Gibson “VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Finish
“Our acclaimed VOS finish is also uses genuine nitrocellulose lacquer, and it starts with several thin hand-sprayed layers to build up a hard, breathable “coat”. Rather than complete the effort with the same buffing as our High Gloss finish, however, Gibson Custom uses a unique proprietary process to give the VOS a glowing, gently-aged patina that you’d swear you can almost feel as well as see. The result is a guitar that looks and feels like an instrument from the golden era—one that has been lovingly cared for, while naturally exposed to the gentle mellowing that time brings, without actually being distressed or physically hand-aged. This is the finish that was used for many years on Gibson Custom’s Reissue models, and which now comes as a popular option our Standard Historic guitars, and some others.”
