    VOS - (Vintage Original Spec) - confusing because it specifically refers to the duller finishes (VOS finish) and patina on hardware on most Historics. Gibson calls these guitars the VOS series - even though they DO make a high gloss version with shiny hardware, which we usually call a "Gloss."

    Yes - POS = Piece Of Shit.

    You're probably asking because of the "Bought a POS" thread. The thread was about a Norlin era Les Paul - and the ever brilliant Corey recently announced that Norlin era Gibsons "suck" - he was talking out of his ass - that thread was poking fun of HIM (because Norlins ROCK).

    top wrap- feeding the strings through the front of tailpiece, bending them back over the top. In theory it makes them feel slinkier, easier to bend.
