Pre-Owned Gibson Custom Shop 1956 Les Paul Gold Top 2013 Dark Back

Pre-Owned Gibson Custom Shop 1956 Les Paul Gold Top 2013 Dark Back


The new 2013 '56 Les Paul Reissue from Gibson Custom has so many of the great new improvements that they implemented on the 1959 Historic Les Pauls. The simple yet dramatic changes have elevated this year’s Historic Reissue to the "one to have" status. Gibson has reformulated the Gold finish and stain on the mahogany back. The Gold finish is now a richer and slightly greener shade which side by side to an original 56 les Paul seems dead on. All this adds a bit more depth to the top dish carve. The stain of the mahogany back now captures more depth and detail to the grain. Gibson is also using 1-piece  dark rosewood fingerboards. The neck is now fitted with hide-glue which will help with resonance as well. The  Kluson “Deluxe” tuners have been redesigned to be the most accurate reproductions yet. The body binding has been accurately darkened for more of a correct vintage look. If you were waiting to find that classic Les Paul that has the tone, feel and look that you could only dream about.... you definitely want to put one if these in your hands Today.

A very mint looking 2013 with the dark back option which was not really offered on the 2013 price list.
