An authentic tribute to the guitars the defined electric guitar for generations, this pre-owned Gibson True Historic 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue lives up to its legendary ancestors. For the True Historic Series, Gibson used molecular-level analysis for unprecedented vintage accuracy, utilizing hot hide glue construction, correct carving techniques, and authentic appointments. These authentic appointments include rolled fingerboard binding, a double carved neck and top, a thinner peghead veneer, and a wet-sanded finish. The Alnico III P90 pickups give the classic bark and snarl they’re renowned for, while also cleaning up nicely for smoother rhythm playing when rolling back the volume knob. The perfect combination of these features makes this Gibson True Historic 1956 Les Paul an authentic embodiment of the original Rock ’n Roll spirit.
