SOLD! - 2007 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Historic '56 Goldtop R6 VOS Reissue
Upgraded with a EUR 150,- Throbak Vintage 50's Style Les Paul Guitar Wiring Harness - 500k CTS pots and BumbleBee .022uf Paper in Oil capacitors. The original harness is included in the case.
This pretty rare '56 VOS Reissue is in excellent condition and all original. It is an absolute joy to play and has the perfect blend of early Les Paul features like the P90's and optimal playability with the Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece setup.
The open sound is very nice and balanced, resonant and it has lots of rich 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 nice fat C profile that's firmly in the hand but its not as big as some of the '50's necks. The fretboard is a beautiful dark glossy Rosewood and overall the guitar looks really shiny and new and has a few marks and spots on it. Weighing in at 4.0Kg it is nearly spot on for a proper 50's Goldtop reissue.
Comes including the original Black Gibson Custom Hardshell Case and COA Certificate.
