Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The rebirth of a legendary Les Paul
The original 1960 Les Paul Standard guitar established the Les Paul as a staple of the rock-music world. Although Gibson only shipped about 640 Les Paul Standards in 1959, by the mid 1960s, their new slimmer profile neck and transparent finish (a major departure from the Goldtop) caught the attention of a whole new generation of musicians. When you pick up a Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS, you can imagine how Keith Richards or Eric Clapton felt, trekking through a whole new territory of undiscovered tone.
Historically accurate details
To revive the very essence of the original 1960 Les Paul Standard guitar, Gibson Custom spared no expense, painstakingly recreating each part of the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS piece by piece. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, hand-carved and bookmatched maple top, and holly-head veneer headstock are only the beginning. The accuracy of the details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS's vintage-style tulip tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50-style long neck tenon joint. If you hold the Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS up to the original, you'd be more than hard pressed to tell them apart.
Burstbucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on 1960 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS sports a pair of Gibson's Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers with historically unmatched bobbin windings. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a 1960 Les Paul Standard!
