The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Gold Top Electric Guitar is an embodiment of the Gibson legacy, a reincarnation of the classic design that rocked the world of music back in the 1950s. Respecting the significant history and timeless appeal of the original Les Paul Standard, Gibson has meticulously crafted this model to inspire the musicians of today with the same dynamic potential.
The body is a carefully selected piece of mahogany, providing a rich, resonant tone that is characteristic of the Les Paul series. Topped with a layer of maple, the guitar body ensures a balanced output with an excellent blend of warmth and clarity.
Crafted from mahogany, the neck features a '50s vintage profile that comfortably fits in the hand and invites expressive play. The rosewood fingerboard boasts a 12" radius with medium jumbo frets, and is adorned with iconic acrylic trapezoid inlays, enhancing the classic aesthetic of the guitar.
This Les Paul Standard model is equipped with a pair of Burstbucker pickups; the Burstbucker 1 in the neck position for lush, smooth tones, and the Burstbucker 2 at the bridge for brighter, tighter output. Paired with Orange Drop Caps and traditional 2xVolume, 2xTone controls, you get an excellent range of tonal possibilities.
The gloss nitro finish, in the striking Goldtop color with a natural back and sides, gives this guitar a vintage appeal while offering superior protection to the wood. The look is completed with Vintage Deluxe tuning machines with Keystone buttons, and it all comes in a sturdy Gibson hardshell case.
The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Gold Top is a true testament to Gibson's commitment to quality, tradition, and innovation. With its authentic design and outstanding playability, it is a must-have for any serious guitarist who appreciates a bit of rock 'n' roll history in their hands.
