GIBSON LES PAUL HISTORIC 59 PSL LTD

Gibson Les Paul Standard 1959 VOS PSL(Pre Sold Limited)

Custom Shop Spec

This guitar has got the feel of a modern Les Paul Standard with the modern neck shape but with the traditional Custom Shop build quality. Gibson have used the longer neck tenon for the neck joint – which is famous for providing a touch more sustain and stability between the neck and body of the guitar.

The hide glue is an older way of joining the Maple Top to the Mahogany body but it provides far great resonance as it pulls the two pieces of wood together and forms a solid connection between the woods rather than a barrier like cheaper glue would. This is a small change but makes a massive difference to the resonance and how the guitar ages – it will only get better with age like a fine acoustic.

All of the plastics on this guitar are from the True Historic line which have been faithfully recreated to be made from the exact same material as Gibson guitars in the 50s and 60s.

VOS Finish

The VOS finish isn’t a reliced finish. It’s more like you put the guitar in it’s case for 50 years and it’s still in immaculate condition but slightly faded and worn. The VOS finish is probably the most popular finish in the Gibson Custom Shop line.
