Add to Cart

A very special run, this is the limited edition "Vic's Old School '59" - 1 of 25 commissioned by Vic DaPra of the Guitar Gallery in 2014.

This guitar sounds as great as it looks, one of the best historics ever made!

Custom Buckers, Bigsby holes (to simulate a removed Bigsby), Grovers, and extra aged with realistic wear and lacquer checking, shadows under the pickguard, poker chip/rhythm pickup ring, Grover tuners, and removed pickup covers.

This one has an excellent top and beautiful fretboard as you can see by the pictures!  

Finally it has all the 2014 appointments, and standard features of course, that make these one of the most accurate reissues ever:
  • hot hide glue neck set
  • 1 piece Rosewood Fretboard
  • real celluloid inlays
  • vintage accurate truss rod with no sleeve
  • Gibson Custom Bucker pickups (no covers in this case)
  • correct aniline dye in the cherry pore filler for the back color
  • new neck and body binding with a more accurate vintage color
  • 24 3/4" Scale Length
  • 12" Radius
  • 1-11/16" Nut Width
  • 22 Frets
  • Tune-o-Matic Bridge
  • Stopbar Tailpiece
  • Grover Tuners
  • Neck dimensions:  0.918" 1st - 1.018 12th
The performance of this guitar is everything you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, with top-shelf craftsmanship & killer tone.  What comes extra are the spec's from Vic DaPra, who just happens to know a little something about Les Pauls!

Comes with all the case candy, Certificate of Authenticity, and original pink lined, brown Custom Shop case
