A rare signature edition of the famous 1959 Les Paul Standard.
To most guitar and blues aficionados, Michael Bloomfield was more than just a renowned, big-city blues guitarist. A session player who was weaned on Chicago's legendary south side blues, Bloomfield forever altered American-based blues with his bold and passionate guitar playing. The master craftsmen at Gibson Custom have introduced the much-anticipated Michael Bloomfield VOS 1959 Les Paul Standard, an accurate re-creation of the instrument Bloomfield used to create the legendary "Bloomfield Sound."
The Michael Bloomfield VOS 1959 Les Paul Standard faithfully captures that celebrated tone, along with every precious detail of the original. Starting with the Les Paul's traditional hand-carved maple top and solid, non-weight-relieved mahogany back, this instrument is pure Gibson, right down to such time-honored appointments like CTS potentiometers and bumblebee capacitors, holly headstock veneer, Grover kidney tuners, and a rounded neck profile similar to those on the original Les Pauls from 1959.
The Michael Bloomfield VOS Les Paul is fitted with a Gibson BurstBucker 1 pickup in the neck position and BurstBucker 2 pickup in the bridge position. BurstBuckers are among the most accurate vintage "PAF" reproductions that Gibson has ever conceived, right down to the irregular windings from coil to coil and their lack of potting, 2 ingredients that contribute to an authentic late-'50s and early '60s humbucker tone.
All VOS (Vintage Original Spec) series guitars use a proprietary process that includes unique steps for staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing; imparting the look of a well cared-for 40-year-old instrument. The result is a remarkable patina that will delight even the most discriminating enthusiast.
This special reissue is available in a limited release of only 200 guitars that will receive the popular VOS treatment. This signature model comes with a standard Gibson Custom case silkscreened with Bloomfield's signature and certificate of authenticity.
