The new Gibson Les Paul Standard Gold Top returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music.

***This is a new, unowned Les Paul but there is a slight defect where there is a tiny bit of wood showing without the gold paint on the top. (pictured) This blemish appears to be lacquered over and not of any concern for future issues.***

The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Gold Top pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back tolife. This guitar has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It's equipped with an ABR-1, the classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and aged gold tophat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
