The Gibson VOS 59 Les Paul Standard is made to the Vintage Original Spec. A major change to the Les Paul Standard in 1959 was the addition of wider, fatter jumbo frets, which facilitated more dramatic bends. The real force of this change was not felt until the late 1960s, when rock and blues players like Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Peter Green began to discover the fat, warm voice of the ’59 Standard. This moment in history marked the beginning of the idealization of the ’59 Les Paul as the Holy Grail of guitars in the minds of professionals, collectors and weekend warriors. VOS stands for Vintage Original Spec. The finishing process on VOS models has been customised to reflect the way Gibson finished Les Paul guitars back in the 50s. They receive a thinner nitro-cellulose lacquer finish which is applied, sanded, and buffed by hand; in other words, more care is put into the finishing process. This extra care is intended to make VOS guitars look like gently aged and well-cared-for vintage guitars. It also helps the guitars breathe better and therefore to resonate and sustain more freely, making them much better instruments.
