The Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar began production in 1958 at a time in American culture when custom color choices from major manufacturers in the auto industry were becoming very fashionable.

This Oxford Gray color shows one of those car colors, never before seen on a Gibson Custom instrument, resulting in a bold and beautiful vision from Gibson.

Our vintage-inspired colors

Nitorlack colors are based on the original colors.Fender and Gibson. The creation of these colors is preceded by a great work and exhaustive study by our laboratory and technical department. Thanks to this, we have managed to faithfully recreate the tones of the Fender and Gibson guitars of the 50s and 60s.

During those years up to the present day, it is worth noting that the colors of guitars vintage have varied a lot over the years due to the aging of the nitrocellulose lacquer and modifications to the brand’s own colors.

Therefore, two guitars finished in 1960 with fender colors may be totally different from each other or from a more current guitar.

Application guide:

  • We begin to apply the color once the guitar has been primed with Nitorlack Primer.
  • When we start the painting work, the pores must be closed and the grain must not be marked
  • We apply the product either by spray or spray gun at a distance of about 25 cm.
  • When applying we must follow a pattern of application, first horizontally and then vertically, uniformly applying the paint.
  • Apply several coats, letting dry between them for a few minutes 24 horas and sanding in between to remove any remaining impurities
  • This work will be finished when the surface is completely smooth and free of imperfections.
