Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2018 Gibson Custom ’57 Historic Les Paul Standard with a VOS Antique Goldtop Darkback Finish! The iconic ’57 Goldtop has been the tool of choice for countless guitar heroes. Its elegant gold finish, classic solid mahogany/maple construction and versatile humbucking pickups make one wonder “what else can I possibly need in a guitar?” This is probably why it gained the reputation as the “working man’s Les Paul” – less flashy than its figured-top sunburst counterparts from 1958-1960, but almost identical under the hood. This 2018 Historic Series recreation exemplifies Gibson Custom Shop’s tireless quest for exacting accuracy to the original year of production, from the woods to the construction to the parts and precise contours throughout. Two new updates for 2018 include the inclusion of all True Historic-spec parts and, for the first time, narrow/tall frets which bring the tone and playability closer to the character of the originals. MINTY Shape with a tiny indent under the pots cover and one on the side of the headstock, easy 9.8/10! ALL Original. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs! All of our guitars are fitted with a fresh set of our favorite strings by Stringjoy! Includes an Original Hard-Shell Case and a Free Sample of Fret-Not, our favorite fretboard cleaner out there, check it out at fretnot.net!
