Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop Darkback VOS


You can never go wrong with gold: this Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop is a gem

There's something about gold guitars. Gold is associated with profit, with the best of the best. And let that be exactly what the Gibson Custom Shop specializes in. This Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop Darkback Gloss is in itself proof that beautiful guitars (continue to) come from this legendary brand. It may not be new or innovative, but: never change a winning team . The countless legendary records and concerts recorded and played with a Gibson Les Paul are living proof of this, because this is simply the sound of Rock and Roll, Blues, etc. The golden color of the Goldtop is of course beautiful, but this Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop has an extra surprise when you turn the instrument over and see the back. This is namely finished in a so-called Darkback Gloss version, which gives the guitar an even classier vibe than it already had. The chunky C-shape neck is exactly what you'd expect it to be, and it gives the Gibson that extra bit of vintage mojo. In terms of pickups you can expect the PAF sound, because with the Custombuckers Gibson has proven that it can not only approach that sound, but has even managed to reproduce it. This Gibson Les Paul Goldtop bites when it should bite, holds back when the guitarist softens, and offers the rich dynamic spectrum every Gibson fan dreams of. Truly a dream guitar. This Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Goldtop Darkback VOS comes in a period-correct case, including certificate and case candy. Great!
