Here is the latest addition to the run of 50's Goldtops we have had which currently stands at a tally of six this year, A perfect re-fret makes this one a killer player and has everything you can wish for in lush, Goldtop goodness...
Sorry, this item was sold out.
1954, classic Gibson Les Paul Standard Goldtop with classic ‘54 neck profile, classic vintage P-90 tone and a real nice, all original finish.
Our latest Goldtop is all correct bar a re-fret. This re-fret has been carried out extremely professionally and sympathetically with frets that are maybe a tiny bit larger then what it was born with back in 1954 but the work has been perfectly executed with proper dressing and virtually no tooling marks. I wish I knew who did the re-fret as it is a most exceptional job that only goes to enhance the real cool playing experience. In fact with it’s desirable chunkyish, ‘54 neck profile and the recent fret job, it makes this guitar a real joy to hold in your hands and play.
Everything else is all correct or original including the solder, all the paint work with no touch ups or overspray anywhere and all hardware and electrics.
Condition is excellent. It is not mint as you can see, there is some small amount of wear where the forearm contacts the body and some small dings on the back at the bottom. Fingerboard has virtually no wear, frets of course show hardly any marks at all and even the edges of the headstock is remarkably clean - just have a look at the many pictures in the gallery and you will see what I mean.
Case is original brown, 4 latch Lifton type with the classic pink lining and I have no reason to doubt this is the case the guitar came with from new.
Sound from both those P-90 picks is creamy with enough bite to satisfy anyone, I cannot personally see how anyone would be disappointed by this guitar either in sound, or playability.
So far this year, these have proven to be very popular and I wonder how long this superb example will last for…
