Intro: 1956 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Electric Guitar with factory installed Bigsby. Rare collector's find! Weighs a near-perfect 9.04 lbs.

Condition: Gorgeous Vintage Condition!!! Extremely RARE!!! Normal playing wear--Was certainly well cared for....no "greening" on the top from sweaty bar playing. I expect it was a "home use" guitar. No breaks or repairs. Appears to be 100% Original!!! See photographs.

Neck: Medium large neck....not a baseball bat, but certainly no where near a 60 style. Just about a perfect girth! Perfectly Straight neck, with a perfect neck angle...features Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard with Pearloid Trapezoid Inlays. Small, vintage style frets show some moderate playing wear on the first seven frets, light fretwear beyond that....a serious player would probably want to refret this neck. Nut width is 1 11/16 inches. Pearl Gibson logo and silkscreened "Les Paul Model" in very good condition. Single-line Kluson tuners in great shape.

Body: Maple Top, Gold Color Lacquer Finish, Bigsby Vibrato Tailpiece -- The lacquer finish shows beautiful checking! Good strong color and coverage on the gold top....obviously this was not heavily played.

Pickups: Two Single Coil P-90s. My opinion....neck pickup was made by God Himself!!! It sounds amazing! Bridge pickup has fabulous bright and spanky tone, but not quite the strength of the neck pickup. Middle pickup position is fabulous!!! Sounds like George Harrison's Gretsch Tennessean on "Beatles For Sale"....it KILLS me!

Professional Set Up: Professional set up completed by our in-house guitar wizard, Noel Berry.

Action / Tone: Decent, very playable action, but this amazing vintage Gibson treasure cries out for a Joe Glaser 'pled'd" refret with a more modern, taller wire. This neck feels too good to not have a great set of frets!

Original Case: Comes with the Original Gibson Hard Shell Case in equally excellent vintage condition--shows normal wear.
