Gibson Custom Shop R8 – 1958 Reissue Les Paul 1996 Lemon Honey Burst with Original Hard Shell Case

Just in at Diablo Guitars is this stunning Les Paul R8 in a warm luscious ‘Lemon Honey Burst’

The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous ’59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character. 

This beautiful R8 comes to us in remarkable condition given it’s age. There are barley even any signs of potential player wear other than very light surface scratches and light belt buckle marks. It’s been freshly set up with D’Addario .10-46 strings, low fast action and a straight neck. It ships in it’s original custom shop case with hang tags.
