Here is a Gibson Custom Shop 1960 reissue from 2015 in washed cherry VOS. Once upon a time, there was a CEO at Gibson named Henry who, for reasons no one understood, briefly changed the name of the venerable Historic R0 guitar to the CS0 in 2015. Confusion ensued and cooler (smarter) heads prevailed the next year. This is a 2015 CS0 — which is really the same as an R0 from any other year. Terrific condition, top is clean, one ding on the back. Highly figured top, Custom Buckers, hide glue, rosewood board, Bumblebee caps, the usual appointments with the slim, comfortable 60s neck carve. Terrific guitar. Nice weight at 8 3/4 pounds. She sings. With Lifton case.
“1960 was the last year for the original Les Paul™ Standard, nearly identical to a 1959 model except for a few specs. Most notably, it features a fast-playing slim neck profile, beloved by the many famous musicians who played ’60 Bursts including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, and Paul McCartney. It also has “reflector” Volume & Tone knobs and wider “double-ring” tuner tips. The Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a clone of the originals from the hide-glue construction to the chemically re-engineered plastic parts. Each one is built with extreme care, reverence and attention to detail by expert Custom Shop craftspeople who are committed to providing an authentic vintage ownership experience.”
