A fabulous Custom Shop reproduction with a weight relieved chambered body
The Gibson Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Chambered Reissue "VOS" (Vintage Original Spec) Electric Guitar features a beautiful figured maple top done in a gorgeous washed cherry burst finish, and a weight-relieved chambered mahogany back that lets you get through the whole gig in complete comfort with no strain on your back or shoulder. It is cut to the proportions of the original 1960 model, with an accurate carved "dish" (top arch) and single cutaway for upper-fret access. The one-piece mahogany neck has a slim '60s profile and is topped with a rosewood fretboard that is adorned with trapezoid inlays. The design incorporates Gibson's lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument's resonance and sustain. This amazing reproduction is equipped exactly like the original was with the pairing of a Tune-o-matic (ABR-1) bridge and a stopbar tailpiece, and vintage tulip tuners.
Way more than just a looker, though, the 1960 Les Paul Chambered Reissue "VOS" Electric Guitar is also armed to the teeth for tonal splendor with a pair of Gibson's BurstBucker humbucking pickups — a #1 in the neck for smooth, articulate tones and a #2 in the bridge for more sting and punching power. Burstbuckers accurately represent the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s, and are made with unpolished alnico magnets and coils that are wound with unequal turns of 42-gauge enamel-coated wire to induce that single-coil like bite and edge of the originals. Original spec CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors complete the authentic components that recreate the amazing tone of this historic model.
Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibson Les Pauls of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.
All VOS (Vintage Original Spec) series guitars will use a proprietary finishing process that includes unique steps for staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing; subsequently the guitars reflect what a well-cared for 40-year-old guitar looks like. The result is a remarkable patina that will delight even the most discriminating enthusiast.
Order the Les Paul you've always dreamed about.
