If you bought a Les Paul back in ’56, you would have gotten your hands of the rare combination of P-90 pickups and an adjustable ABR-1 bridge. Now, you can obtain that same coveted combo with the Gibson Custom 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue. Enjoy the fat snarl of the P-90s, along with the intonation and sustain of the ABR-1. And, of course, you get the chunky neck that was standard issue back in ’56. The 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue is a unique beast. If you're a Les Paul aficionado, you’ll want to get your hands of this one. The 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue's Chunky “C” profile neck is the Holy Grail for many Les Paul players who prefer thick necks. If you're in this camp, those '60s SlimTaper necks aren't for you — wrapping your fretting hand around a juicy tree trunk of a neck is the real deal. The 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue is your kind of axe.
