    Post Your Historic Bourbon Bursts!

    It was suggested to post my 58 VOS Bourbon Burst in here. Just picked it up 11 days ago. Enjoy!

    It was oiled at the shop before it went home with me. Could be just lighter. Which I agree, it is on the lighter side but, I don’t spend much time focusing on the fretboard while I’m drooling over her beauty

    :hmm: All I know is the serial number starts off 89 and was told that would be for 58 and 9 for 19. I bought it new on August 3rd. Probably was built or started at the end of 2019. So I can’t really say for sure. On the warranty card it had 02/02/20 so that’s when it went through final...

    I am new to the custom shops. I wouldn’t imagine there being much difference from a 58 and a 59, other than the neck on the 59 being slightly thinner.

    Thanks, I cant believe it was listed as a Plain Top. Certain angles and lighting can make it look very flamey. I love it

    Picked up this beauty about ten days ago. Absolutely incredible. It’s a 2019 VOS 1958 Reissue Bourbon Burst Best guitar I have ever played. I absolutely love everything about it. Looks beautiful, plays beautifully, sounds beautiful. I’m completely blown away. It feels how a Les Paul should feel...

    I was thinking the same thing with the cap being 3 pieces. It could possibly be 3 levels of routing that was done? Hell Gibson did similar with the 3 layers of Mahogany for the backs, in the late 70s or early 80s I believe

    That is beautiful. Best review of it yet. Really making me wish I would have held out for it. I think you’re the only one who gave a neck measurement. There’s definitely a veneer on there though. If you look in the cavity, it touches the backwards N. It’s bright yellow, nearly white from the...

    Perhaps see if Sam Ash does any credit? You should be able to pay it off interest free within a couple months

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    I preorder from Sweetwater Feb 18th I believe it was. I was in my local shop that I’ve been going to for the past 17-18 years over the weekend. A Gibson 1958 Bourbon Burst caught my eye. I ended up picking it up yesterday and it came home with me. I promptly canceled my order from Sweetwater for...

    I guess we’ll see what the dates are on the guitars that we get. I agree with you, it’s not the guitar Lee had. Either way, I’m happy that we went with the Aged Dark Burst.

    :hmm: Good point. I really don’t know what the deal or story of that guitar that surfaced. Definitely strange that it was released into the wild and no one knows how it happened. Just adds to the mystique lol

    So Aljon said they changed the original prototype that had 2/3 and they will have 1/2. So that guitar that mysteriously surfaced in my opinion is probably a prototype.

    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Coming

    Nothing, wasn’t sure if that was what you referring to ask one of the ones “Gibson has no business calling a AA top”
