Gibson Custom Shop '57 VOS Les Paul Custom Ebony, 2011 This guitar had only one owner and was well cared for, and rarely used. Just a few light scratches in the Ebony finish (very light scratches. Black/Ebony shows everything), and it’s hard to tell if it’s part of the VOS finish, or honest play wear. It has a nice fat playable neck, like an R7 standard RI. Bigger than the original vintage necks for sure, and a must for a fan of the baseball bat neck. Great for sustain and that fat Les Paul tone. The (real)Ebony fingerboard is clean and straight. A great player. The VOS treatment has been applied at the factory, and simulates slight aging. A somewhat dulled finish, and yellowed binding gives an un-played, but authentically old look. The ’57 reissue also sports a mahogany top under the Ebony just like the old days. The guitar comes with its original case, and offered at a fraction of the new price.
You know you want a black Les Paul to go with your sunburst, don’t ya?
