Lovies Guitars is excited to present this 1997 Gibson 1956 Reissue Les Paul Standard Single-Cut Electric Guitar LPR6 with a Goldtop Finish! 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.
When the Les Paul first came out, the P-90 was the only pickup option. And when PAF humbuckers came out, P-90s were all but reduced to “budget pickups.” Well, it only took about a decade or three for many guitar players to come back around to the good old P-90. Why? Because they sound amazing! Warm and creamy, shiny and full of life, the Custom Soapbar P-90s in this 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue capture the very essence of the classic pre-PAF Dog Ear P-90. Roll back the tone and keep the volume in check, and you’ve got access to the liquid jazz lines Les Paul himself liked to play, or open them up and tap into a slightly rude and gritty tone. Simple as they are, these classic pickups give the 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue the wide range of classic tones you crave. This guitar is in great shape with finish checking around the knobs, a couple by the switch, one on bass side body and on headstock, pickguard marks, several indents and a couple marks, rated at 8.5/10. All original and free from any breaks, cracks and repairs. Included with this guitar is an Original Hard-Shell Case and a complimentary sample of Fret-Not, our preferred fretboard cleaner, check it out at fretnot.net!
