Gibson Custom Shop 1956 Les Paul VOS Ebony

Item: GBHB507C

The 1956 Les Paul from the Gibson Custom Shop is presented with all the historically accurate appointments and legendary tone of the original. No detail is overlooked, starting with the Les Paul’s traditional hand-carved maple top and solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body. The headstock is made from Holly head veneer, as opposed to fiber, just like it was in 1956, and the vintage-style tulip tuners are mounted in a straight line, also as they were on the original. The 24 ¾-inch scale length neck is made from one solid piece of mahogany, and attached to the body using a long neck tenon—one of the Les Paul’s more distinguishing characteristics of the 1950s. The neck is topped by a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard outfitted with acrylic trapezoid inlays matching the size of color of the originals.

We were very fortunate to get this 1956 Les Paul in Ebony from a very short 2012 run. Definitely has the vibe and sound of that classic '50's Les Paul.
