My beloved Gibson Les Paul Gold Top '56 reissue Guitar is on sale AGAIN, as you have probably noticed.
This guitar is relisted, because it was bought and not paid by an "expert", than it was bought and not paid by another "expert".
So this seems to be a very seductive guitar, especially for poor guitarists..... ; - )
As all guitars on ebay seem to be "KILLERS" and have "PHANTASTIC TONE", I will try to describe the musical capability of this fine instrument in a slightly different way:
RAW BLUES POWER. John Lee Hooker, Neil Young. You get the idea....
In combination with its genuine fat BOOTLEG NECK you will have a massive, singing tone with a lot of harmonics. There was a
certain reason, that I played this instrument for 11 years, nearly every day.
Those, who appreciate GIBSON products, will know, what this instrument is.
Some details worth and necessary to mention pertaining the neck:
- completely straight,
- headstock has NO cigarette burn marks....
- Scratches on the back (see picture).
- Laquer thinned out on back of neck
- Laquer chipped away (see picture)
- Some Scratches (see picture)
- NUT: plastic nut replaced with a custom figured bone nut,
done by my trusted luthier
- PLASTIC cable jack plate replaced with STEEL jack plate
- Steel stop-tail piece: replaced with vintage aluminum
- Original greasy cheap lousy Capacitors:
replaced with JENSEN paper-in-oil capacitors.
If you wish, I can drop in a pair of VINTAGE SPRAGUE paper caps, as well, for the winning bidder.
And, of course, the winning bidder can have the ORIGINAL STEEL STOP TAIL PIECE.
I would like to sell this instrument to real musicians and not to "EXPERTS".
Thank you for watching.

As certain customers have asked for a written authentification, the so-called "COA", the definite answer is:
There was no such paper in 1998 issued by GIBSON, in no case. Period. This is the fact, regardless how much we wish, the would have supplied one. SO: NADA. NON.NIENTE.NULL.ZERO.
So, please do not ask for one, I will not falsify one for you.
BUT: Checking the serial number assures you the authenticity; and, of course, you can contact GIBSON, as well.
GOOD LUCK !
