Gibson Custom 1960 R0 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS Electric Guitar - Washed Cherry SunburstGibson
Gibson's 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS is as close as you'll get to a perfectly preserved 1960 Les Paul Standard — all without the vintage tax and setup nightmares. This iconic single-cut is a spot-on reproduction of the slim-necked, burst-finished Standard as it stood in stores the farewell year of its original run. Its top-tier tonewoods (mahogany/maple/rosewood) and handwired electronics are the same recipe that has inspired catalogs of hits and generations of guitarists — Clapton to McCartney — worldwide. Historic features and appointments include PAF Custombucker Alnico IIK pickups with CTS pots and paper-in-oil caps, a hide-glued 1960 Slim Taper neck, and single-line/double-ring vintage Kluson tuners. A period-correct VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish completes the package.
If you want all that an original 1960 Les Paul has to offer, you'll appreciate this superb reproduction. From a neck and fretboard attached with hide glue to the use of an original-spec truss rod and cover, we're talking about an accurate reproduction down to the last detail. Gibson even analyzed the vintage plastics on the Kluson tuners at the molecular level to ensure accurate reproductions. This Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS is one of the most accurate re-creations available today.
To revive the essence of the original 1960 Les Paul, Gibson painstakingly re-created each part piece by piece. The surprisingly lightweight mahogany body, 2-piece figured maple top, and solid Indian rosewood fingerboard are only the beginning. Not only do you get the 1960 Slim Taper neck profile, but you also get accuracy of details all the way down to the straight-line positioning of this 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS's vintage-style Kluson tuners and the size and shape of its aged cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays.
Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to this 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS's electronics as they did its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors, every part of its internal signal path was designed to give you absolutely dead-on 1960 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine vintage PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, this Historic 1960 Les Paul sports a pair of Gibson's Custombucker Alnico III humbuckers — some of the most historically accurate PAF copies ever made.
