    A luxurious flash from the past.

    In 1957, when Seth Lover introduced his amazing new humbucking pickups--exactly like the ones on this Gibson 1957 Les Paul Custom 3 Pickup VOS--Gibson decided the Custom would one-up the Standard by providing the option of 3 pickups. Featuring the classic carved mahogany top on a solid, non-weight relieved mahogany back with 1-piece mahogany neck with long tenon, it generates a warmer, friendlier tone than the standard. The finish is ebony just like the original and the VOS treatment gently ages it to look like an especially well cared for original.

    Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

    Awesome

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom 3 Pickup VOS Electric Guitar:

    This is the sixth Les Paul I have owned. The 1957 reissue custom is my favorite without a doubt. It has a variety of sounds with the three pickups, I can get it to sound like a Telecaster. The quality is the best and so is the sound. The neck is great and comes ready to play!

    V good guitar incredible fretboard

    By Stratoblaster

    from Nashville

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom 3 Pickup VOS Electric Guitar:

    This is one smooth axe. While I customized the pickups, 490R neck, 57 PAF mid, 498T bridge, the tone this machine gives is wonderful. The body is absolutely brilliant, and the fretboard is heaven. For those of you who have not played an ebony fretboard, you are missing THE smoothest playing surface available. I have a real hard time, I mean VERY hard time, playing any other LP after picking on the BB. It is sublime.

    By LesPaulGuy

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom 3 Pickup VOS Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for 10 years. Nice, fat 50's style neck. Tone, sound, and playability. It is everything a Les Paul should be.
