Great design is timeless and lasts a lifetime. It stays true to its original concept and stands up for its core intention and development. With this in mind let us introduce the 2014 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Reissue. Taking things right back to the start, the 2014 VOS 1957 Reissue Custom Shop is an extremely accurate reproduction of one of the original Les Paul guitars! VOS (Vintage Original Spec) really does what it says on the tin. It features traditional cosmetic such as slightly worn finishes, delicately matted nickel hardware and boasts original build methods, giving you an authentic brand-new guitar that looks and feels like it’s been crafted back in the 50/60s! Featuring a one-piece rosewood fretboard, this beautiful six-string takes you back decades and lets you relive the inspirational instrument that set the world on fire!
While the 2013 Gibson Custom Shop Reissue only used Hide glue in the Neck Joint, the 2014 model uses Hide glue in the Neck Joint, the Fretboard and the Nut, which is the way all Les Pauls were made in 1957. Gibson’s ‘120th Anniversary’ decal (normally found on the 12th fret inlay) has been moved and now resides on the back plate of the toggle switch, providing a much more authentic appearance from the front.
1957 saw another key development in the evolution of the Gibson Les Paul guitar, which came in the form of the new PAF pickup. This stunning Custom Shop 1957 Goldtop Reissue Guitar features Gibson’s modern equivalent, the most accurate 50s PAF reissue pickup to date, also known as the “Custom Bucker” pickup. Exhibiting awesome vintage sound, this charming, highly-accurate reproduction of one of the world’s first ultra-desirable solid body electric guitar really is the real deal!
Gibson Custom Shop guitars focus on quality over quantity. This means when you purchase a Gibson Custom Shop Reissue guitar, you’re paying for an instrument that exudes Gibson’s highest standards of quality, with luthiers paying extremely close attention to every single detail when manufacturing these iconic guitars. With production focused upon build quality and not about selling in bulk, you are reassured that the guitar you buy has been developed with intricate care and will remain a special part of your guitar collection, forever!
