Here’s a Gibson Custom Shop R8 1958 Les Paul plain top finished in a washed cherry VOS. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, fat 58 C neck carve, hide glue fit top and fingerboard, CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers, paper-in-oil capacitors and historic Lifton style case with all case candy, certificate of authenticity booklet. Great guitar. Just under 8 3/4 pounds of Historic tone.
“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.”
