All the glowing vintage beauty of the deep metal-flake gold top with the thick, gorgeous tone of "Patent Applied for Humbuckers" the first year they came out. Now called BurstBuckers (a 1 at the neck and a 2 at the bridge), they're joined to the original CTS pots and bumble bee caps for totally authentic tone. Solid, non-weight relieved mahogany back. Early '50s rounded neck profile provides vintage feel, too. Includes hardshell case.

Comments about Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue Guitar Left-Handed:
Many people criticize Gibson for overpricing their guitars. For a long time I agreed with that...until I heard this instrument. The main appeal of this instrument is its sound: it is the equivalent of a fine wine that has aged for many years and has complex characteristics. Yes it costs a lot, but if you invest in this guitar you will be very, very glad you did. It's worth every penny. Superior tonewoods, vintage specs, and rock-solid craftsmanship are all prevalent in this instrument. It is responsive to the subtlest touch and when you play hard it reciprocates in kind. The depth of sound is incredible: I have never heard such stark delineation between the third (G) and second (B) string - you really have to make a decision which string you're going to use for the sound you want!
If you are a fan of Les Pauls, this guitar will satisfy your every desire. You'll never want another.
Superior tonewoods, perfect leveling of frets from the factory. Electronics (Burstbuckers) are as quiet as can be, and extremely responsive and powerful.
