OVERVIEW

A Custom Shop masterpiece!

The Les Paul Custom VOS re-creates the Les Paul Custom as it was at a pivotal moment in its history--the year when the PAF humbuckers became standard issue. These remarkable new pickups gave the Les Paul a thicker sound that was at the time especially unique.

Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the 1957 Les Paul Custom VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. Includes Gibson Custom Shop case and a certificate of authenticity.

Gibson LP VOS Custom

By RandallRox

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom 2 Pickup VOS Electric Guitar:

To start, this is the nicest and best playing guitar i have ever played. The neck is thick, unlike the normal customs, but it's incredibly quick. The Alnico's give it a very nice clean sound, and it sounds great with some high-gain, because it gives off a load of tone. I also have an old Gibson Custom and it isn't near as great as this. It's a little heavy, and is quite expensive, but otherwise, I have absolutely no complaints about this guitar. It's a great buy if you have the money to spend on it.

Unique Les Paul

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom 2 Pickup VOS Electric Guitar:

This guitar feels different that other Les Paul's. It's got an extra thick neck and the fretboard has a better feel imo. It feels like an exceptionally crafted acoustic instrument. Beautiful clean tone with the rhthym switch. This guitar with D'Addario strings seems to always stay in tune. Since it is all Mahogany it sounds different, darker and spacey. It also is heavier than standards from the wood. Gorgeous finish, one of the finest I've ever seen. She's a real beauty and has that unique edge over other LPC's.
