The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50’s parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson’s solid body range. While Gibson’s other solid body guitars enjoyed various levels of success, the infamous “Tuxedo” look of the Les Paul Custom has enjoyed a long reign as the epitome of high-style, tone and playability. Today’s True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom is a detailed recreation, true to every aspect of the original’s stylish looks, legendary tone and distinct “fretless wonder” playability.

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!

We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.

I live in the Middle East where there are no meaningful music stores, and certainly nothing like World Guitars. I also have GAS. I now own four guitars and an amplifier bought from World Guitars, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The responsiveness and customer-service is second to none, and they handle the shipping professionally – guitars come out the case intonated and in tune and ready to play! Spending money on premium guitars and amps from overseas takes trust – it is that simple, and World Guitars is my trusted supplier of high-end gear in the UK.
