Gibson Custom

collapse expand iconDescription

The Gibson Custom 60 Les Paul Standard VOS pays homage to the last year of the original Les Paul with painstaking accuracy. Its mahogany body and figured maple top provide the resonant tone and stunning looks of the 1960 original. The slim taper neck profile offers a fast, comfortable playing feel, while the reflector knobs add vintage-inspired style.

Authentic 1960 Construction

With a mahogany body and figured maple top, the 60 Les Paul Standard VOS looks and sounds like the real thing. The mahogany contributes a warm, balanced tone, while the figured maple adds clarity and definition. Together, these tonewoods produce the Les Paul's legendary sound. The slim taper neck profile, with its rounded edges, fits comfortably in your hand and allows for quick movement across the 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.

Vintage-Inspired Components

From its reflector knobs to its Custom Bucker pickups, the 60 Les Paul Standard VOS is loaded with vintage-style appointments. The Custom Bucker pickups provide the musical tones of the original PAF humbuckers, with clarity, balance and just the right amount of output. CTS potentiometers and orange drop capacitors deliver transparent and dynamic tone shaping.

VOS Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

The VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the 60 Les Paul Standard VOS an authentic aged patina right out of the case. As the finish ages, it will develop an amber tint and light checking for a vintage look. The VOS process accelerates the aging process to provide instant vintage appeal while allowing the wood to breathe naturally for the best tone.

PAF-Inspired Humbuckers

The Gibson Custom 60 Les Paul Standard VOS features PAF-inspired humbucking pickups for the warm, articulate tone that shaped rock music. The neck pickup delivers a full, rounded tone perfect for rhythm playing. The bridge pickup provides biting trebles and a hint of snarl when overdriven, ideal for solos. Adjust the volume and tone knobs to dial in anything from warm cleans to cranked rock tones.
