Gibson '58 Les Paul Standard True Historic Lemon Drop Pre Owned
This stunning True Historic Gibson 58 Les Paul Standard has just come in to us and is a really exceptional instrument. In near mint condition, only having one ding on the back, it has been very well looked after. It comes with all the case candy in the Gibson case and plays/sounds as good as it looks. What a cracker

The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. The True Historic 1958 Les Paul Standard was the first year of the now famous Sunburst finish. While there was only one "Burst" on the price list, Cherry Sunburst, time and light have since created as many different finishes as originals, as aniline dye and nitro cellulose are light sensitive, causing them to fade. Just like an original 1958 Les Paul, the neck profile on the True Historic '58 is just a bit beefier on average when compared to a 1959. Rendered in the fine detail inherent to all True Historic Models, this is our most thoroughly convincing replica of the 'Burst that started it all.
True Historic Plastics Based on lab analysis of original Gibson plastics from the 1950s, the plastics on the True Historics—including the Toggle Washer, Cream Jackplate, Cream Pickguard, Pickup Mounting Rings and Toggle Switch Cap—have been reformulated and re-engineered to the original specifications of their vintage counterparts.
True Historic Pickup Covers Engineered and manufactured to capture every nuance and angle of original vintage pickup covers.
Double-Carved Top To capture the original top carve profile of original vintage Les Pauls, all True Historic Les Pauls are double carved by CNC, with the final shape of their dish arch perfected in a hand-sanding process.
Double-Carved Neck The necks on all True Historic Les Pauls are double carved and then hand-sanded to capture that legendary vintage Gibson neck profile: the "beefy", solid feel of a beautifully crafted Les Paul that rests in the player's hand like no other guitar.
"Broken" Peghead Edges Hand-sanded peghead, neck, and body edges beautifully capture the look and feel of a true Les Paul. Thinner Peghead Veneer While you can't see it on a finished Les Paul, all Gibsons from the '50s had a thinner peghead veneer. From 2015, all True Historic guitars feature this detail in their mission to be as close to the originals as possible.
Thinner True Historic Wet-Sanded Finish All True Historic guitars from Gibson are sprayed with thinner nitrocellulose finishes, as were original '50s guitars, and are now hand wet-sanded for beauty and authenticity.
Hide Glue Top Construction Along with all hide glue neck construction, Gibson Custom extends the use of hot hide glue to join the back and top of every True Historic guitar, just as it was done in the 1950s.
Rolled Fingerboard Binding One of the most magical aspects of an original '50s Les Paul is its smooth, natural playing feel. We hand-file the fingerboard binding on every True Historic Les Paul to capture that feel precisely.
