Gibson Custom True Historic 1958 Les Paul Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • True Historic appointments are more authentic than ever
  • Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe
  • Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
True Historic appointments are more authentic than ever

When you need all that an original 1958 Les Paul has to offer you'll truly appreciate the Gibson Custom True Historic 1958 Les Paul electric guitar. From the neck and fretboard being attached using hide glue to using an original spec truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor, we're talking accurate reproduction down to the last detail. Gibson even analyzed the vintage plastics on the Kluson tuners down to the molecular level to ensure accurate reproductions. Take it from Sweetwater's guitar experts, the Gibson Custom True Historic 1958 Les Paul is one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

Every inch of this Les Paul has vibe

To revive the essence of the original 1958 Les Paul Standard guitar, Gibson painstakingly re-created each part of the True Historic 1958 piece-by-piece. The original non-weight-relieved mahogany body, double-carved maple top, thinner finish and peghead veneer are only the beginning. Not only do you get the '58 neck profile you've been craving, but the accuracy of the details go all the way down to the straight-line positioning of the True Historic 1958 Les Paul's vintage-style Kluson Green Key tuners, the size and shape of the acrylic trapezoid block inlays, and the '50-style long neck tenon joint.

Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the True Historic 1958 Les Paul'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 1958 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the True Historic 1958 Les Paul sports a pair of Gibson's Custom Bucker humbuckers. The Custom Bucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a 1958 Les Paul!

Gibson Custom True Historic 1958 Les Paul Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Gibson's most accurate re-creation of a 1958 Les Paul Standard to date
  • Every detail meticulously re-created to give you the look, sound, and feel of a vintage 1958 model
  • Vintage non-weight-relieved mahogany body with double-carved, hand wet-sanded finish
  • Period-correct Les Paul neck profile topped with a solid Indian rosewood fretboard
  • Authentic details include vintage-style Kluson Green Key tuners, holly-head veneer headstock, and original acrylic trapezoid block inlays
  • Custom Bucker pickups for dead-on vintage PAF tone
  • Hide-glued mahogany neck with extended neck tenon for exceptional sustain and response
  • Period-correct Aniline dye body and neck
  • Hardshell case included

So nice

This guitar pictured is the one I bought. The top is beautiful so much grain, stunning. The pickups are hot when cranked but are easily controlled with a little volume rolled off, sweet. The neck is ridiculous no peers in my opinion super comfy not fat. This is my second true historic the quality is superb.
