This Gibson Les Paul Historic R8 VOS is *VERY Lightly Used*

Gibson Historic Program Manager Edwin Wilson says, “There are a lot of details and they all add up to this: the most accurate reproductions of the original ’50s Les Paul specifications that it’s possible to build today.” And as any guitarist who’s a stickler for tone and playability will tell you, the magic is in the details.

  • Vintage-style, vintage-profile fret wire
  • Historically accurate thin fingerboard binding that’s only .040-inch thick (which contributes greatly to the comfortable, vintage-feeling, “rolled” fingerboard edges)
  • Historically accurate carved arch on the guitars’ maple tops
  • Correct height of the binding in the cutaway
  • Accurately sized back control pocket route
  • Historically accurate 1/2-inch wire channel from toggle switch to control pocket
  • 5/8-inch heel with accurate heel shape
  • Correct distance between pickups
  • Historically accurate bridge, tailpiece, and control holes
  • Correctly tapered headstock with tuner holes in a straight line (rather than following the headstock edge)
  • 3/8-inch back-edge radius
