For the Gibson, the Les Paul models made in 1957 are among some of the most sought-after vintage Les Pauls. With this in mind, Gibson Custom has created this wonderful Historic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop... but this one is not just your run-of-the-mill '57 Goldtop reissue. Not only is this 1957 Les Paul Goldtop crafted with a coveted Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, but it also comes dressed in a deep, rich, and dark-hued double goldtop finish. With vintage-correct electronics and hardware, this 1957 reissue really sounds and looks the part. Whether you're specifically looking for an iconic Gibson Historic '57 Goldtop with a Brazilian rosewood 'board or just want a classic screaming Les Paul, this 1957 Les Paul Goldtop is the one that you've been waiting for your entire life.

Coveted Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard
Brazilian rosewood is extremely difficult to acquire, so the Gibson Custom Shop was beyond thrilled that they were able to get their hands on this beautiful, dark selection of Brazilian rosewood used for this Les Paul's fingerboard. After the Custom Shop began producing the Historic Les Paul models with Brazilian rosewood 'boards, the demand for these guitars grew tremendously, and ever since, players and collectors have always been on the hunt for these instruments.

Deep, Rich, and Dark-Hued Double Goldtop Finish
Another feature that makes this run exceptionally special is the shade of gold the Custom Shop used for the top. They call this shade "Double Gold" because it was developed to capture the same kind of depth, richness, and darker hue that can be seen on some 1957 originals.

Vintage-Correct Electronics and Hardware
For that iconic vintage voice and style that helped make this guitar the legend that it is today, this 1957 Les Paul Goldtop comes fitted with period-accurate electronics and hardware. For that timeless Les Paul growl and bite, this beauty sports a set of PAF-inspired CustomBucker Alnico III humbuckers along with hand-wired electronics featuring legendary Bumblebee capacitors. Kluson single ring tuning machines and a Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece combo tie together this incredible reissue.
