Overview

For 2014, Gibson have reissued a series of classic Les Paul models, produced with a level of meticulous detail that feels just like the sought-after instruments of the 1950s.

Vintage Original Spec cosmetics deliver super authentic Les Paul feel, identical to the original 1957 guitar.

Starting with the slightly worn finish, this Gold Top keeps the natural weight-relieved mahogany body, and neck, while the top is in vintage gleaming gold with a contrasting ivory trim. Built using the same methods and techniques used originally in the 1950s, Gibson's master luthiers have pulled out all the stops to make this re-issue as authentic as they get. Utilising Hide Glue across the neck joint, fretboard and nut like the original '57s, the one-piece rosewood bound fretboard is truly a dream to play and will stand the test of time as part of your collection.

Perhaps the most outstanding addition to the 1957 Les Paul was the PAF humbucker, which really set the world alight upon its introduction to the Standard line. In modern times, Gibson have recreated this iconic tone in the form of the 'Custom Bucker', which offer up classic PAF tone with all the nuances that helped pave the way for the 60s rock and roll revolution.

Other historical appointments include CTS potentiometers, bumble bee capacitors, rolled crème-colored fingerboard binding, single-ply thin binding around the body, and period-correct switchwasher and jackplate. The 1957 Les Paul Goldtop comes either a V.O.S. or Gloss finish, and comes with the standard Gibson Custom case and certificate of authenticity.

Gibson are renowned for continually pushing the boundaries on their latest and greatest guitars, but there is something special about the hand made VOS and re-issued guitars from the 50s and 60s. Truly a guitar for the keen collector or seasoned player, this stunning Gold Top represents Gibsons uncompromising dedication to reproducing authentic instruments that have changed the face of music forever.
