From the year Seth Lover's amazing humbuckers first hit the Les Paul.
The BurstBucker pickups on this Gibson 1957 Chambered Les Paul Goldtop VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Guitar are precise copies of the original "Patent Applied For" versions that were the first dual-coil humbucking pickups ever produced in quantity. Their full, round, and versatile sound is as unique now as it was then. Classic carved maple top, chambered mahogany back, and one-piece mahogany neck generate the singing resonance that made the original one of the world's most sought-after electric guitars. Finish and hardware are gently aged to make it look exactly like the real McCoy. Early '50s rounded neck profile gives you something serious to hang onto.
The body isn't chambered just for weight relief, although your back and shoulder will definitely appreciate it. Gibson uses a computer numeric controlled router to carve out carefully mapped areas that result in louder, more resonant guitars with increased sustain. The chambering is done before the maple top is put on, so there is no change in the guitar's rock solid appearance.
