Gibson Custom

Description

The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Goldtop brings back a beauty from the golden age of guitar craft. Part of the True Historic series, this Les Paul is spec’d like a vintage original, but adds a Bigbsy B7 for organic sounding vibrato. It features a mahogany body with a two-piece maple top. The Double Gold finish has been lightly aged to perfection with a vintage original spec patina.


Dual Alnico III CustomBuckers supply warm and versatile sounds while playing clean. Turn up the gain, though, and it’s all about the growl and bite. This Goldtop pairs Kluson tuners with an ABR-1 bridge, locking in the tone for blues, rock, country and jazz jams all night long. The Gibson Custom ’57 Les Paul Goldtop comes with a certificate of authenticity and an aged hardshell case.
