SOLD! - 1952 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop w/ Trapeze Tailpiece

€ 32.500,00Prijs



This all original 1952 rare first year Gibson Les Paul Goldtop is a superb example of the legendary Les Paul Goldtop and has no cracks, no breaks, no repairs, no touchups etc and absolutely everything on this guitar is from 1952 like the really early hex-shaped tuners bushings, flat head pickup mounting screws instead of Philips head screws and tall speed knobs.


And even better: whereas a lot of these first year Les Pauls have problems with the action/neck angle, this one has a very nice low action and a comfortable big neck with room to spare! It really sings and is LOUD acoustically. Plugged the neck pickup is warm bluesy/jazzy and has a nice deep and rich sound, the bridge pickup is sharp and twangy and can do searing lead solo's, if you can... 


The body shows some finish checking and a picking area on the top near the pickguard where the finish has gone through to bare wood. Someone put a finger on that particular spot for almost 75 years I guess...


Comes with everything original 1952 including the Gibson Les Paul brown case with pink plush lining.


Many guitarists consider this to be the ultimate "blues machine" - the sustain on these guitars is quite unbelievable - and I for one think they are spot on.
