You are looking at a Gibson Custom True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop Electric Guitar, serial number 76067. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.4 oz.)

The Gibson Custom True Historic 1957 Les Paul Aged Goldtop takes you back to the very last year of original Goldtop Les Paul. Employing Gibson Custom's 2015 True Historic specifications, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop offers a painstaking re-creation of this legendary pre-'Burst Goldtop Les Paul with unparalleled accuracy. With all of the features and appointments that can be found on the last of the original Goldtops, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop brings you closer than ever before to the real thing.

The hand-selected lightweight mahogany body lies beneath a plain maple top that features an authentic Original 1957 dish carve and single-ply True Historic Reissue cream binding. Just as the construction of the original, the top and back are joined together with a vintage-spec hide glue adhesive that's been applied by hand. Providing a truly authentic aesthetic, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop wears a thin Custom Shop Aged True Historic hand wet-sanded nitro lacquer finish with a Vintage Antique Gold top and Vintage Brown filler.

Carved into the exacting profile of the original, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop sports a one-piece, 24.75"-scale mahogany neck for that traditional Gibson feel and playability. The neck is topped with a one-piece, 12"-radius solid Indian rosewood fingerboard that features 22 frets, comfortably rolled True Historic Reissue cream binding, a nylon nut and aged nitrocellulose trapezoid inlays. Holding true to the originals, the True Historic 1957 Les Paul boasts an authentic reissue neck joint that's fitted to the body with hot hide glue adhesive, a thinner 1957 True Historic Holly head veneer, and a Historic Reissue truss rod with no tubing. Tortoise shell side dots further enhance the classic Gibson look.

The True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop comes loaded with a set of Custom Bucker pickups with period-correct True Historic Replica VOS nickel covers. Meticulously designed to the precise specifications of the original PAFs, these Custom Buckers deliver all the vintage-approved PAF tone, bite and growl that helped turn the Les Paul into the illustrious instrument that it is today. The time-tested control layout includes a 3-way toggle and independent tone and volume controls for each pickup.

The plastics and hardware employed on the True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop hold true to the originals in every way. All of the plastics including the pickguard, truss rod cover, control knobs, backplate cover, switch washer and trim rings have all been authentically re-created through molecular-level analysis of the originals. The vintage-accurate genuine nickel-plated hardware consists of an ABR thumbwheel bridge, a reissue lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and a set of reissue Kluson Deluxe Green Key Single Band tuning machines.

The Gibson Custom True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom Shop Aged Goldtop comes with the full protection of a period-correct reissue brown Les Paul hardshell case with pink fur lining. A bound Custom Shop True Historic Certificate of Authenticity completes the package.
