Gibson Custom Shop Willcutt Exclusive 1956 Les Paul Standard V2 Neck Gold Top Lightweight VOS M2M (224)
1956 was the only full year in which the Les Paul model featured the powerful P-90 pickups and the adjustable ABR-1 bridge setup, a combination that allowed the Les Paul model to intonate, sustain, and thrill like never before. This Gibson Custom Shop '56 Reissue captures the look, feel and searing sound of an original 1956 Les Paul Goldtop in exhaustive detail, featuring all solid woods, vintage-accurate gold paint, authentic replica parts, Historic narrow/tall frets, and hot hide glue construction.
These are Made to Measure models, ordered with the custom 60s V2 neck carve and lightweight mahogany bodies.
