You are looking at a Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue VOS Electric Guitar Faded Tobacco, serial number 83043. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 15.7 oz.)Although the Les Paul had already started to evolve with modifications including the Tune-O-Matic bridge in '56 and the humbucking pickups a year later, the 1958 Les Paul marked a turning point for the Les Paul with the introduction of the first sunburst finish. President of Gibson, Ted McCarty, was convinced that the declining sales and diminishing popularity of the Les Paul were a result of the flashy Gold Top finish, and sought to revamp its appeal with an elegant, more traditional Cherry Sunburst finish. Because the grains of maple were now visible through the finish, Gibson started to use “bookmatched” two-piece tops glued together with a center seam, giving each and every single one a unique and distinctive character. Gibson Custom Shop has faithfully replicated the classic 1958 Les Paul Standard with all the key ingredients, including lightly figured top for a more authentic look. Although the original '58s were only available in Cherry Sunburst, each of the “burst” finishes offered on the 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissues represents varying degrees to which the original Cherry Sunburst finish had faded, including a Bourbon Burst, Faded Tobacco Burst, Iced Tea Burst, Lemon Burst, Sunrise Tea Burst and Washed Cherry sunburst.
