1957 GibsonLes Paul – Goldtop

Here’s one unbelievably vibey and original 1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop! 1957 was the last year for P-90s on the Les Paul with the newly designed PAFs appearing later in the year. This particular Goldtop sounds great and shows some honest wear from being played over the years; it’s clear the prior owner certainly loved playing this one! Even cooler, it has a slight shadow fade from where the original hang tag on the switch rested, most likely the guitar was displayed in a window at an old store. Entirely original with the exception of a replaced jack plate.
