Description

    1955 Gibson Les Paul Standard "Gold Top." Serial number 5-8609. An exceptionally clean example of the classic Les Paul Standard from its fourth year of production. 1955 was a transitional year for the Les Paul model in which the wrap around bridge tailpiece from the fall of 1955, was changed to the standard tune-o-matic bridge that exists today. This example is an earlier 1955 with a standard wrap around bridge, and also features earlier style "speed" knobs which would be replaced later in 1955 for "bonnet" style knobs. The combination of P-90 pickups and wrap around tail piece is considered by most rock and roll players as a great combination. The guitar offered is near museum quality and includes its original hard shell case and hang tags. Excellent Plus condition. Accompanied by certificate of authenticity from nationally known expert Vintage Connection which in part states, "no breaks, repairs, or other issues" 100% original. From the Jimmy Crimmins 'Vintage Connection' Guitar Collection.
