The 2020 Gibson Custom 1956 Les Paul Gold Top Reissue VOS in Double Gold pairs the magic of Gibson P-90 Pickups with a 2 Piece Bridge. This is a magic combination. This is a Les Paul meant for the clean channel or light overdriven. Sure, it can handle high gain, but the subtleties and nuances are shine in lower gain scenario's. A Fat Neck profile just like on the original 56's is present which certainly helps make this one tone-full beast.
Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. And this Gibson Custom 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail. A 2 Piece Maple Top is carved and glued via a Long Neck Tenon to a Genuine Mahogany Body. A Genuine Mahogany Neck is topped with an Indian Rosewood Fingerboard
1956 was the only full year in which the Les Paul model featured the powerful P-90 pickups and the adjustable ABR-1 bridge setup, a combination that allowed the Les Paul model to intonate, sustain, and thrill like never before. This Gibson Custom Shop '56 Reissue captures the look, feel, and searing sound of an original 1956 Les Paul Goldtop in exhaustive detail, featuring all solid woods, vintage-accurate gold paint, authentic replica parts, Historic narrow/tall frets, and hot hide glue construction.
