What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good. Top Refinished

What a find! This '54 Gold Top is still kicking with all it's original hardware and electronics! The refinish may take away from the originality but boy does it look good. Not only that, it's got that killer vintage mojo. The P90's have a well refined, thick, warm tone and when pushed break up in a way that'll tug your heartstrings. We'd consider ourselves the luckiest shop in the world to see another one of these come around so call in and inquire A.S.A.P!

SP Luthier Notes: New Nut, Fret Dress, Inspect for Originality

About Manufacturer

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
