Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we love our massive range of pre-owned Gibsons and my current favorite is this Reissue 1958 Les Paul - it is a great guitar in its own right but the owner has replaced the pickups with a Monty GT500 pickup in the bridge (truly amazing pickup) and Custom Bucker in the neck and they sound incredible; it has brought the guitar to life. This guitar has had the Peter Green mod done to the pickups for that in-between sound. PLEASE NOTE: The owner is willing to swap out the current pickups for the originals if you so wish.

Condition: This guitar is 10 years old and has general play wear (scratches) around the tone knobs and on the back. It has one ding near the bottom of the body which has made a small indent into the body but doesn't necessarily affect the finish and is hard to photograph and some marks on the top side of the neck at the headstock where it has hung from an un-friendly hanger - see the photographs as they form part of the description. We can supply more detailed photographs on request.

The 1958 Les Paul Standard was the first year of the now famous Sunburst finish. While there was only one "Burst" on the price list, Cherry Sunburst, time and light have since created as many different finishes as originals, as aniline dye and nitro cellulose are light sensitive, causing them to fade.

Just like an original 1958 Les Paul, the neck profile on the True Historic '58 is just a bit beefier on average when compared to a 1959. Rendered in the fine detail inherent to all Reissue Models.

Original Hard Case and Gibson Certificate

This is a commission sale therefore we cannot accept part exchanges.

From Gibson:

The Standard Historic 1958 Standard Les Paul from Gibson Custom delivers the tone, looks and feel of the original ’58, the first of the Gibson’s now infamous Sunburst models. It features hand-crafted beauty, authentic vintage Gibson tone and historic appointments plus historically accurate aniline dye, hide glue neck construction and the renown sound transference that comes with its long neck tenon. The most important details that made the original a legend are artfully revived for a convincing vintage playing experience.
