Les Paul '57 Custom 3pu

The Gibson Custom Shop has announced the launch of the Vintage Original Spec series of historic solid body guitars. From the 1957 Les Paul Junior to the 1960 Les Paul Standard, the Custom Shop has produced several reissue models representing what they say are the finest guitar recreations ever made.
Here’s the lowdown in Gibson’s own words…
“Using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and modern technology, the brilliant luthiers of the Custom Shop painstakingly reproduce the key elements that define a cool, vintage instrument-stunning looks, flawless playability, and unsurpassed tone.
The Vintage Original Spec series, or V.O.S., has a new, proprietary finishing process which yields the gently aged patina of a vintage classic. Also, a revolutionary handcrafting process produces the most comfortable, best-playing guitars made today. Solid mahogany back, historically accurate long neck tenon for superior strength and sustain, period correct neck profiles, hardware and electronics, and 100% nitro-cellulose lacquer are among some of the features offered in the Gibson Custom V.O.S. series.�
