Woow excellent article! Thank you!
great thread, will share this
The making of a miniature replica...
One point... in talking about painting, Mike McGuire is referenced, but more likely Mickey McGuire who is the head painter. Lot of great people there.
Looks like this lefty '12 1957 GT reissue has its dots on the right side. I'll ask my vintage guys if Gibby did this in the '50s. It would make sense that it would happen once in a while, my '63 SG Special is out of phase in the mid position. So was another '63 special that I used to own as well.

Gibson Custom Factory Tour 2016
Took the "s" out of the "https" so that its easier to watch.
Here's a cool little video on the Custom Shop as well. I bet it smells fantastic at that place.
Great thread. Does anyone know if any film of the factory in the 50's exists? I know there a great tape at Fender in 1957 but I've never seen anything like that from Gibson yet.
I think there is one somewhere on youtube.
I'm brand spankin' new to this forum and I just wanted to thank the OP for posting these photos and the story behind them.
I just bought my first Gibson.
It's a Les Paul R8 VOS.
I literally just got it in my hands today.
It's every bit as good as you might imagine after seeing the pictures and reading the story.
I totally love this guitar.
Been playing guitar since the early 80's and never once owned a Gibson...anything, let alone a Les Paul.
Everything else, yeah sure. But never anything made by Gibson.
Let me tell you....I've been missing out.
Totally love this guitar and I'd like to add that I don't regret it one bit that I went with the custom shop.
This opinion comes after having played a lot of new Traditionals during the last three months.
I encourage anyone who can afford it or somehow justify the cost to add the other 2k and get the custom shop.
I got the R8 because I like a beefy neck, and all the reviews said the 58 is a little deeper than the 59.
Don't know anything about it since I never had a chance to play an R9 but for me it's a dream to play the R8.
The neck - for me - is exactly perfect!
Thanks again to the OP for posting this.
