Today we're looking at a Gibson R8 1958 Les Paul Standard Chambered Reissue from 2008. The R8 is just a short form for '1958 Reissue' and these guitars are based closely on the 1958 specs.

However, this 2008 example has a weight-relieved, or chambered, body. This takes the weight down to 7.7 pounds. The neck has the typically chunkier 1958 profile; the nut width is 1 11/16ths inches and has the standard 24 3.4 inch scale length. The top is moderately flamed, bookmatched maple with an 'iced tea' sunburst; the rest of the body and neck get the traditional cherry-stained lacquer.

This guitar is in very good condition. The original hardshell Gibson case is included.
