Gibson Les Paul Goldtop “All Gold”


Update: You can see the one and only Chris Buck with this very guitar on his YouTube Channel. We just added a link to it. Check it out it’s worth the visit.
Here’s a 1955 Gibson Les Paul Standard in all gold.
This one is a very nice example that has aged well. The top has darkened a little but has escaped any greening which plagues these finishes. The only signs of wear are the ubiquitous checking which adds to the character of the instrument. Towards the back we find that this too is in great condition, having escaped buckle rash and is notably lighter in colour than the top. There are a few chips to the paint but again nothing substantial.
The gold neck has some more wear than the body but there is plenty of the original paint left on there and it serves to add to the look of the instrument. The fretboard and original frets are in great condition with plenty of life left, making for a comfortable playing surface. The nut looks like it is a newer nut, replaced some time ago and the jack socket panel has a crack but is still holding up well.
The hardware is in good condition and has very little corrosion. All the plastics are intact and in good condition with very little fading, all electronics are present and correct with solder joints totally undisturbed and original, hot, vintage P-90 pickups sound truly epic.
This fantastic instrument won’t break your back either, its weights is very reasonable: 4,2kg.
The guitar comes with its correct brown Lifton hardshell case which itself is in excellent condition.
Sonically this guitar is just stunning. Such an evocative tone, the neck pickup is smooth and full whilst the bridge pickup bites without ever getting shrill. The neck profile is full and comfortable without being too much of a handful and the way the lacquer has worn gives it a wonderfully played in feel. This is the one.
