A true classic, this '57 reissue Les Paul is as cool today as it was back then, complete with a Brazilian Rosewood board, this one is in amazing shape, an absolute beauty. Picking up this instrument is like holding a little piece of history. The Gibson Reissue instruments are incredible time capsules of an era that defined rock music as well as the electric guitar. The thick neck profile of this R7 is amazingly comfortable to hold, and boasts a special, powerful resonance that cuts right through the mix. This axe absolutely sings! The iconic Goldtop is gorgeous and this guitar comes alive with one of the best sounding sets of PAF style pickups available on the market. They are woodsy, throaty and clear with a balanced midrange and are instantly recognizable as the emblematic sound of the 50s. As far as the rest, this axe hardly needs an introduction. Huge, deep Mahogany sound enhanced by a the Maple cap that gives the instrument top-end chime and sparkle.
