SOLD! - 1953 Gibson Les Paul Standard Goldtop Wrap around
*** Wow, we have found another amazing 50's Goldtop that rings like a bell!!!! ***
It is loud acoustically and really sings and rings. And plugged it's even louder :-) These early 50's Les Paul Goldtop's never fail to surprise me, time and time again...
This very beautiful 1953 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop is another an amazing mid 50's Les Paul. It was professionally converted from the early Trapeze to a perfect pitch Wrap-around tailpiece. It has no cracks, breaks or repairs whatsoever and is all original!
The gold finish is in very good condition with a little wear and some cool checking. It has a warm and lush vibrant glow over it with no overspray or touchups. The P90 pickups, pots and wiring are original with untouched solder, as are the plastics, switch and tuners. The bridge is a MojoAxe wrap around and the studs are vintage 1-inch long steel ones for extra sustain. Comes with the original 50's Brown case in pretty good condition.
It has a good neck angle with a nice action, plays effortlessly and it's hard to put it down! If you would decide to change the original frets for medium jumbo's in the future, this would enhance the playability even more so. The '53 neck has a soft round profile and feels super easy and comfortable in the hand.
The neck pickup is warm bluesy/jazzy and has a nice deep rich sound, the bridge pickup is aggressive and has a great attack and roars punchy lead sounds.
Many guitarists consider this to be the ultimate guitar as the sustain and sound on these are just incredible and it is hard to believe that they are only priced at about 10% of a real Burst..
