For your consideration is a very unique Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Reissue VOS.  This Black Beauty was built in January of 2019 and in December 2019 received the Standard Makeover from Historic Makeovers in Lake Mary, Florida(at a cost of $ 2500).  The Makeover consists of: contouring the top to vintage specs, carving the neck to the correct vintage “C” shape with the fingerboard binding edge rolled, refinishing using aniline dyes and unplasticized nitro-cellulose lacquer in a vintage correct finish, a vintage patina (weather-checking and aging), & re-stamping the serial number in a correct 50’s typeface.  Also of note is that there was mild headstock damage in transit to Historic Makeovers that was repaired by them.  Since they also refinished the guitar the repair is unnoticeable. The pickups have been changed to Righteous Sound Pickups with their RAF in the bridge and middle, and their Brielle in the neck.  This guitar was most recently owned by Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem.  Comes with original case, a COA from Gibson and Historic Makeovers, along with hang tags and Custom Shop 3 way switch cover badge.  Serial number has been covered in pictures only.
