We just received the Gibson Collector’s Choice #28 from the Custom Shop
The Collector’s Choice™ #28 1958 Les Paul “STP ’Burst” has been crafted after intensive hands-on analysis of the original guitar, with every curve, angle and specification precisely measured for exact reproduction. Tonewoods are carefully selected to match the look, weight, and sound of the original subject, and all guitars are hand aged to match every ding, dent and scratch found on this ’58 ’burst as it exists today, including a lusciously faded Cherry Sunburst finish and genuine aniline red filler for the back, neck and sides. Above and beyond the cosmetics, Gibson Custom goes to great lengths to recreate the unique tone of the “STP ’Burst”, using a pair of Custom Buckers built to the precise specs of the guitar’s unique PAFs. Mr. Weihe describes the tone as “intense in its mid-range and the most flexible guitar that I’ve had the pleasure to play.”
A perfectly captured full, rounded ’58 neck profile, traditional truss rod with no sleeve, nylon nut, aged nickel hardware, vintage-color binding, and rosewood fingerboard with aged celluloid trapezoid inlays complete the picture. Secure your Collector’s Choice™ #28 1958 Les Paul now and prepare to come as close as is humanly possible to owning the real thing.
