The Gibson Custom Historic '57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar in Antique Gold resurrects the classic model that became known as the "working man's Les Paul". Boasting solid construction, impeccable hardware and versatile humbucking pickups, the '57 Goldtop bridged the gap between the workhorse Goldtop that came before and the flashy finishes of the figured-top sunburst models that were to come. The Gibson Custom Shop team have tried to remain as faithful to the original as possible, including True Historic spec parts and designing Custombucker pickups to recreate the sublime look, playability and tonal character of the outstanding '57 Les Paul Goldtop.

Classic '57 Les Paul

The Historic '57 Les Paul Goldtop is shaped to the legendary single-cutaway body profile that has won over generations of adoring fans. Sticking to a faithful tonewood partnership, the body is built using lightweight solid mahogany that is paired with a two-piece plain maple top finished in gold and protected by a coating of nitrocellulose lacquer. The result is a rumbling midrange energy infused with an upper mid to high clarity, and an understated yet undeniably elegant finish. Hide glue is used to reinforced construction, and you can rest assured that this beauty can cope with performance demands night after night.

Chunky neck design

Fitted to the body is a solid and stable mahogany neck. Gibson have employed a long tenon joint to improve sustain, whilst reinforcement once again comes from the application of hide glue. The neck is carved with accuracy to a medium-chunky C-shape profile, which tapers from a .9-inch depth at the nut to a 1-inch depth at the 12th fret, affording a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The generous 24.75-inch scale length allows the strings to resonate freely whilst emphasising a saturated midrange response. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is secured using hide glue to maximise stability. The fingerboard is home to 22 narrow tall frets that are adorned with cellulose trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style and replicate the authentic '58 feel.

Custombucker pickups

Having the fit and feel would be nothing without the tone, which is why the Gibson Custom team designed the unique Custombuckers that slot into the neck and bridge positions perfectly to produce rapturous tones. You'll find 2500K CTS volume pots and tone pots for each pickup, with a hand-wire harness with Bumblebee capacitors to guarantee the smoothest attenuation, whilst a Switchcraft pickup selector toggle switch allows you to shift seamlessly between each pickup. From crisp and cutting to fat and funky, this Les Paul can do it all.

Immaculate hardware

From the headstock to the end pin, the Historic '57 Les Paul Goldtop boasts superb hardware across the board. The ABR-1 bridge and lightweight aluminium tailpiece partner up to anchor each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock bears single-band Kluson deluxe tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully. The pickguard, control knobs, switch tip, switch washer, and jack plate cover are all replica renditions of the original, which complement the body finish with a flourish.

Each model is supplied with a brown/pink lacquered '50s replica case to keep your Gibson Custom Historic '57 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar in pristine condition, wherever your music takes you.
