1996 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop '56 R6 Goldtop LPR6 Vintage Reissue
1996 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop 1956 Custom Shop Historic Reissue "R6" in great and original condition.
The R6 is a pretty rare guitar and an absolute joy to play. It has the perfect blend of early Les Paul features like the P90's and optimal playability because of the Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece setup.
Its sound is nice and balanced, very resonant and it has lots of sustain. The Deep gold nitro lacquer has a beautiful gold tint, and the classic combination of a carved maple top and solid mahogany body has never looked any better.
The strong quartersawn mahogany neck has a chunky C profile that's firmly in the hand but its not as big as the '54 necks. The guitar has a few nicks here and there but nothing serious and over all this looks really shiny and new! 4.1Kg so pretty ok for a mid 90's Goldtop.
Comes including the original Brown w/ pink shroud Gibson Hardshell Case and because it's from the pre-COA era thats about it!
