Ref# 00585: This is a stunning 1952/1957 conversion Gibson Les Paul Standard Gold Top. It has the rare 1952 UNBOUND neck and is sans serial number. Jim had this guitar set-up as a'54 with P90 pickups so when we got a hold of it, we decided to have it converted to a'57. Parts are all historically accurate. The humbuckers are from our dear friends at Echopark Instruments, their infamous prototype 1958-A Humbucking pickups found underneath the hood of Joe B's Echopark V only.
You will not believe the tone on these things. Our tech was blown away. You have our personal guarantee that you will never get a better tone than these Echopark pickups.
This guitar is, by no means, a perfect 1952 or 1957 Les Paul. Jim was particular about his touring and recording guitars and each of his guitars were set-up specifically for his preferred tone & playability. We encourage you to ask any questions you have about the guitar before making an offer. This guitar comes with a Gibson Historic hardshell case and Material Issue sticker from their former label, Mercury Records.
