The beauty of the Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar VOS Ebony is a blast from the past with a couple very special features. Not only is the Ebony finish a limited edition, this beauty from the Vintage Original Spec series has a 1-piece top.
All the gorgeous tone of "Patent Applied For" humbuckers the first year they came out with the sustain benefit of a 1-piece top - it just doesn't get much better. Now called BurstBuckers (a 1 at the neck and a 2 at the bridge), the pickups are joined to the original CTS pots and bumble bee caps for totally authentic Les Paul tone. The Early '50s rounded neck profile provides vintage Gibson feel, too.
Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

Mahogany body with carved maple top
Early '50's rounded mahogany neck w/original-style truss rod route
Rosewood fretboard with vintage trapezoid inlays

The Gibson Custom Shop Products are light years better than the Gibson USA products. The feel and tone of a Custom Shop Guitar is priceless and just can't be beat. I love the chunkier neck profiles and the extra resonance the long neck tenon provides. I wasn't to fond of the VOS finish at first but it "grew" on me. A MUST HAVE!
I absolutely love this guitar. I admit that i don't actually own it, but i sure wish i did! I tried it out at a friends house one day last week, and have been back many times since! The goldish knobs match the black body very well in my opinion, and the yellowish trim is very nice also. I really like the smoothness of the neck, and it stays in tune very very well. The BurstBuckers sound awesome. All in all, this is just a great guitar.
