The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature replica-level detail, from plastics recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range.
While Gibson's other solid body guitars enjoyed various levels of success, the infamous "Tuxedo" look of the Les Paul Custom has enjoyed a long reign as the epitome of high-style, tone and playability.
Today's True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom is a detailed recreation, true to every aspect of the original's stylish looks, legendary tone and distinct "fretless wonder" playability.
Known as - "Goldfinger" among collectors, Charles Daughtry's original 1957 Goldtop #7 3308 is as recognized for its tone as it is easily identifiable by its trademark finger wear around its cutaway.
Collector's Choicee #36 is the first Standard Historic Spec in the series for 2016 and is handcrafted based on digital analysis of the original as well as collaboration with its owner.
To pick up one of the Limited Run guitars and play it is to experience the tone, look and feel of #7 3308 just as Charles has since adding it to his collection.
You'll find CC#36 to be one of the most gorgeous sounding, excellent feeling and character-rich Les Pauls we've ever crafted.
