Do you yearn for the chunky neck of an early Les Paul? The historic accuracy of a '50s no-wire bridge? The authentic look of a case-lived Golden Era classic? The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue Ultra-Light Aged is your chance to get your fretting hand around these features and more. The 1957 Les Paul lays claim to what many guitarists consider to be the Holy Grail of neck profiles: the Chunky "C". The '57 is also known for its no-wire ABR-1 bridge and Seth Lover-designed PAF ("Patent Applied For") humbuckers. The Gibson Custom '57 Reissue brings these characteristics to a period-correct collectible that's accurate down to the gold paint, replica parts, and hot hide glue construction. Factor in an authentic Ultra-Light Aged finish brought to you by the Gibson Custom Shop's Murphy Lab — named for Master Artisan Tom Murphy — and the 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue is one of the most accurate re-creations this side of vintage. Take it from Les Paul lovers: if you're chasing that true '57 vibe, you're going to revel in all the Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue Ultra-Light Aged has to offer.
