With a stunning, flame maple top and in MINT condition this R0 also has the right neck profile and sounds to match...
Sorry, this item was sold out.
A stone-cold classic from Gibson’s Nashville Custom Shop - a 1960 reissue in washed cherry with the requisite reflector knobs and double-ring tuners. This guitar, from 2011, is completely stock and in mint condition - it looks like it came out of the factory yesterday. With a stunning book-matched maple top, an agreeable weight and a dark rosewood board (the likes of which you won’t see on a current reissue), this is the perfect R0.
Here’s what Gibson have to say…
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.
1960 was the last year for the original Les Paul Standard, nearly identical to a 1959 model except for a few specs. Most notably, it features a fast-playing slim neck profile, beloved by the many famous musicians who played ‘60 Bursts including Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, and Paul McCartney. It also has “”reflector”” Volume & Tone knobs and wider “”double-ring”” tuner tips. The Custom Shop 1960 Les Paul Standard Reissue is a clone of the originals from the hide-glue construction to the chemically re-engineered plastic parts. Each one is built with extreme care, reverence and attention to detail by expert Custom Shop craftspeople who are committed to providing an authentic vintage ownership experience.
