OVERVIEW

Does it get any better than this?

This special '56 Les Paul takes the True Historic equivalent with its Custom Shop P-90 pickups and adds the mojo of a Bigsby tailpiece. Instead of a Goldtop, you get a lustrous ebony finish on the top, back & sides. Other Historic features include a double-carved plain maple top with lightweight mahogany back, hide-glue construction, ABR-1 bridge and reissue tuners. The ensemble is lightly aged resulting in a guitar that looks and feels like it's been cherished all these years. Includes hardshell case.
