Vintage '68 Gibson USA Les Paul Goldtop Gold Top Electric Guitar WHSC


⭕ This is the 52 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. This is the real deal- first year reissue example. 24.75 scale. 1 11/16 nut width. 9.6 lbs. The Les Paul has been an icon of guitar for over a half century and the Goldtop is the most celebrated of the line. In 68, Gibson decided to honor the Goldtop with its very first reissue. The slab mahogany body and one piece neck create a resonance that is just unbelievable. The 9.6 lb weight gives it that famous Les Paul push. Together, those two qualities combine to create one of the best Paul tones you will ever hear. When you plug in, it only gets better. The dual P-90s soak up the rich natural tone and add their own infamous character. The bridge position here sounds absolutely huge- lots of complex mid character and big bottom end. The neck pickup is a sustain lovers dream- seemingly endless sustain when overdriven. Roll back the tones and the Sprague caps give you access to a palette of sweet warm sounds. Beautiful. The neck here is an almost exact replica of the 52 neck- .94 thick at the 5th fret with a slightly elliptical C profile. Talk about your reissue, the feel and tones are exceptionaly close to the original Goldtop. The look here is mesmerizing- naturally aged Goldtop finish with full body and neck binding. There is a very old headstock repair,
