Whats the deal with Gibson and Gibson custom?

I always thought that Gibson was strictly American made and epiphone was the import gibson models, but is this not the case?
Yes Epiphone is the import brand of Gibson, and Gibson is still American made. Gibson Custom is the premium line of Gibson, special models, historic re issues. So if you are looking for top of the line Gibson stuff, Gibson Custom is where it's at. However prepare to pay 3k and above, I mean they charge 2k for a historic spec Les Paul Junior, that's a lot of bread, a bit too much in my opinion.
MIM Fender Telecaster
SX GG1 Junior (Les Paul Special clone)
Dillion Canada DXC 58 (DC Les Paul Junior)
Fender Joe Strummer Telecaster
Squier CV Duo Sonic
Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special
Squier Jazz Bass
Vox DA 15
Fender FM 212R
sweet thanks, definitely not gonna buy a gibson for a while lol

oh one more thing, what does VOS mean for Gibson guitars
vintage original spec. basically a remake of the original design with as close to period materials as possible.
