This is one Gibson got the neck just about right. If you like a 54 chunky type neck on your Les Paul then you should definitely check this one out... Oh yes, it is also in MINT condition.
Sorry, this item was sold out.
A brilliant of what Gibson’s Custom shop can do, this 1954 Reissue (R4) Les Paul Standard feels like quality through and through. This example is from 2006, features a really nice chunky neck, and is in completely mint and unused condition.
Definitely worth a look before you go and spend more on a new one…
Here’s what Gibson says about the Custom Shop 1954 Les Paul:
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.
From Freddie King to Jeff Beck, many great pickers have been attracted the unique character of the “wraparound” tailpiece of a 1954 Les Paul Goldtop. Some believe its direct link to the body stud screws maximizes sustain while others believe the wraparound bar creates a distinct tonality and vocal quality. Whatever the case, there is certainly something special about this early year in the Les Paul Model’s history and Gibson Custom Shop created this ‘54 Reissue to perfectly recapture the look, feel, and tone of the originals.
