    Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1956 Les Paul Goldtop Vintage Original Spec Electric Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    Ted McCarty's Tune-o-Matic bridge (also known as the ABR-1) started to appear on higher-end Gibson guitars as early as 1954. The ABR-1 was added to the Les Paul Model in 1956 and, with individual saddles to adjust each string's length as well as thumbwheels to adjust the overall height of the bridge, represented a quantum leap forward in intonation and a marked improvement in tone and sustain. Now part of Gibson's proprietary new Vintage Original Spec series -- the next step in the journey toward perfection.
