OVERVIEW

The hottest thing happening in 1957.

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.

'57 RI Les Paul Custom

By JohnnyCrash

from California

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

I got my '57 reissue a few years ago and it is one of my favorite guitars. The neck is nice and meaty, the pickups warm but still clear and bright, and the worksmanship is great. In 20 years my guitar will still hold it's value, but I will never sell it anyway.

VOS 57 paul Custom 2 Pickups

By Mikestrat

from Milwaukee

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

I did not expect the finish, but it sounds loud and best through a Marshall. It needs power to make it worth the money. Next to the best strats made, I have two ash American's with S1, it reaches an overdrive sound with less power, but for recording use an amp and mic. Then you hear the power in the great pickups with genuine overdrive.
