Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue

$ 3700.00

Hi there!

I got this guitar a few months back from Thunder Road here in Portland, Oregon.

I got back into electric guitar in the last year, and I always used to play Les Pauls, so I treated myself to this R8. I’ve only been playing country type stuff so the R8 has been in its case not getting much attention. It’s a dreamboat!

Thunder Road called the finish Iced Tea, and a receipt from Chicago Music Exchange in the case describes it as “Aged Lemonburst VOS.” The guitar has no notable fret, neck, or body wear and plays pretty effortlessly at about 2mm on the low E side. I’m OCD about fret buzz, and this guitar is as good as I ever see. The Custombucker III’s are very very nice.

The weight is right around 8.5lbs. I’m reaching out to Thunder Road for the exact number, but I remember that much from the original listing on their site.

The only thing worth mentioning is that this guitar has the binding dye bleed thing going on. Defect or enhancement? I asked a local shop about the issue, and they said that Gibson wouldn’t even ensure that ordered guitars wouldn’t have bleed.

Includes COA and case candy (stickers!)
