Gibson Custom


The Gibson 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue VOS is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. 1956 was the only full year in which the Les Paul combined powerful P-90 pickups with the adjustable ABR-1 bridge, allowing the guitar to intonate, sustain and thrill like never before. This Gibson Custom Shop '56 Reissue nails the look, feel and searing sound of an original in exhaustive detail. It features a 1-piece lightweight mahogany body with a 2-piece maple top, vintage-accurate gold paint, authentic replica parts, historic narrow/tall frets and hot hide glue construction. The Les Paul Goldtop Reissue VOS comes with a brown and pink Lifton reissue 5-latch hardshell case.
