                 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Standard VOS

This is it folks! The Holy Grail of electric guitars! The Gibson Custom Shop has really hit one out of the park with this stunning reissue, coming in at 4.109kg.

Stunning flame maple top, that is mesmerising! 

This guitar sounds great unplugged and it really steals the show when it is plugged into a valve amplifier and cranked! 

There is good reason why Gibson Les Paul Standard’s are one, if the the most, desirable electric guitars on the planet. 

With originals becoming increasingly rare and expensive, do yourself a favour and grab the next best thing! 


Featuring Gibson Custom’s 20th Anniversary Specifications, newly adopted for 2013. These include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson™ Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye. 

Gibson Custom’s new Custom Bucker accurately recreates the original PAFs of the late ’50s, using Alnico III magnets and unequal turns of 42 AWG wire in each coil for that characteristic PAF “bite.” These pickups clean up beautifully at the guitar’s volume controls, while Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing “woman tone” when you roll back the tone controls.

To top it all off, the 1959 Les Paul Standard Reissue plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson’s state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor. 


     Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Tele Custom with Bigsby

This has got to be one of the best looking and coolest Tele’s I’ve ever seen!! 

Super cool Surf Green, with lightly aged closet classic finish and with aged white binding really catches the eye. Everyone loves a Tele Custom! 

Flip the guitar over and you have a stunningly beautiful AA grade birds eye maple neck. 

Classic Tele tone with the addition of the ultra hip Bigsby - you don’t see to many of those on a Fender! 

Fender had one of these in every custom colour at the 2012 NAMM show, this is one of the few that made it to Australia! 

The guitar is an absolute joy to play, and like all Fender Custom Shop guitars this one has that extra mojo that players rave about.

Some lucky punter is going to love playing this and when they are not - they will have just as much fun staring at it!
