2019 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop R7 Electric Guitar Used
There's an iconic simplicity to the '57 Les Paul Standard, as it has the early look of the original Les Paul models but has the steeper neck angle, stop tailpiece, intonated saddle, plus the humbucking pickups and power of the LP Standards that would soon define the Gibson solid body electric.
This Custom Shop Historic model from a few years ago is an example of how seriously Gibson took their assignment to re-issue the '57 Goldtop. With all the proper parts, an accurate neck profile, and the right metallic gold and a thinner finish overall, this example is the next best thing to finding an original. Alnico III Custombuckers deliver the tone, the rest is up to the player. Note the COA and all the case goodies that came with it when new, and except for a few shirt button dings to the lacquer on the back this Custom Shop Les Paul could almost pass for "new old stock."
