    this is a 2012 model, so yes, it does have a 2 piece rosewood fretboard, but it does not effect the sound or playability in any way whatsoever.

this guitar is in excellent condition with only intentional wear. this guitar is a limited run of lightly aged reissues, making this guitar look like a vintage guitar that was used, but not abused for 50 plus years. this guitar is finished with a faded cherry sunburst over it's maple cap and a deep red finish for it's mahogany back.

this guitar comes with it's original case and certificate of authenticity.

this guitar is in excellent shape, as all of the aging is intentional.  weighs 9 pounds, 1 ounce, and still has that new guitar smell!  comes with original case.  buy now before it's gone forever!
