    Limited edition built to '60 Standard specs with plain maple top.

    The Gibson Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar is a beautiful Les Paul, and with its correct historical serial number, you'll want in your collection. In 1960, the Les Paul Standard still had the flame maple top, sunburst finish and specially spec'd Live Bucker pickups of its predecessors with an added slim-tapered neck for a decidedly different feel. This 1960 Les Paul Reissue has a plain top with Orange Fade finish while capturing the essence of the original guitar accurately and in great detail. This Limited Edition features an exact duplication of the neck pitch set to 1960 specs, and a rare Orange Fade finish.

    Using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and modern technology, the luthiers of the Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define cool, vintage musical instruments: stunning looks, flawless playability, and unsurpassed tone. A solid mahogany back, historically accurate long neck tenon for superior strength and sustain, period correct neck profiles, hardware and electronics, and 100% nitrocellulose lacquer are all part of this special Gibson Custom Shop guitar. Gibson includes a hardshell case with your 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue.


    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 Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

      Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue VOS Electric Guitar:

      One of the best value for money les paul standards reissues you can buy. If your used to playing a stratocaster then I suggest you try a 1960 Les paul standard reissue if you are looking to buy a les paul. The neck suits me after playing strats for over twenty years.
      The custom shop guitars are very good guitars in general.

          Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Plaintop Reissue VOS Electric Guitar:

          Wow, this thing rocks... If you want a beautiful understated guitar that u wont be apprehensive to rip into, this is it.. every bit as good as the more expensive custom reissues without the price. Never heard of these "livebucker" pickups but the name really says it all, these things are bursting with thick, spongy tonal bliss... Neck is perfect and body is solid but light 8 1/2 lbs... With Gibson u rarely feel like u got a steal, this is your chance...My 59 reissue hasn't seen the light of day since I got this baby.
