This is a special one and they didnt make this line long because it cost too much to produce! Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul 2015 Reissue True Historic Vintage Lemon 58 R8 + COA and OHSC. Nice subtle top and stunning grain mahogany. These True Historics have become prized for their Top Grade woods, craftsmanship and sharp attention to detail to match the original Standards. They were made in much more limited quantities than regular R8s.
Very warm low end and sparkling highs that bite. No breaks, cracks, or repairs.
Includes original Lifton style Hard case, COA, and paperwork in pics. Just a few light finish indentations and typical Dye Bleed that will go away with time. Google it if you dont trust me. The True Historic series were mostly made in 2015, and few stragglers produced in 2016.The current 2017 and 2018 Historic Reissue LPs are the same axe sans the double carve top (no hand sanding & finishing on the top after the CNC does most of the work). The first 200 had the best quality wood (this is serial 56). True historic has a better rolled fingerboard binding, double carved necks that seem to fit better, and thin-nitro that was hand-sanded making the guitars more open than historic models. Neck size more like a 59! A lot can sound brittle and piercing. Installed the closest to vintage spec PAFs I could findMontys PAF Humbuckers (7.7 bridge/7.2 neck)from England. Google it up and see what Guitar magazine saysthe best! ALSO installed bareknuckle caps and pots to replace the cheaper stock ones. Hey bro, why did you make these changes? Because I wanted as close to an affordable LP to an original 58 that I could find. And the Guitar Magazine article online for making your Gibson LP sound like an original told me how.. Aint nobody for time for that.
