Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Historic 1958 Reissue (R8) Lemon Burst Flametop 2011
Up for grabs is this superb Gibson Custom Shop 1958 (R8) Reissue from 2011. This R8 thinks it’s an R9 with an absolutely stunning Lemon Burst top with some brilliant flame and grain aplenty. We get in quite a few R8's, most are Sunburst plain tops but this is a different beast altogether and is up there with the very best R9 tops we have ever had. For those who have always wanted a stunning Lemon Burst R9 just with a thicker neck, this is the one for you… Complete with all case candy and certificate of authenticity booklet. No issues at all, no breaks or repairs. Weight is very light at 4kg. Lovely thick ’58 neck. Complete with original historic pink velvet crush Gibson Custom hardshell case. It’s had the VOS treatment from Gibson custom shop so some light ageing all over. It’s a superb playing Les Paul and has been played and not locked away, so along with the VOS treatment it also has some natural playwear, which is no bad thing at all. There is a little bucklewear on the back, the tuners have been replaced with Grovers and it’s had a very good professional full fret replacement. Otherwise just the occasional mark. One of the best looking (and playing!) Lemon Burst R8s you will see. If you don't know about these have a read up. The pictures speak for themselves. Pretty much the perfect '58 reissue.

We carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special. All pictures are of actual guitar, we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
