Sensational!!!

Sold – Hardy

From Freddie King to Jeff Beck, many great pickers have been attracted the unique character of the wraparound tailpiece of a 1954 Les Paul™ Goldtop. Some believe its direct link to the body stud screws maximizes sustain while others believe the wraparound bar creates a distinct tonality and vocal quality. Whatever the case, there is certainly something special about this early year in the Les Paul Model’s history and Gibson Custom Shop created this ’54 Reissue to perfectly recapture the look, feel, and tone of the originals. It features Heavy Aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab. The Murphy Lab Heavy Aged finish treatment, paired with heavily aged hardware, simulates decades of heavy play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original example from the Gibson Golden Era.
