6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Les Paul Reissue VOS Guitar, Bourbon

Details
The Gibson 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue marks the year that Gibson began guitarists' love affair with figured tops and burst finishes. This "plain top" reissue is an accurate representation of the first time the legendary Les Paul was given its Burst finish, beautifully showing off a carved, Maple top. The VOS Bourbon Burst finish depicts the vintage, faded look of the traditionally Cherry Sunburst original. This stunning guitar has all the ingredients that made the Les Paul a classic, in a celebration of the year we finally got to see what was going on beneath the finish!

Birth of the Burst

By 1958 the Les Paul had already evolved through several modifications including the arrival of the Tune-o-matic bridge and humbucking pickups. Despite this sales started to slow a little and president, Ted McCarty decided that the model's flashy Goldtop finish could be to blame. The elegant and traditional sunburst finish was introduced and has been a favourite ever since.

This new finish displayed the grain of the guitar's carved Maple top so Gibson now used bookmatched two-piece tops glued together with a center seam, giving each guitar its very own distinct look and marking the beginning of the guitar world's fascination with figured maple tops. The majority of the tops used in 1958 were considered "plain" when compared to the tops used just one year later and beyond. The 1958 Reissue features a less showy Maple top that is sometimes considered more authentic looking than those with highly detailed figuring.

Classic Les Paul Features

The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue had all the ingredients that made Les Paul a classic in the first place. The body is solid, non-weight relieved Mahogany which blends depth and richness with the snap and clarity of a Maple top. The quarter-sawn Mahogany neck has a chunky, rounded 50s profile and a traditional long-tenon neck joint which enhance sustain and resonance as well as feeling great in the hand.

This Les Paul also benefits from Gibson Custom's 20th Anniversary specs. These include a one-piece Rosewood fingerboard, Kluson™ Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color, new Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye beneath its nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

True Vintage Tone

The new Custom Bucker on this guitar is an accurate representation of the original PAFs around in the late 50s using Alnico III magnets and unequal turns of 42 AWG wire in each coil for that characteristic bite. These pickups clean up beautifully at the guitar's volume controls, while Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing tone when you roll back the tone controls. This Les Paul plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson's state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor.
