(The Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1954 Les Paul Limited Run electric guitar is a wonderful reproduction that offers supreme tone and playability. This classic Gibson Les Paul guitar features a carved maple top, a mahogany back, one-piece mahogany neck with long neck tenon, an early '50s rounded neck profile, 24-3/4" scale length, and a 1-11/16" nut width. It is highlighted with cream binding on the body and on the 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Its finer appointments include nickel hardware, trapezoidal inlays, pearl Gibson logo headstock inlay, and vintage tulip-head Kluson tuners.
The Historic 1954 Les Paul Limited Run guitar is equipped with dual Gibson P-90 pickups (a single P-90 on the Antigue Goldtop model) that offer a snappy, slightly gritty response, with a chunky midrange, firm lows, and sweet, musical highs. The P-90 was the standard pickup on all Gibson guitars in the late 1940s and into the 1950s and because of its crisp, bright tone it has experienced resurgence in popularity with many of today's modern rockers. In the bridge position, the P-90 packs plenty of snarly cutting power, while in the neck position it can be surprisingly rich and refined. You'll find that the P-90s' high output and biting treble has more nuanced harmonic coloring than the typical single-coil pickup.
The Historic 1954 Les Paul Limited Run comes protected in a Gibson Custom Shop hardshell guitar case and includes a Certificate of Authenticity and full owner's manual and instructions.

I got my first Les Paul this year. I have only waited about 20 plus years. It cost a small fortune but it was worth it! These guitars play sweet and one of the neat things about it is that it is ALL AMERICAN MADE! It's not a piece of import junk! I love the action. My hat is off to Gibson!
