Here’s an awesome Custom Shop Les Paul 1960 reissue aged in house by us. Not over the top. Not cheesy. Not belt sanded like the other “relic” jobs you see out there, this one has a great vibe with subtle touches that really set it apart. We started with a great guitar. This is the full monty 1960 R0 reissue and not the cheaper G0 reissues you could get at the local super stores. It also has the new 20th anniversary specs including hot hide glue construction and analine dye. The non weight relived body is one piece mahogany for incredible sustain. The slightly flamed maple top features the authentic 50’s contour. The one piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with correct shape trapezoid fingerboard inlays. Thinner but not mega thin 60s neck. Nice figure and color on the board and inlays. Alnico 3 CustomBucker humbucking pickups deliver killer PAF tone. Long neck tenon. Stopbar Tailpiece, ABR-1 Tuneomatic bridge and Kluson tuners keep it rock solid. The nitro lacquer dark burst finish looks awesome. We have done a light to medium aging on the finish. The top was resprayed in nitro lacquer. The plastic and chrome hardware have been aged as well. Nothing too wild. It looks like a nearly 60 year old guitar that has been used but cherished over the years.
This is a great guitar if you want a smaller neck with burst appointments. The 1960 profile neck is fast and comfy. The tone is superlative as well. The CustomBucker pickups sound amazing. This one weighs 8.5 lbs according to my scale. Cosmetically, this one has been aged and had the top resprayed. It has been made to look like and older guitar. The frets are in good shape and the electronics work as they should. Comes in original case with certificate.
I’ve had an incredible time with this guitar. It really has that classic sound. No other guitar has this tone and feel. An incredible instrument that many folks dream of owning their entire lifetime. Stop dreaming! A new one will cost you big bucks. In fact the price probably just went up while you were reading this. This one has big time vibe and is ready to rock.
