By 1957, Gibson' evolving Les Paul Model guitar had already undergone several key modifications that would remain as the foundation of the iconic version known around the world today as the Les Paul Standard. But while the addition of the new ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece one year earlier had greatly improved the overall functionality of the Les Paul, nothing would compare with the addition of Gibson' pioneering new PAF humbucker in 1957, the pickup that truly made the Les Paul a legend. The 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Reissue from the Gibson Custom Shop is the closest thing to taking a time machine more than 55 years back in time to land your own original, and now for 2013 it features a host of new details to make it the most accurate recreation of the '57 Goldtop ever created.
