Gibson Custom Shop 1954 Les Paul Standard V2 Neck Gold Top VOS Lightweight M2M
From Freddie King to Jeff Beck, many great pickers have been attracted the unique character of the "wraparound" tailpiece of a 1954 Les Paul Goldtop. Some believe its direct link to the body stud screws maximizes sustain while others believe the wraparound bar creates a distinct tonality and vocal quality. Whatever the case, there is certainly something special about this early year in the Les Paul Model's history and Gibson Custom Shop created this '54 Reissue to perfectly recapture the look, feel, and tone of the originals.
These are Made to Measure models, ordered with the custom 60s V2 neck carve and lightweight mahogany bodies.
