Just picked up new 58 VOS today


Recommended Posts



I just picked up my new 58 VOS today Ice Tea and I am blown away at the beauty and the tone of this monster!

I was alittle intimidated by the neck but after 10 min I loved it feels great becasue the action and playablity was awesome.I was a skeptic wondering if there was a difference between the standard and vos version. I and I will say there is a difference.


It is keeper!

Greetings and thanks to all



I got it from Long and McQuade. I had an opportunity to pick up a previously owned Faded Tobacco with the tags still on it. But I delayed my decison by 15 Min and it was sold. I was dissappointed. But a contact brought this in and I had a chance to pick-up a 60's VOS in Cherry instead of this 58. I liked the 60's unit it was a good player although the top was nothing special. I have a better top on my standard although there was no comparison in tone and again playablity on the 60's vos. The 58 just spoke to me after plugging it in. The bigger neck is great ! Infact it is a nice change. I find it easier to play. But I will say it ooozzzes quality.


Besides fantastic tone it is one great looking piece of wood.
