Product Description

Here we have a very lightly used 2013 Custom Shop 1954 Reissue Les Paul that has it all! This R4 has a really nice goldtop finish on a solid mahogany body with a chunky mahogany neck, two soapbar P-90s, and nickel hardware. The guitar is near mint and comes with its original case, COA & all case candy.

The sunburst Les Paul Standards of 1958-’60 may grab most of the attention, but for plenty of no-nonsense players out there, the 1954 Les Paul Model “Goldtop” with two soapbar-style P-90 pickups and wraparound tailpiece embodies raw blues rock and roll more than any other guitar on the planet. From Carl Perkins’ recordings of “Honey Don’t” and “Blue Suede Shoes” to Freddie King’s “Hideaway”, a Goldtop was there—rippin’ it up and making musical history in the process. The Gibson Custom Shop’s 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS is the veritable second coming of this revered yet short-lived variant of the venerable Les Paul, presenting all the period-correct finepoints that aficionados of the breed know and love. With its hot, gritty P-90 single-coil pickups, deep-set, long-tenon neck joint; lightweight wraparound “stud” bridge; rounded ’50s profile D neck; and gently aged nitrocellulose “gold” top, which is actually a metallic bronze powder suspended in lacquer, this baby is the real deal, raw and ready to rock. While the Les Paul Model might have “evolved” from this point, fans of the ’54 know that it never sounded quite the same again, either. The direct feel and solid, resonant tone of that wraparound stud bridge can’t be matched by any other configuration, and the P-90 pickups are a world unto themselves, too—with the meat power of later humbuckers and the clarity and bite of single coils, P-90s have proven enormously popular for more than 60 years.
