    Gibson Historical Reissues Aren’t Accurately Represented, November 13, 2005
    Dick Joyce “Axe Me Anything” (Bayonne, New Jersey USA) –

    This review is from: Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar Faded Tobacco (Faded Tobacco)

    This is an excellent guitar by any standards. The slim tapered neck is fast and comfortable, the tonal quality can go from growling and snarling to soaring crystal clarity with the touch of a button. Build quality is superior to the “regular” Les Paul models. The reason for the low rating has nothing to do with the quality of the instrument, but how it is marketed and labeled. I am an avid Gibson player / collector. Unfortunately, I had to stop playing due to health restrictions. I’ve owned a lot of Gibson Custom Shop guitars. “Reissues” as well as “Custom” guitars. I have a 2000 Custom Shop Class 5 Les Paul. Aside from the eye-popping AAAA Sienna Burst top it was the first and only Custom Shop Les Paul that came with the Burstbucker pickups at the time. They are excellent pickups with a tonal quality somewhere between the 57 PAF Classic pickups and the 498/490 Alnico V’s which came in the Les Paul Standards and SG’s. Gibson has since taken to putting Burstbuckers in the LP Standards, rather than the 498/490′s. A simple matter of taste. However, why is Gibson putting Burstbuckers in their Historical Reissues when they came with 57 PAF’s originally? For the price, I think a “Custom Shop Historical Reissued 1960 Les Paul Standard” should be equipped with the same 1957 “Patent Applied For” pickups as they were originally equipped. Especially for the price. Plus, I truly love the Classic 57′s and 57′s +.
