Gibson Les Paul Vintage Old Spec
Jack van Breen from Guitar Showcase in San Jose, California has an interesting segment on Gibson Custom Shop Vintage Old Spec Guitars. While Gibson has ’58 and ’59 Les Pauls, attempts to duplicate the guitars, while nice, did not have that vintage sound. And why — turns out in the 50’s, quality wasn’t rock solid and the guitars would vary, the pickups vary, etc Once, Gibson mixed in a little variation in the bodies, pickups, etc, they recaptured the vintage sound. Any TG folks in Nashville TN — if so, why don’t you take your video camera down to the custom shop and do a segment.
