All original 1955 Goldtop Les Paul. Plays fantastic with a nice, full neck that feels great in the hands. The original P-90’s produce classic Gibson single-coil clarity with excellent dynamic response for an incredible vintage LP sound! In great overall shape with a few minor dings, some etching on the tuners from a prior owner, and typical finish checking. This vintage Goldtop is ready to be played or added to your collection! Includes original hardshell case.

Check out the feature from our luthier Tyler in the ECG Newsletter:

"I’ve always felt a little sorry for the folks who bought a Prius during their first year of production. Just a few more years of waiting for the technology to mature would have yielded much fewer headaches and a notably better product in nearly every respect.

Despite the relative simplicity, I find that new guitar models can also tend to suffer early growing pains. Anyone who has ever tried to palm mute a ’52 Les Paul could corroborate. By late ’55, however, the Les Paul had managed to work out a number of early quirks, comfortably settling into what many consider its ultimate form. The stop tailpiece and ABR-1 bridge are an industry standard configuration to this day.

The Gibson P90 is responsible for the greatest blues, jump blues, soul, and R&B guitar tone ever recorded. (Required listening: Sean Costello) The neck profile is everything you want from a 50’s LP. It’s pictured here with a Gibson GA-79 amp, formerly owned and used by Steely Dan’s Walter Becker." - Tyler Geske
