“Amazing 30th Anniversary Gold Top, one of the cleanest one’s on the Planet”

Gibson Les Paul 30th Anniversary gold top appeared, marking the 1952 introduction of the Les Paul. However, the guitar itself is a based on a 1958 model Gold Top. Built between 1982 and 1984, these were the last Les Pauls built at Gibson’s historic plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Gibson Les Paul 30th Anniversary Gold Top features reissue 1958 body specs, with a single piece mahogany body and a maple cap, a one-piece mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard with a 30th Anniversary engraving on the 19th fret position marker. As a reproduction of a 1958 model, it has what were then new humbucking pickups. These pickups were designed by Tim Shaw, one of Gibson’s engineers, as one of the earliest efforts by Gibson towards reproducing the original PAF design and build.

CONDITION: This is in Truly Excellent Condition, there are very few small impressions on the Top a little shrinkage of the Gold near the binding, very typical for Gold Nitro, the back has just a few marks nothing really of any consequence, there might be a few small impressions on the back of the neck but no wear spots. . The Original Case is also in Excellent Condition, all latches and hinges work properly, no heavy marks. This Guitar was played very little and has spent most of it’s life cased and safe. It is Aces , thanks for checking it out. If you have any questions call the shop we love to talk about this one. It would make a find addition to nay Stage, Studio or Collection.

“We have researched all present and past sales on these, and we would put this one up against any others on the planet on condition, it is very Nice”
