Description

As close to an original '58 as you can get.

The 1959 Model is generally seen as the peak of the evolution of the Les Paul. In 1959 the neck shape of the Les Paul became a little slimmer and wider, fatter jumbo frets, which facilitated more dramatic bends were added. In addition to that it seems, that the workers took more care in the selection of the wood for the maple tops, which sometimes had a really spectacular figure. The real force of these changes was not felt until the mid 1960s, when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the ???59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the ???59 Les Paul as the Holy Grail of guitars in the minds of professionals, collectors and weekend warriors.

VOS stands for Vintage Original Spec. The finishing process on VOS models has been customised to reflect the way Gibson finished Les Paul guitars back in the '50s. They receive a thinner nitro-cellulose lacquer finish which is applied, sanded, and buffed by hand; in other words, more care is put into the finishing process. This extra care is intended to make VOS guitars look like gently aged and well-cared-for vintage guitars. It also helps the guitars 'breathe' better and therefore to resonate and sustain more freely, making them much better instruments.

Gibson Custom Shop
The Gibson Custom Shop was founded in 1993 with only five employees. Initially the purpose was to take care of individual orders, the endorser and special models.
The Custom Shop's first spectacular action was the revision of the '59 and '60 Les Paul Flametop Reissues. A lot of changes were to be made, to make the reissue as authentic and close to the old originals as possible.
Today around 80 experts are working at the Custom Shop, who cover all areas ranging from "one-off" instruments to limited runs and R&D.
