Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 3 Humbucking Pickups - Ebony


This Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS is oozing with classic tone and vintage-original-spec authenticity — everything, that is, except its genuine Bigsby-equipped ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge, able to add haunting vibrato effects to the '57's legendary bite and sustain. Its eye-grabbing VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish captures the depth, and richness of a genuine '57 Custom — one of the most iconic solidbody electric guitars ever made. Handcrafted by Gibson's elite Custom Shop luthiers, the 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS features top-shelf tonewoods, including a 1-piece mahogany body and a fast, comfortable Chunky C profile mahogany neck topped by a silky smooth ebony fingerboard with 22 Historic medium jumbo frets, Plek'd to perfection. Plug this beast into your favorite tube amp, and experience searing PAF tones, courtesy of three powerful CustomBucker Alnico III unpotted pickups. Premium appointments, including gold hardware, mother-of-pearl '50s Pattern inlays, and Kluson Waffleback tuners complete the amazing 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS Bigsby.

Every inch of this Les Paul has vintage vibe

To capture the essence of the original 1957 Les Paul Custom, Gibson painstakingly re-created each part piece by piece. The mahogany body, nitro finish, and solid ebony fingerboard are only the beginning. Not only do you get the Chunky C profile neck you've been craving, but the accuracy of the details go all the way down to the positioning of the instrument's vintage-style Kluson Waffleback tuners and the size and shape of its mother-of-pearl '50s Pattern inlays.


CustomBucker pickups deliver pure vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to this guitar's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Every part of its internal signal path was designed to deliver dead-on 1957 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS sports a trio of Gibson's CustomBucker humbuckers. The CustomBucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. Take it from guitar experts: The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS nails the look, sound, and feel of an original 1957 Les Paul Custom.


Chunky C neck and Plek'd frets for optimized playability

Comfort and playability were two of Gibson's primary concerns when they were designing the 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS. You'll be delighted at how this guitar's Chunky C profile neck comfortably fills your hand in just the right way. For your playing pleasure, the bound ebony fingerboard is buffed to silky smoothness and the frets are dressed to perfection using a Plek Pro machine for optimized playability. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own.


Vintage Original Sheen finish, for the look and feel of a classic

Gibson Custom's Vintage Original Sheen finish option comes standard on Custom Shop Historic Reissue models. The VOS finish package includes lightly aged parts that imparts an authentic vintage patina. The nitrocellulose finished it buffed to a light matte appearance, giving a look and feel of a guitar that has been lovingly played and cared for over the years.


Bigsby tremolo adds a cool vibe

Bigsby tremolos deliver smooth dips and dives that other trems just can't reproduce. Perfect for adding a slight tremolo to chords and scooping into notes, the Bigsby is a creative tool you'll love using. Find out what you have been missing from your standard Les Paul, with the Bigsby-loaded Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue VOS.
