The Custom Shop 1954 Les Paul Goldtop is as close as a player and collector can get to the really thing. The alnico-magnet P-90 pickups are the closest reproductions to original 50's P-90's that the company has ever produced.
The quality CTS volume and tone pots and "bumblebee" tone capacitors take all the tone from the pickup to the Switch craft output jack in glorious style.
To top it off, a final set up and fret dressing from Gibson's phenomenal PLEK system makes it as sweetly playable as a guitar can possibly be.
