Gibson Custom CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever
Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Mahogany neck with early ’50s profile for a period-correct feel
Updated vintage appointments are more authentic than ever

Gibson Custom’s guitars are brimming with spot-on authenticity and massive vintage vibe. If you want a guitar that has all the classic tone and vibe of an original, then you’ll truly appreciate the Gibson Custom CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS electric guitar. The neck and fretboard are attached using hide glue, which many argue sounds better than synthetic glue. Gibson Custom Shop also uses an original-spec truss rod, truss rod washer, and anchor. Kluson Green Key tuners feature proper vintage profile, color, and performance specifications. Take it from the guitar experts at Sweetwater – these features and others make the Gibson Custom CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS one of the most accurate reproductions ever.

Custom Bucker pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS’s electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and Bumblebee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on ’58 Les Paul tone. Of course, it’s next to impossible to find genuine ’50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Custom CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS sports a pair of Gibson’s Custom Bucker humbuckers. The Custom Bucker is the most historically accurate PAF copy ever. You just won’t find another Les Paul that comes as close to the original look, sound, and feel of a ’58 Les Paul!

Mahogany neck with early ’50s profile for a period-correct feel

When early Les Pauls are discussed (and they are at great length), a big issue is always the neck profile. The earliest Les Pauls had big, fat necks made of mahogany. The neck was slimmed down a bit in 1959, and it finally evolved into what’s known today as the SlimTaper neck in 1960. Some players love those huge old necks while others prefer the SlimTaper design. This CS8 ’50s Style Les Paul Standard VOS has a bound mahogany neck with long neck tenon and the original chunky ’50s rounded neck profile, which is historically accurate. Take it from the guitar experts at Sweetwater – the long neck tenon and larger neck profile deliver increased tone and sustain compared to other guitars. The rosewood fingerboard has acrylic trapezoid inlays that are both accurate in shape and color. Nickel-plated hardware and vintage tulip tuners complete the package.
