A stunning 1958 Reissue from Gibson’s renowned and increasingly collectible ‘Goodwood’ period. Finished in Butterscotch, this rare Custom Shop example features a sublime Flame Top; certainly the best we’ve seen on this model.
Gibson’s 1997 production predominantly allocated highly flamed maple to their R9 production. As a consequence few R8’s were produced as beautiful as this example. Subsequently this superb example benefits from Gibson’s legendary 58’ neck profile with the all beauty of a highly figured '59 Reissue.
Les Paul Reissues from this period are now accredited as being some of Gibson’s most desirable and coveted guitars. The combination of incredible looks, playability, and sound, justify why they’ve become the focus of so many Les Paul players and collectors.
