As you might have seen, John recently paid a visit to the Gibson Custom Shop Factory over in Nashville. He picked out some incredible guitars for our stock here at Peach and one that really stands out is this delicious '57 Les Paul in Lightly Aged Heirloom Gold, this is the closest we've seen to an original '50s Gold finish.
With a light weight Mahogany body, this Les Paul benefits from a Plain Maple top for the ultimate tonewood partnership. Rich and super resonant it offers premium tone and timeless aesthetics, while the Heirloom Gold finish looks a million dollars and really allows the wood to breathe and the natural tone to sing through. It's actually a Green over Gold finish that works together to deliver the most insane vintage vibe!
The Mahogany neck is topped with a crisp Rosewood fingerboard with classic Gibson Trapezoid inlays, this guitar looks every bit the real deal. With a 24.75" scale length and Jescar FW50078 frets, it retains that classic Les Paul feel. The ABR-1 bridge and light weight long stud tailpiece are aged nickel for an authentic vintage vibe.
The defining feature of the Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul are the custom wound Gibson Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are some of the most historically accurate PAF clones on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality; it's as close as you can get to the classic Les Paul tone.
Perfect for collectors and player alike, this Gibson Custom Les Paul is testament to the timeless design crafted by Les Paul all those years ago.
