Vintage Correct Parts is proud to offer, for your consideration. An incredibly fine Vintage Gibson 1953 Les Paul Standard Goldtop. You're looking at a killer. This is basically a 1954 in spec as it has the proper neck-set angle that was used from late 1953 onward.It also has an inked serial number on the back of the headstock which was also introduced in late 1953. Photos are included of the wrap tail bushings! When we acquired this Goldtop it was setup as a wrap tail, there was a considerable "shadow" of a bigsby on the top of the guitar, where the finish had not faded from decades of being equipped with a B-7. We had a very rare "pinched waist" 1950's Bigsby B-7 in the shop and elected to set this up with a Bigsby as it originally left the factory that way! These mid 50's Les Pauls are shooting up in value. Clean, no issues examples are getting harder and harder to find. Not only is this guitar an incredibly great investment, it's also an incredible sounding instrument.
The p-90s in this are pure magic and the guitar rings like a piano in it's unplugged acoustic state. Simply one of the finest vintage guitars we've ever had the pleasure to play and offer for sale.
A tonal BEAST that screams. Neil Young's "old black ". Brand new frets - plays perfectly. No headstock cracks, no repairs, no overspray.Original Grey Tiger caps and wiring. Three original pots - (bridge volume pot was changed decades ago). Original switch tip and cream R/T "poker chip" switch ring.
