Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop 1957 Historic Reissue VOS 2009 Goldtop R7 w/ OHSC
Up for grabs is this really pretty Gibson Custom Shop 1957 (R7) Historic reissue VOS Les Paul Standard Goldtop from 2009. It’s a stunning looking ’57 with a great looking Goldtop and dark back, in very clean condition. The mahogany and rosewood grain on the fingerboard are especially nice on this one (pics). It is in all original condition, however we were informed that the gold tophat tone and volume knobs are from an original ’57 Les Paul! We cannot confirm this so I have not priced it in. Anyway, the guitar is nice and light at 4.1kg, with a big thick neck which you might expect to find on ’58! This Goldtop has a beautiful carve to it and the metal hardware is nicely tarnished, even a little bit green on the edge of the pick-up covers! It is clean but with a real vintage feel. Everything is original save for the knobs (which ironically may actually be original!) 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 nitrocellulose finish. It’s very clean with no big dings, paint chips, buckle-rash etc. Just light playwear which adds to the vide of this awesome machine. There is a little patch of dullness on the back near the selector switch plate. Comes with original Custom Shop purple crushed velvet lined HSC and original Custom Shop individual serial number booklet plus other associated other case candy. A really special Custom Shop ’57 Goldtop. I’ll let the pics tell the rest of the story….
We carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special. All pictures are of actual guitar, we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
