⚌Reduced‼ Heritage H150 Custom Classic Goldtop, 2003

The Heritage H150 is based on the classic Les Paul design, and built in the former Gibson plant in Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This tried and true design features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany body, Mahogany for the neck and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard. The dimensions and finishes also draw from the same source, and the tapered Heritage headstock is one of the few visual cues as to what these excellent guitars are.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson GoldTop Les Paul P90s, 1968

The Gibson GoldTop Les Paul first appeared in 1952 and was replaced in 1958 with the sunburst. The original design was dropped in 1961 and re-appeared in 1968. Until the 1954 introduction of the Custom, and 1955 Junior and Special, there was only one model – the Les Paul, available only with the Gold Top finish. The name ‘Les Paul Standard’ launched with the 1959 Sunburst, and along with the Custom model, continued through the transition to the SG body design. By 1968, demand for the Les Paul had increased dramatically, largely due to young Blues-Rock players like Keith Richards, Mike Bloomfield, and Eric Clapton.

Eastman SB56 NGD Gold Top Solidbody

The new Eastman SB56 NGD Gold Top Solidbody honors the traditional “LP” construction concept, with top quality materials, construction and components including stock Lollar pickups. Built using a one-piece Mahogany body under a solid carved Maple cap, and one-piece Mahogany neck with Ebony for the fingerboard and head plate, the Eastman SB56 is intended to look and act like a mid 1950’s gold top P-90 equipped model, and does a great job of it.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul Gold Top, 1953

The Gibson Les Paul Gold Top appeared in 1952 and rapidly began evolving and improving until reaching a fairly stable form in 1954. Initially, the Les Paul was equipped with a Les Paul-designed bridge-trapeze tailpiece combination, but also a very low neck angle. By early 1953, the trapeze was replaced with a stop-bar bridge. Soon after, the new ABR-1 bridge, known as the Tune-O-Matic, was added paired with a stop tailpiece.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Les Paul GoldTop Refinish, 1952

Introduced in 1952, the Gibson Les Paul GoldTop was Gibson’s first foray into the brand new solidbody electric guitar market. With the now standard carved Maple cap on a Mahogany slab body, a metal-flake Gold finish was applied to the top to increase its ‘upmarket’ appeal. The carved top was certainly a nod towards the archtops that Gibson was already well established in making, but importantly, Gibson had the equipment to do this, and Fender did not.
