The '57 Goldtop celebrates its 60th birthday this year, and Custom is celebrating with six beautiful Diamond Anniversary models in limited quantities of just 60 each.
They feature vintage-accurate gold paint, the latest historic replica appointments, hide glue construction and Custombucker pickups which reproduce the tone of first-year 'Patent Applied For' humbuckers -- one of the main reasons the '57 Goldtop became so revered in the first place.
The Pearl Gold model takes the goldtop theme to new heights with a fine pearlescent sparkle added to the gold powder and a celebratory real diamond inlay the headstock logo.
Each guitar is equipped with a special 60th Anniversary truss rod cover and backplate.
The Les Paul Standard guitar has become synonymous not only with tone and playability, but beauty.
The figured maple tops have certainly helped it attain that status, and these limited edition Les Paul Standard Figured Top guitars take the idea to the next level with eye-popping, bold colors -- pulling out every detail of depth and curl of the highly figured maple tops.
At its core, it is still the iconic Les Paul Standard you expect, replete with the finest and most accurate vintage replica parts and historic all-hide-glue construction.
