Gibson Les Paul Standard Pelham Blue, 2016

Gibson Les Paul Standard Pelham Blue, 2016

Here’s an unusual find – a very good condition Gibson Les Paul Standard in Pelham Blue, built as a 2016 model and dating to the last day of 2015.  The Gibson Les Paul Standard appeared as a 1958 model and introduced Gibson’s new humbucking pickups. Prior to this, the Les Paul had been available in several forms – the Les Paul, Les Paul Custom, Les Paul Special and Les Paul Junior. All of those used P90 pickups except the Custom, which carried an AlNiCo ‘Staple Top’ pickup in the neck position.

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop, 1970

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop, 1970

Built from 1969 to 1985, the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe GoldTop was a renaming of the Les Paul Standard, but used the original P-90 body route and a pair of mini-humbuckers mounted in modified P-90 covers. This allowed for a low cost refresh of the model, co-incidentally using up parts Gibson had on hand. Initially introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul carried the GoldTop finish, a pair of P-90s, and a trapeze tailpiece.
