One of the earliest prominent Les Paul iterations, the '54 Les Paul Goldtop is adored by many great pickers, from Jeff Beck to Freddie King. The Gibson Custom Shop has produced this faultlessly faithful reissue, giving players everything beloved about the original '54 Goldtop, wrapped in a polished, new package. Featuring an immaculate Les Paul Goldtop build, regal '54 design with wraparound bridge, and genuine tone emanating from Custom Soapbar P-90's, this reissue guitar is for the expert player that understands the legacy of the extraordinary '54 Les Paul Goldtop.

Immaculate Les Paul Goldtop Build
With a design process bordering on unhealthy obsession, the Gibson Custom Shop examined every aspect of the original '54 Goldtop - from the woods and materials used, to the design and construction process. Doing so enabled them to come out with this incredible axe - a perfect reissue of the notoriously recognizable guitar. This Les Paul has a 1-piece lightweight mahogany body under a 2-piece plain maple top with hide glue fit. It's also got 1-ply Royalite binding. The neck is solid mahogany, shaped into chunky "C" profile, with a scale length of 24.75". As a whole, the construction of this guitar provides a tight, solid feel that lends itself to smooth playing and wonderful resonance.   

Regal '54 Design with Wraparound Bridge
Every aspect of this guitar was pored over to make sure it was dead-on like the original. The fretboard is a gorgeous cut of Indian rosewood, fit perfectly with hide glue. It boasts 22 frets and aged cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays, in classic Gibson style. The bridge is a simple, effective wrapround. With its direct link to the body stud screws, it's thought to increase sustain, in addition to adding a distinct tonal character. This Goldtop also has sleek gold speed knobs for some extra charm. The headstock sports the one-of-a-kind Gibson logo, surrounded on each side with vintage-styled Kluson tuners. Every inch of this guitar is a beauty. It even comes complete with a brown/pink Lifton reissue 5-latch hardshell case.

Genuine Tone Emanating from Custom Soapbar P-90's
It doesn't just look like the original 1954 Les Paul Goldtop; it sounds like it too. The Gibson Custom Shop outfitted this axe with Custom Soapbar P-90 pickups at the neck and bridge. With their warm, wide-range tone, they obtain a precise vintage sound straight out of 1954. There's a volume and tone control for each pickup, wired with CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors. The electronics on this '54 Les Paul Goldtop reissue hold a powerful, authentic sound you'll never get over.
