Gibson R8 Les Paul Standard Reissue Sunburst, 2014

Gibson R8 Les Paul Standard Reissue Sunburst, 2014

The Gibson R8 Les Paul Standard Reissue is as close as many of us can now get to the iconic late 1950’s sunburst Les Paul. Built following the original patterns, the Gibson R8 pairs a book-matched flame-Maple top on a tropical Mahogany back, with Mahogany neck and Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

Gibson Les Paul Classic 60s Reissue Ebony, 2002

Gibson Les Paul Classic 60s Reissue Ebony, 2002

The Gibson Les Paul Classic 60s Reissue appeared during 1990 as a reissue of the 1960 Les Paul model, with its key feature being a slim neck profile. This model has been produced in three stretches – from 1990 to 1998, from 2000 to 2008, and since 2014. The headstock decal originally read ‘Les Paul Model’ as the originals did, and this was changed to ‘Les Paul Classic’ in 1993. The pickguard is also engraved with ‘1960’.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Standard Amber Burst, 2005

Originally produced for only the years 1958 to 1960, the Gibson Les Paul Standard overcame its lack of commercial success and became one of the influential guitars ever. The Les Paul Standard appeared in 1958 as a ‘new’ version of the Les Paul model and carried Gibson’s new hum-bucking pickups designed by Seth Lover, and was adorned with a sunburst finish showing off what was normally a nicely figured Maple cap.

*NO LONGER AVAILABLE* Gibson Les Paul Recording Model Natural, 1972

Built from 1971 to 1979, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model sported the features most desired by Les Paul himself, but unfortunately this did not translate into sales success. Still, even this low selling model was copied by Japanese builders during the ‘Lawsuit Era’. Constructed during the Norlin years with strong references to the original Les Paul Custom models, the Gibson Les Paul Recording model featured a Mahogany body with carved Mahogany top – unlike the Gold Top and Standard models, which had Maple caps on a Mahogany slab. At this point, Gibson was using what’s come to be called ‘Pancake’ bodies, with at least two narrower layers of Mahogany.
