Gibson Les Paul 1957 Historic Custom Shop ’57 R7 2018 Antique Goldtop
Cloaked in an Antique Gold top nitro lacquer finish, this ’57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS carries a two-piece maple top over a lightweight mahogany back, and features a hide glue construction and long tenon neck joint for that timeless Les Paul tone. For that traditional feel, the mahogany neck is carved into a medium chunky profile while the rosewood fingerboard is topped with narrow/tall frets.
A Set of Custombucker Pickups
There’s nothing quite like the sound of a vintage humbucker, and this ’57 Les Paul Goldtop is proof of that. For this Les Paul, two vintage-inspired Custombucker pickups are married to hand-wired electronics that include a classic 4-knob control layout, Bumblebee capacitors, and a Switchcraft toggle. The result is that incredibly smooth, warm sound made famous by those original «Patent Applied For» humbuckers that made their debut in the late ’50s.
Era-Accurate Hardware and Plastics
With vintage accuracy through and through, all of the hardware and plastics on the Gibson Custom ’57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS hold true to the original examples, including a set of nickel-plated Kluson tuners, an ABR-1 bridge with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, a nylon nut, a period-correct pickguard, and so much more!
