Product ID: P-1163
The ’58 may be considered plain in comparison to the following year’s Les Paul, but it has it’s own distinct elegant look and a very desirable, unique spec which distinguishes this era from the ’59. Featuring a solid mahogany body with carved 2-piece maple top with period-correct Aniline dye and Custom Shop VOS treated finish for an exquisite aged patina, Custom Buckers with Alnico III magnets and period-correct wiring provide a second to none recreation of the seminal PAF humbucker of the 50’s. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck has the fatter, rounded 50’s profile with long-tenon neck joint for optimum sustain and superb natural resonance. Other premium features include Bumble Bee tone caps, one-piece rosewood fingerboard, hot-hide glue neck-fit, Kluson Deluxe tuners and period-accurate colour binding.
