Gibson Custom Shop True Historic 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Heavy Aged UK Limited #50005
This was part of a Limited run of only 5 sets a couple of years ago to celebrate the launch of the amazing True Historic Series. We sold this originally and now it’s back in unplayed condition with a special White Certificate and the Gibson Hard Case. A real collectors piece! Was £6495 when new!
Since the inception of the Historic Range in 1993 Gibson Custom has constantly improved its achievements in matching our reissues to genuine vintage guitars. New for 2015, the True Historic range represents the culmination of all past experience and a further re-dedication to truly fanatic levels of accuracy. Extreme measures such as a double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1956 Les Paul Goldtops offered. Add a pair of superbly authentic P-90 pickups, and you simply can’t get closer to the real thing… than the real thing.

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!
We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.
Hi Jeff, The guitar landed just over an hour ago and is superb in every respect, including an immaculate setup job Many thanks for your service. I shall be heartily recommending you to all my guitar playing friends, of whom there are many! Best Regards as always
