Selling my 2016 1958 Les Paul Reisssue. I’m the original owner. The finish is lemon burst, and it is the VOS finish. Shipping fully insured, signature required.
It is in good condition. There is some normal playing wear, but nothing I could get to show up in a photograph. There is one bit of checking near the treble side bridge post. No other checking has developed yet.
The guitar has had several upgrades:
-Brass bridge posts (like the originals)
-Vintage centralab pots from the early 1960s
-Luxe repro bumblebee caps (Gibson was using “fake bees” in 2016)
-Brandonwound limited edition PAF clones (#1 of 25) with vintage Gibson magnets from a 1950s P90
**all upgrades were done by professionals** I’ve only ever entrusted the maintenance of this guitar to one luthier.
I had planned other upgrades, but I just don’t play this as much because of the thicker neck. I have another LP with a thinner neck that I play a lot so I’m moving this one.
I’ve never gigged this guitar. It’s been used sparingly in my smoke free home studio. It’s currently set up with .09 strings, top wrapped.
This thing really does have the the sound that you might associate with a vintage Gibson. It’s the best Les Paul Reissue I’ve ever heard. Of course I would say that, it’s my guitar, right? But I’ve heard this from several people who’ve all played abcs owned these guitars.
Let me know if you have any questions!
