Renowned luthier Yuuki McClure of Player Grade Vintage, London, UK, has weaved his wizardry magic to breathe new life into this old Les Paul and boy, has he done a mighty fine job of it too!!

 

Yuuki turned an original '56 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop which was in a really neglected and sorry state into this amazing rich and snappy sounding '59 conversion which has ‘that real' Burst tone in spades. And this isn’t a common thing at all by the way! It’s a big rich sounding guitar with lots of airy harmonic overtones and a touch of hair and edge.
