This is an incredible opportunity to get a Heavy Aged Goldtop with some great specs! You'll notice that this guitar strongly resembles the CC36 Collectors Choice Charles Daughtry '57 Goldtop. The guitar appears to be a repurposed CC36 that was finished in 2018. All True Historic parts used so it's even higher specs! Rolled binding, headstock logo in correct spot for 50's GT's, heavy aging, bigger fretwire like CC36. The guitar plays and sounds excellent. Just set up and ready to be played! The guitar is mint, it's unplayed with original lacquered AGED hardshell Lifton-style case, COA, paperwork etc.!
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 mans 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 Shops tireless quest for exacting accuracy to the original year of production, from the woods to the construction to the parts and precise contours throughout.
