A really special guitar. This guitar was owned by a Pro Player here in Des Moines and it was his baby! All original but for the replaced Seymour Duncan Antiquity Pickups, this guitar is awesome and waiting for its new owner! It’s a 2011 Gibson VOS Les Paul 1958 Reissue with the original Hard Shell Case and all the Case Candy. This is one fine guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop!
The guitar was set up so perfectly, I didn’t even want to change the strings. All we did was clean it up a liitle. The guitar has the VOS treatment from the Gibson Custom Shop and some player wear that only enhances the 1958 look of the guitar. It plays effortlessly and the Duncan Antiquity Pickups are amazing. I was playing it thru my Friedman Pink Taco and ….oh my…what a guitar!
So what does VOS mean? VOS stands for "Vintage Original Spec" and is a 'treatment' given guitars to give them a more patina look. The hardware is aged but the guitars are not, only the nitro isn't polished in the last stages to a high gloss, and a thin coat of 'VOS sauce' is applied to the nitro to give it that dullish look. It can actually be removed by polishing or cleaning thorougly. Think of VOS as just gloss minus the final buffing and some aged hardware. The finish on this guitar is quite shiny from the player use. It looks awesome!
The guitar is not weight reliefed. It weighs in at 9 lbs 2 ozs…Not the heaviest Les Paul I have ever found. The original frets are still in great shape. Check those pics!

Now this guitar is uber cool but used and vintage so it is sold as-is no returns...however...I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 120 years now and my customers love the guitars I found them. This cool Gibson will certainly not be an exception.
