2010 Gibson Historic '55 Les Paul Hot Mod Series in Sunburst!
Beautiful, Rare and GREAT-sounding '55 Reissue Les Paul with Original Case, COA, etc. The finish looks great and was meant to mimic the 50's Goldtops that were sent back to the factory in 1959 (or thereabouts) to get updated with their new Sunburst finish and humbucker pickups! A very cool feature is that Gibson Custom Shop had these tops with off-center seam like most original 50's goldtops. Fat 50's neck that feels very comfortable!
The guitar has been played lightly over the years and is very presentable. Some stray marks as shown. A beautiful guitar that plays and sounds great. Comes with everything including COA, all the matching paperwork, etc from Gibson Custom.
"The Custom Hot Mod Refin Wraptail embodies turning a 1955 LP to a '58-60 LP down perfectly, and even exhibits the only obvious tell tale sign of such alterations: the slightly off center seam in the two piece maple top which would have typically been hidden beneath the opaque Goldtop finish. This guitar begins with the template of a 1955 Les Paul with solid one piece lightweight mahogany back and carved maple top, adds the "Refin" element of rich nitrocellulose cherry sunburst finish, gives it the "hot Mod" of two BurstBucker humbucking pickups while retaining its early '55 wraptail bridge, represented by a TonePros wraparound bridge with locking studs and long steel anchors. Add it up and its a bundle of PAF-fired 'Burst tone in your hands."
