Gibson 1952 Les Paul Goldtop 1957 Conversion Original Vintage Used

44,990.00

Description:

Beautiful Gibson Goldtop from 1952 meticolously converted to ’57 specifications. The conversion was made by Jim Weyandt from JamCity Guitars while the top was repainted by the renowned Kim La Fleur from Historic Makeovers. Probably the best luthier in the industry when it comes to correctly and authentically revarnishing the old Les Paul with nitro. The guitar is fitted with a pair of original PAF’s and original Top Hat Bell Knobs from 1956-1959. The electronics are original, too, while the mounting rings, the ABR-1 and the pickguard are incredibly well-made replicas. In the past, a neck reset was carried out and the pallet underwent a very small, barely visible repair. Both jobs were carried out to perfection, so structurally the instrument is very stable. The sound, the look and the feel are nothing short of phenomenal.
