1957 GibsonLes Paul – Goldtop

This 1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with its original gold hardware and factory Bigsby is a remarkably gorgeous and incredibly rare piece of Gibson history! Despite the Bigsby, the guitar has a very comfortable weight, and you can feel the whole instrument resonate with each and every note. This guitar has two first-year PAFs and can easily deliver that legendary tone with ease in any pickup configuration. The tuner holes were slightly enlarged to accommodate other tuners at some point, but there are no extra holes and the original tuners are back on the guitar. With all original components and even the original sales receipt, this guitar really is the total package!
