This truly gorgeous Gibson Custom 58 Les Paul Standard Reissue (R8) from 2011 is in excellent condition and features a plain top with Lemon Drop finish.
During the first years of the model's production, Gibson updated the original design of the Les Paul several times. The then new additions are the features that ultimately made Les Pauls from the late fifties so popular and sought-after. Among these new innovations were, first of all, two humbuckers, a stop-tailpiece and a ABR-1 bridge. In 1958, eventually, the famous sunburst finish was introduced, that showed the grain of the maple top. Later, in 1959 Gibson would use highly figured flamed maple tops exclusively, but in 1958 the majority was what we now call “plain tops”.
Although a sunburst finish was the only option back then, Gibson now reissues these guitars in a variety of colors based on the unique ways the original bursts faded over the years. Lemon Drop is one of these stunning colors, resembling a sunburst finish with the original reds almost entirely faded away, leaving just the yellow - and showcasing the wood underneath.
This guitar sounds and plays even more amazing than it looks. The pair of superbly accurate Custom Bucker pickups, re-created from precise study and measurement of original PAFs, make sure that the legendary Burst tone is all there.
The guitar has slight traces of use and small dents on its back. As mentioned, it comes in its original hardshell case. The certificate of authenticity is included as well.
