A meticulously crafted re-creation of an American icon”the Goldtop.
The beauty of the Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Reissue Electric Guitar will make your jaw drop. All the glowing vintage beauty 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 Les Paul tone. Early '50s rounded neck profile provides vintage Gibson feel, too.
As if that weren't enough, this limited edition features a limited edition Antique Gold finish and a walnut back. If you like Goldtops, you'll love this. But you'd better hurry if you want to get your hands on one.

This guitar has it all! Amazing tone, humungous neck! Man they made baseball bat necks in the 50's and this guitar proves that! If you love the feel of a fat neck with tons of sustain then look no further! I have owned my fair share of guitars but this one takes the cake! I prefer the walnut back too. It?s gorgeous and I couldn't imagine having one with a dark back. The potted burst buckers have amazing clean tone and shattering high gain scream as well! I love this guitar and wouldn't trade it for the world!!
