2016 Gibson Custom Shop Standard Historic Les Paul R8 1958 Gloss Flame Top Washed Cherry 8.85 Pounds

Exposed-wood finish blemish near the bottom strap peg means you save big on a ’58 Les Paul reissue with an otherwise excellent-condition finish!!

The Standard Historic 1958 Standard Les Paul from Gibson Custom delivers the tone, looks and feel of the original ’58, the first of the Gibson’s now infamous Sunburst models. It features hand-crafted beauty, authentic vintage Gibson tone and historic appointments plus historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and the renown sound transference that comes with its long neck tenon. The most important details that made the original a legend are artfully revived for a convincing vintage playing experience.
