Please make a selection from the drop down menu and browse through the Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop Dark Back VOS Electric Guitars that are currently in stock and have been individually photographed/listed by their unique serial number/weight.

In 1957, the Les Paul still came standard with the original classy, elegant gold top finish, but instead of the original single-coil P-90 pickups, it came equipped with a set of humbucking pickups that were designed to combat that notorious single-coil hum. Today, this '57 Les Paul Goldtop captures the pure essence of this legendary Les Paul incarnation with its vintage-correct construction, a set of Custombucker pickups, and era-accurate hardware and plastics. Whether you're a guitarist who craves coveted Gibson tone or a Gibson collector, the '57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS will fit in nicely with the rest of your collection!

Vintage-Correct Construction
Cloaked in an Antique Gold top nitro lacquer finish with a dark back, this '57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS carries a two-piece maple top over a lightweight mahogany back, and features a hide glue construction and long tenon neck joint for that timeless Les Paul tone. For that traditional feel, the mahogany neck is carved into a medium chunky profile while the rosewood fingerboard is topped with narrow/tall frets.

A Set of Custombucker Pickups
There's nothing quite like the sound of a vintage humbucker, and this '57 Les Paul Goldtop is proof of that. For this Les Paul, two vintage-inspired Custombucker pickups are married to hand-wired electronics that include a classic 4-knob control layout, Bumblebee capacitors, and a Switchcraft toggle. The result is that incredibly smooth, warm sound made famous by those original "Patent Applied For" humbuckers that made their debut in the late '50s.

Era-Accurate Hardware and Plastics
With vintage accuracy through and through, all of the hardware and plastics on the Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS hold true to the original examples, including a set of nickel-plated Kluson tuners, an ABR-1 bridge with a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, a nylon nut, a period-correct pickguard, and so much more!
