Gibson Les Paul Classic GoldTop, 2017

Gibson Les Paul Classic GoldTop, 2017

The Gibson Les Paul Classic first appeared in 1990 and with a number of variations and finishes has been a part of the lineup ever since. The GoldTop finish has been around since 1952 as the first and only finish offered on the Les Paul model; this was the case until 1954 with the appearance of the Les Paul Custom in gloss black. Sunburst finishes were not offered on Les Pauls until 1957, paired with Gibson’s new Humbucking pickups.

Gibson Collector’s Choice #7 1960 Les Paul “Shanks”, 2013

Gibson Collector's Choice #7 1960 Les Paul "Shanks", 2013

A great instrument and rarity, the Gibson Collector’s Choice™ #7 1960 Les Paul “Shanks”, based on exhaustive examination of the original piece. From 2010 to 2017, Gibson released 40 Collector’s Choice models, all drawn from original examples. This Gibson Collector’s Choice™ #7 example was one of 300 built during 2013 at Gibson Nashville and is in excellent condition – but as it reproduces a vintage instrument, it does not look like it did when new in 1960!

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1959

Gibson Les Paul Junior Cherry, 1959

The Gibson Les Paul Junior was introduced in 1954 as a single cutaway slab bodied design, essentially a Les Paul without the carved Maple (or Mahogany, in the case of the Custom) cap. Intended as an entry level model, it carried a single P-90 pickup and very little decoration.

Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass Natural, 1973

Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass Natural, 1973

A wonderful rarity – a Gibson Les Paul Triumph Bass in natural finish! Introduced in 1971, the Triumph bass followed closely the Les Paul Bass, introduced in 1969.   The construction of the Gibson Les Paul Triumph bass is perhaps closest to the original Les Paul Custom, in that aside from the fingerboard, it’s entirely Mahogany including the carved top. No Maple cap! However, that’s where the similarities end, as the Les Paul and Triumph basses have low-impedance pickups and extra controls.
