    Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Dark Back Electric Guitar (with Case) Product Description

    Seth Lover's fabled "Patent Applied For" humbucking pickups were added to the Les Paul model in 1957. These dual-coil pickups, quieter yet more powerful than the single coil P-90s that preceded them, combined with the ABR-1 to create a guitar with unprecedented sustain and tone. The 1957 Goldtop Historic Reissue is equipped with BurstBuckers to faithfully replicate the warm, vocal quality and rich harmonic content of the legendary originals. Now part of Gibson's proprietary Vintage Original Spec series -- the next step in their journey toward perfection.

    Vintage Finish
    Aged to perfection, Gibson VOS (Vintage Original Specs) guitars undergo an "aging process" for an oxidized finish and all the dings and scratches you would expect from a well-worn guitar. VOS series guitars look and feel like a 50-year-old guitar should.
