Hot hide glue is used on the neck to body mortise joint. 24.75 inch scale length, 1.687 inch nut width, 12 inch fingerboard radius.FretsOriginal frets with no wearBodyClassic Les Paul body design and construction, and with a very nicely blistered or burled center-seam maple top. Mahogany back, assembled with Franklin Titebond glue.FinishWashed Cherry VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish, in good condition. Personally, this is one of my favourite finishes. The light shading at the edges really and adds colour and depth, but doesn’t interfere with the look of – or being able to see! – the maple top’s figure.Hardware/electronicsAll original nickel-plated hardware. Kluson-style Gibson Deluxe tuners with plastic Keystone buttons, ABR bridge and stop tailpiece, Gibson Custom Bucker pickups with nickel plated covers, gold Top Hat knobs with dial pointers. Standard Gibson wiring – pickup selector, individual volume and tone controls with Bumblebee capacitors.Playability/ActionThe Gibson 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue plays very extremely well – these instruments all pass through a Plek machine for fret levelling and setup. We will of course tune the setup as the player requires.CaseOriginal hardshell case and all the case candy included.
