John Sykes Les Paul Custom VOS

Recommended Posts

Hello Admin,

 

Do you happen to know how many John Sykes Les Paul Custom VOS guitars were produced in the 2006 run?? I've been able to find the "aged" models, but I can't find the VOS model ANYWHERE!! And I guess if you know the number of the "aged" Sykes guitars produced that year, that would be helpful for comparison. If ANY readers of this post knows where I can get a VOS or wants to sell me their own, please let me know asap. Thanks!

Hmmm......No wonder it's so tough to find one. I've never seen one for sale on ebay or anywhere else besides Musiciansfriend.com when they first came out. People must be really satisfied!! Unfortunately, at that time I didn't have the $$ for it. Jeez, I had no idea Sykes was so popular!! ANY chance of Gibson producing another run? The demand is certainly there. I really appreciate your response.

I just wanted to add that it appears there were 100 VOS "Aged" John Sykes models built & 100 VOS Non-aged. I say this because I just bought "JS 173" which is a VOS Non-aged model. Seems logical, right?

we did 66 aged Sykes, and the just over 100 VOS.

So, is it safe to say that:

 

Serial #'s JS 1 - 66 = Aged

Serial #'s JS 67 - 200 = VOS?

 

Or did the VOS's start @ serial # JS 100?? It would seem odd to me if the numbers stopped at "just over" 200. Just curious, if you happen to know....
