Historically accurate single cutaway maple and mahogany body in Antique Gold

Armed with the most accurate measurements, right down to the smallest detail, Gibson has released what it's calling the Vintage Original Spec (VOS) Series, which includes this gorgeous replica of the '57 Les Paul "Gold Top." Under the gold paint beats the heart of any Les Paul, which is the classic combination of a finished mahogany body and a maple top. The single-ply cream body binding on the guitar's top adds that final touch of class. This Gibson Les Paul Gold Top features a lightly-aged finish.

Mini Humbuckers deliver broad and balanced tone

Created by engineers to fit into the slot of a P-90, the Mini Humbucker offers classic Gibson tones. Its smaller size and magnetic field give the Mini Humbucker a bright and focused output. You'll love the unique tone and response of these Gibson Mini Humbuckers.

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 "slim taper" neck in 1960. Some players love those huge old necks while others prefer the slim taper design. This '57 Vintage Original Spec Les Paul Gold Top has a bound mahogany neck with long neck tenon and the original chunky '50s rounded neck profile, which is historically accurate.

Includes Custom Shop case and certificate of authenticity

Naturally, a guitar as special as the 1957 Vintage Original Spec Les Paul Gold Top will come with a plush-lined hardshell case as befits its lofty status as one of Gibson's most amazing achievements (even if it wasn't apparent back in the 1950s). So this one comes with a really sweet Custom Shop case that will offer the ultimate protection for your investment for many decades to come. The reissue Gold Top also comes with a certificate of authenticity, which proves your good taste.
