All you want in a '58 Reissue with more resonance and less weight.

The Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Lightly Figured Chambered Les Paul is based on the famed Heritage Reissue Les Paul with two differences. It has a moderately flamed maple top and a chambered one-piece mahogany body that promotes more resonance while reducing the weight of the guitar. This '58 Reissue features a carved plain maple top, and single-ply cream binding on the top. The rounded-profile neck is one-piece mahogany with the original-style truss rod. The rosewood fingerboard is finished with 22 frets, vintage trapezoid inlays, and single-ply cream binding. Seriously scorching output is delivered through dual BurstBucker pickups, tone and volume controls, and a 3-way switch. Electronics include the original CTS pots and bumblebee capacitors for a signal path that's truly vintage.

To protect your investment in quality, this guitar comes complete with a Gibson Custom Shop case and a Certificate of Authenticity.

Comments about Gibson Custom 1958 Lightly Figured Chambered Les Paul Electric Guitar:

these guitars need to be seen and played in person to be believed. i've had mine going on five years now, and i havent regretted it a single day.
features rate a 7, because, well, it's a les paul. it is what it is. two pickups, four knobs and gobs of tone. it does feature one of the prettiest tops i've ever seen -- not a gaudy, over-the-top flame like you see on many R9s. this one looks like something right out of "the beauty of the burst."
outstanding quality. no other way to describe it. it just feels like something made "like they used to." and the tone is to die for. the chambering allows it to ring and sustain like no other les paul i've ever had. add to that the fact that it weighs just under 8 lbs, and you've got something that sounds and feels like a 50-year-old guitar without mortgaging the house.
value is a 5 because these things are amazignly expensive. and as reissues, they'll probably never increase in value too much. but i guess you get what you pay for.
