From Freddie King to Jeff Beck, many great pickers have been attracted the unique character of the "wraparound" tailpiece of a 1954 Les Paul Goldtop. Some believe it's the wraparound tailpiece that creates a distinct tonality, vocal quality and maximizes sustain. One thing is for sure: there is certainly something special about the Les Paul wraparound models and the Gibson Custom Art & Historic Division created this '54 Reissue to perfectly recapture the look, feel, and tone of the originals.
