2016 Gibson Les Paul 1956 Custom Shop 56 Historic R6 ~ Aged Goldtop

You’re looking at a 2016 Gibson Les Paul 1956 Historic Custom Shop with a goldtop aged finish, P-90 pickups and an awesome vintage vibe! If you’re looking for an old-school vintage vibe, but you don’t have $100k to throw down, this is the one for you. The action is fast and smooth, and the P-90s sound absolutely awesome! I want to point out that the aged finish was actually done after-market… and not by Gibson. She’s otherwise all original, and we just put on a fresh new set of 10-46’s, so she’s all dressed up and ready to rock your world!

She was just born in 2016 and is in great “aged” condition. Since this was intentionally aged, I’m not going into too much detail on nicks and dings. The top has plenty of finish checking, while the back and neck do not have any checking… While I’m not sure which company actually did this aging, it was done very tastefully and looks fantastic!

Also included is the original Lifton Gibson custom shop hard shell case, the case candy and certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
