Details

Straight out of the summer of ’69, this pre-owned Gibson Les Paul Goldtop is the epitome of Rock ’n Roll. With its Mahogany body and neck, and Maple top, this LP has the snarl and raw power one would expect from a vintage Gibson. The LeoSounds Vintage Player PAF "Gregor Hilden Signature" set matched with its old wood give this Les Paul all of the open, dynamic airiness one could want with the volume rolled back, and plenty of cut and vocal bark when rolled up. Additionally, their out-of-phase wiring allows one to achieve expressive and wailing Peter Green-esque tones in the middle position. Being an early '69, this LP has a 1  11/16” nut width and no volute on the neck, a one-piece mahogany neck and one-piece (non-pancake) mahogany body as well-- and at 8lbs-4oz this is an absolute featherweight from the era. These features paired with its 12” radius, classic Gibson 24 3/4” scale length, and rounded C neck make this 1969 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop an amazing player grade guitar, as loud and resonant as an acoustic guitar unplugged and pure vintage LP tone plugged in.
