Welcome. This is the 2014 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul R6 1956 Gold Top VOS Guitar. 24.75" scale length. 1.70" nut width. .90" 5th fret depth. 8.7 lbs.

The Gibson Les Paul has been a staple in the guitar world since its introduction in the 1950's. This Les Paul R6 V.O.S. faithfully reproduces the fine playability and historic tonal qualities of the legendary 1956 Gold Top model.

The solid non-chambered body is amazingly resonant, and capped with an elegantly carved maple top, bathed in the timeless Gibson Gold for a time capsule look. The iconic combination of maple on mahogany produces a voice of warm, full lows and dynamic, articulate top end.

This historic tone is captured by a pair of Gibson P90 single-coil pickups, made just as they were 60 years ago, with two Alnico V bar magnets in each pickup, and coils wound with 10,000 turns of 42 AWG wire for full and fat tone when played with a hard attack and brilliant clean tones with a simple volume control rolloff. There are even Bumble Bee tone caps for genuine 'woman tone'.

The one-piece quarter-sawn mahogany neck has a full 50's profile, round and comfortable, with a long-tenon neck joint for better sustain. The bound rosewood fretboard is fast and smooth, adorned with the trademark Standard inlays. The frets are clean and glassy, set up to an action of 3/32' at the 12th fret.

And to create the perfect vintage and aged vibe, the R6 Gold Top receives Gibson Custom's proprietary VOS treatment for a gently worn and aged look. Truly unique and beautiful.

The condition of this 2014 Gibson Les Paul R6 1956 Gold Top Reissue is super excellent, and ships in the original hardshell case with Certificate of Authenticity. Quite simply as close to an actual '56 Gold Top as you will ever find. We have been an authorized Gibson dealer for well over a decade. Buy with confidence.
