2018 Gibson '57 Reissue Les Paul 3-Knob Proto in Gold!

Nice resonant '57 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with a very rare 3-knob variant! This one is very cool as it came from the factory this way and is quite likely a leftover Gibson Billy Gibbons Pinstripe Goldtop that they repurposed! Seems to be a one-off as on the box it is called a "Proto". Factory aged as well. All True Historic parts used. The guitar plays and sounds excellent. Just set up and ready to be played! The guitar is mint, it's unplayed with original lacquered AGED hardshell Lifton-style case, COA, paperwork etc.!

The iconic 57 Goldtop has been the tool of choice for countless guitar heroes. Its elegant gold finish, classic solid mahogany/maple construction and versatile humbucking pickups make one wonder what else can I possibly need in a guitar? This is probably why it gained the reputation as the working mans Les Paul less flashy than its figured-top sunburst counterparts from 1958-1960, but almost identical under the hood. 

This 2018 Historic Series recreation exemplifies Gibson Custom Shops tireless quest for exacting accuracy to the original year of production, from the woods to the construction to the parts and precise contours throughout. Two new updates for 2018 include the inclusion of all True Historic-spec parts and, for the first time, narrow/tall frets which bring the tone and playability closer to the character of the originals.
