The 2014 Gibson Custom Shop 56 Goldtop VOS, Left Handed electric guitar is a meticulously hand crafted re-creation of an American classic made at the Gibson Custom Shop.

Even the most discriminating Les Paul enthusiast will find the 1956 Goldtop VOS produces a tone that will grab your attention & put a big grin on your face!

Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) series guitars, the Gibson Custom Shop 56 Goldtop VOS, Left Handed is a meticulously hand crafted re-creation of an American icon made in the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, TN. The body, neck, hardware and electronics are historically accurate down to the most minute detail. With a period-correct Goldtop and back/neck finish color change, the 1956 Goldtop VOS nitro-cellulose finish in beautiful antique gold has a green tint with a patina of a vintage instrument, this is as close as Gibson has ever come to creating a guitar that might have popped out of a time capsule from 1956!

Specification mods that were adopted in 2013 include a one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide neck glue, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate body and fingerboard binding color & new Goldtop finish formula. Then treated to Gibson Custom’s proprietary VOS process for a gently worn look and feel.

The sonic powerhouse of the Gibson Custom Shop 56 Goldtop VOS, Left Handed electric guitar remains it’s two fat single-coil P-90 pickups. Their aggressive midrange, solid low end, and sparkling, silky highs with that ever so slightly gritty edge for added cutting power are what made the 1956 Goldtop an icon.

Gibson makes its P-90s today just like it did a full 60 years ago, with two Alnico V bar magnets in each pickup and coils wound with approximately 10,000 turns of 42 AWG wire, for plenty of beef when you hit ’em hard, but crystalline clean tones when you back off the guitar’s volume controls. Bumble Bee tone caps assist in that warm, singing tone when you roll back the tone controls too. To top it all off, the 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue plays superbly right out of its Custom Shop hardshell case thanks to a trip through one of Gibson’s state-of-the-art Plek machines before it leaves the Custom Shop floor.

Beautiful antique gold finish and an amazing resonant vibe. Nothing else sounds like a Les Paul with P-90’s.

Even the most discriminating Les Paul enthusiast will find the 56′ Goldtop produces a tone that will grab your attention & put a big grin on your face!
