A meticulously crafted electric guitar steeped in the golden age of rock and roll.

The Gibson Custom 57 Les Paul Custom 2 Pickup VOS Left Hand electric guitar authentically recreates a historic instrument in an exclusive left-handed model. Its VOS nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives it a gently aged appearance, while the dark ebony fingerboard provides clarity and sustain. The single-piece solid mahogany body produces a warmth and midrange that complements the instrument's articulate tone. For the first time, True Historic plastics and parts have been re-engineered from vintage examples to provide unmatched authenticity. The '57 Classic pickups deliver a range of vintage-inspired tones from clean to overdriven. A rounded neck profile offers comfortable playability. Left-handed guitarists can now experience a reissue of Gibson's iconic 1957 Les Paul Custom, renowned for its peerless tone and styling, in a model made exclusively for them.

Iconic Body and Finish

The Gibson Custom 57 Les Paul Custom 2 Pickup VOS Left Hand has an iconic single-cutaway mahogany body with a maple top and aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish that recreates the patina of a vintage instrument. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows the wood to resonate freely, producing a rich, warm tone. The aged finish gives this guitar a distinguished vintage look straight out of the 1950s.

Smooth and Comfortable Neck

The mahogany neck has a rounded profile that fits comfortably in your hand. It is topped with an ebony fingerboard for a smooth playing surface. The neck also has an aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish that provides a natural feel. 22 medium jumbo frets provide ample space for expressive soloing and chording.

Custombucker Pickups

The Custombucker pickups provide articulate tones from clean to overdriven. The neck pickup delivers a warm, round tone perfect for jazz and blues. The bridge pickup has an edgy, biting quality suited to rock and roll. Adjust the volume and tone controls to blend the pickups and shape your tone.
