Gibson Les Paul 1957 Standard Reissue Murphy Lab Ultra Heavy Aged Gold Top #70609


Golden times …

The success story of the Gibson Les Paul began in 1952 with the now legendary Gold Top Model with P-90 pickups. The year 1957 was to become a milestone in the history of Gibson and of the Les Paul in particular. Pickup guru Seth Lover developed the legendary P.A.F. (Patent Applied For) humbucker pickup in the mid-1950s, which was first installed on the Gibson Les Paul in 1957. The double-coil design of the new P.A.F. humbucker resulted in higher output and absolutely no hum. The first Les Paul models with the P.A.F. humbucker pickups were delivered in the traditional "Gold Top" finish. And even though the later Sunburst models have achieved great fame, there are still die-hard fans for the shiny gold finish, which is simply absolutely classy. For these hardcore fans, the Gibson Custom Shop has now deliberately created an absolute authentic reissue of the humbucker-equipped 1957 Gold Top. At the same time, this is an homage to Gibson's golden age. The result was a 1957 gold top, which approaches the looks and tonal qualities of the best originals of that time. Duane Allman would love it!

Attention to detail and historically correct specs

This 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue Gold Top was developed in the Gibson Custom Shop with great attention to detail and based on historical construction methods. For this noble 1957 Les Paul Standard Gold Top Reissue, only strictly selected tonewoods were used. The "1-Pc. Solid Lightweight" body made of mahogany makes this gold-colored Paula a pleasant lightweight. Matched by a 1-Pc. Mahogany neck and a dark rosewood fingerboard that gives its player an absolutely authentic playing feel. Together with the installed Custombucker Alnico III pickups, which clearly carry the coveted P.A.F.-genes, this 1957 Gold Top is perfect for classic vintage Blues and Rock sounds. The extremely well-chosen combination of wood and electrics help this 1957 Les Paul Standard Gold Top to achieve a unique sound: Sustainable, singing and fat in tone!

Ultra heavy aging at the top level

While aging in the Gibson Custom Shop has been characterized by high professionalism in recent years, it was raised to a new level of quality in 2019 with the founding of the Murphy Lab under the leadership of aging guru and Master Artisan Tom Murphy. Today, Murphy Aging is even more accurate and realistic than ever and brings back the exciting mojo of an old original. The "Ultra Heavy Aged" Gold Top finish with the matching, heavily aged hardware simulates severe wear and tear on a guitar that has been "on the road" for decades and has thus received its unique character and sound. An absolute feast for the eyes! Wow! It is really worth taking a close look at all the detailed pictures!
