This Gibson Les Paul was made in the USA in 1971. In 1971 & 72 Gibson released its first "reissues" of their 50's goldtops and customs. The goldtop version was called the "58" reissue even though by 1958 Les Pauls didn't look like this anymore. The vast majority of the '58 reissues were really '54 reissues with a wrap around tailpiece, but a few like this one had the tune-o-matic / stop tail set up. This guitar has a one piece body and neck. It is all original except for the tuners. It plays great and sounds HUGE. These are very rare in this configuration. It has been pro-setup and needs nothing. It comes with the original case.
