The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

SOLD Gibson Les Paul Classic GoldTop, 2017


Instrument Categories: , ,

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.

This example dates to 2017 and Gibson helpfully stamped ‘2017 Model’ below the serial number on the back of the headstock. It’s in great shape with very little wear of any kind. It plays well and to my hands is one of the most comfortable neck profiles and sizes. It’s very resonant and responsive.

As a 2017 model, its specs are a little different than the current version. At the time of writing, Gibson still has a legacy page for the 2017 model listing full specifications, and it can be seen at this link.
This Gibson Les Paul Classic GoldTop is sold with its original brown hard shell case.
