OVERVIEW

The whole enchilada with a gleaming, bouncy Bigsby.

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 one-piece mahogany neck with long tenon, it generates a warmer, friendlier tone than the standard. A gold Bigsby looks cool and lets you put a little wiggle in your chords. The finish is ebony just like the original and the VOS treatment gently ages it to look like an especially well cared for original.

FEATURES
  • Carved mahogany top
  • Solid, non-weight relieved mahogany back
  • Mahogany neck with long tenon
  • 22-fret ebony fingerboard
  • Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups
  • Holly headstock veneer

  • Vintage Original Spec aging treatment
  • Gold hardware
  • Bumble bee caps
  • CTS pots
  • Green tulip tuners
  • 24-3/4" scale
  • 1-11/16" nut width

Act now and enjoy one of the coolest guitars ever! We guarantee you'll love it.

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

I rated all features a "5" but want to advise viewers of the pictures that the "gold tuners" shown on the images are wrong and misleading. The tuners are actually "green tulip tuners" as described in the specs.

REFERENCE GUITAR

By deGary

from Antwerpen (Belgium)

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

I am luthier in my spare time. Since I own this Gibson, I use it as reference. If a newbuild guitar is not as good, I burn it. If it is as good, I sell it. If it is better, I adore it.I think it is a perfect guitar for sound-freaks.It has a human, not mecanical feel. When I play it, I forget I'm not Jimmy Page (believe me ... I'm not!)

By Backyarded

from Hull Qc

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

I have owned the Les Paul 57 for more than 2 years now, and the only issue with this guitar used to be the Bigsby . I found out that the key to getting your Bigsby working properly, lies in the way you stringed your instrument and a lot of people just don't realize that. Now the guitar stays in tune all the time. As for the neck, the Pleck treatment makes the guitar play like butter. Every notes sounds absolutely perfect. The pickups are simply fabulous with endless sustain. The overall quality of the LP is worth the money I have invested... big time !

les paul custom/bigsby

By Anonymous

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

I played this at my local guitar shop and it was horrible! The bigsby put the strings out of tune, there was lots of fret buzzing on the 12 fret. The pickups were ok, heard better, and the finish was kinda rough in some places. Not what you would expect. Overall high priced novelty.
