Up for grabs is this beautiful Gibson Custom Shop 1956 (R6) Historic reissue VOS Les Paul Standard Goldtop from 2005. It’s a stunning looking Yamano export built by Gibson and selected for shipment to Japan. Maple top with mahogany back and neck. This ’56 has a very warm Goldtop and natural light back with some nice mahogany grain showing all around the sides. The rosewood neck is also very pretty with some really light/dark contrast all along the length. It feels nice and light at 4.1kg. Plays beautifully. Nice thick ‘56 profile neck. And the P-90’s on this thing are super aggressive.  Neck is dead straight, truss rod fine and plenty of life left in the frets. Absolutely no breaks or repairs. There is some nice VOS vintage-esque tarnishing to the gold metal hardware. It’s very clean with light playwear, a little edge scuff or two around the headstock, but nothing big or ugly. Well along the road to being a real vintage looker. Comes with original Custom Shop purple crushed velvet lined HSC, original Custom Shop certificate, Yamano booklet and all other case candy. A really special Custom Shop ’56 Goldtop. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story...
