    $4,897.09

    The 2015 CS8 '50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS from Gibson Custom represents the origin of the most desirable electric guitar in the history of rock, rendered with all the essential features and every ounce of the tone that made the originals famous. Crafted with the previous generation of Gibson Custom Historic Specifications for vintage-certified looks, tone and feel, this guitar uses select tonewoods, an accurate '58 neck profile, two outstanding Alnico III Custom Bucker pickups, and a range of six luscious lacquer VOS finishes to represent the beautifully faded states of original late-'50s Sunbursts, delivering the best of a priceless Les Paul in a guitar you can enjoy today.
