    Worth every penny!

    This guitar sounds so good it just out does anything that I have ever played. Itís tone is truly amazing, it is my favorite guitar and I have others that I like as well but none compare to this.
    I am retired now for the past 2 years going on 3 years and I decided that I would like to learn to be a blues guitarist in my old age now that I have time. I used to play acoustic in my 20ís and I enjoyed it but to be honest I was never very good. I have been taking lessons from Dennis Dullea who also lives in Fort Worth. I am now on my 3rd year of taking a weekly lesson from Dennis who I believe is the best blues player in the Dallas Fort Worth area and a wonderful teacher.
    When I first thought of getting a VOS Les Paul I contacted Nick Lamendola at Dennisí recommendation and talked with him about it. I was undecided and to spend that much money was a big deal to me. When I told Nick that it was just too much and I was happy with my Les Paul classic gold top that was 10 years old he accepted that and did not pressure me in any way.
    A month or so went by and Dennis bought a 1960 VOS and when I went to my weekly lesson I was smitten by the wonderful sounds that came out of that guitar. I had to have one!
    I talked with Dennis about it and since Iím not that great a guitar player was I justified in having something that nice. Dennis advised me that like everything else it will go up in price in the next few years and will be a good investment. I didnít want it for that reason but I wanted it because it just sounded so good!!!!
    I called Nick Lamendola and bought the consecutive serial number to the one Dennis had purchased. Nick took care of the transaction and made sure everything was correct on the guitar. I havenít looked back and this guitar inspires me to become better.

    Amazing detail & God Tone.

    Unless you have an extra $350,000.00 laying around this is as close as you will ever get to the real thing. I truly believe that Gibson finally got it right.
    I have been a Texas Blues Guitarist since 1967, and over the years have owned dozens of Les Pauls, and have been lucky enough to have played several real 59-1960 Sunburst LP's. I have to honestly say that my 1960 VOS plays BETTER and sounds just as good the old ones.
    I was a pretty much STUNNED when I opened the case...This thing even SMELLED old!
    You will NOT find a better price or better service than you will at Sweetwater. Having your own personal sales engineer is a BIG plus. I know that If I have a problem...all I have to do is call NICK LAMENDOLA and he will make it right...No matter what.
    Yes, it's a big chunk of $$$, But if you want the very best there is...you can't beat this 1960 1960 Custom Reissue VOS.
    Watch out for the 1960 LP's they are selling at the other big box store for $3999.00. They are NOT THE SAME THING as the REAL Custom shop "Historic VOS" that you get here at Sweetwater.

    I had to buy one, It has the Vintage tone and amazing Neck .

    Best tone ever and fits like a glove. I love the 60's thin necks. Truly amazing guitar for any style of music. Great sustain and harmonics. The Serial Number is 001213. Mark Schriber from Sweet Water had the guitar checked out and gone over by there Engineer before shipping it. It was and still is perfect. No complaints, Super happy! The value has gone up considerably since last year. It's a great investment but I'll never sell it.
