2006 Gibson Les Paul VOS 59 re-issue 1959 Guitar For Sale
The neck is nice and fat like the real 59's were. It's just shy of 1" at the first fret. I have upgraded a few things over the years - the most important upgrade was replacing the factory pots, switch, wiring, and tone caps with a really nice RS Guitarworks kit. Those caps Gibson puts in these guitars are just plain wrong - this kit really opened up the guitar tone - stock these sound choked and kind of nasaly. This upgrade made a huge difference - you can actually use the volume and tone controls the way they are supposed to be used. It's wired like the old ones from the 50's - the tone caps from RS are great and i have been very happy with them. I also changed the tailpiece to one of the locking ones from tonepros - nice upgrade. original one will be included. Strap locks installed - i don't own a guitar without them. I will include the pieces to put on your strap and the old stock strap buttons. This guitar is nice and resonant - it's a bit on the heavy side of les pauls which i have found that the heavier ones have a bigger voice with more authority - that's the best way to describe how this guitar sounds and feels. It's very commanding. I get lots of comments about this guitar - both about the sound and appearance whenever i play it. It's got some honest play wear - there are a couple of noticeable dings - one close to the input jack - it's dented in but the paint isn't chipped. The dent is about the size of the tip of a 1/4" guitar plug.
