This Les Paul was made to be a collector's item

Gibson Custom has gone all out for the 50th Anniversary Marshall Les Paul Goldtop. This 1957 Goldtop is a historically accurate reissue Goldtop that has been hand-aged by Tom Murphy. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck with long neck tenon and the original chunky '50s rounded neck profile are setup for optimum playing action and feel. A one-piece mahogany body and maple top conjure the classic Les Paul tone you expect from a Gibson.

Burstbucker pickups deliver classic Les Paul tones

Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on '57 Les Paul tone. Instead, the '57 Les Paul sports a pair of Gibson's Burstbucker Alnico II humbuckers with historically unmatched bobbin windings. Custom 50th Anniversary appointments include a 12th fret Marshall logo, a commemorative pickguard with a "Marshall 50th" badge, and a Jim Marshall signature truss rod cover. The Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary Marshall Les Paul Goldtop is a true collector's piece.

Mahogany neck with early 1950s profile and rosewood fingerboard

When early Les Pauls are discussed (and they are at great length), a big issue is always the neck profile. The earliest Les Pauls had big, fat necks made of mahogany. The neck was slimmed down a bit in 1959, and it finally evolved into what's known today as the SlimTaper neck in 1960. Some players love those huge old necks while others prefer the SlimTaper design. This Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary Marshall Les Paul Goldtop has a bound mahogany neck with long neck tenon and the original chunky '50s rounded neck profile, which is historically accurate.

Gibson Custom 50th Anniversary Marshall Les Paul Goldtop Features:
  • Historically-correct reissue of the iconic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop
  • Limited to 50 worldwide, 15 available in the US
  • Hand-aged cosmetics by Tom Murphy
  • 1-piece mahogany body with carved maple top
