A great example of the quality produced by the Gibson Custom Shop, this 2010 Gibson Custom Shop R7 Les Paul VOS is a fantastic playing and sounding guitar. Designed to accurately recreate the Les Paul Standard models produced during the latter half of 1957, this guitar features period correct construction and details that accurately recreate the feel, tone and looks of the original vintage examples for a fraction of the price.
Constructed from a one piece Honduras Mahogany body and maple cap, this guitar features the long neck tenon design, custom wound Custom Bucker pickups and the VOS finish treatment with aged binding and a hand wet sanded lacquer finish. These 1957 models were the first Les Pauls to be fitted with the famed PAF pickups, and the Custombuckers perfectly capture the dynamic, articulate and mellow power of original PAFs, while the lightly aged gold top finish is one of the most iconic Les Paul looks. Other features include period correct ABR1 bridge lightweight aluminium tailpiece, vintage style plastic parts, single ring, single line Kluson style tuners, and a chunky 1957 neck carve.
This guitar is in excellent condition and includes its original case and paperwork. This has been given a full service and set up by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, which includes a 3 year warranty.
