Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s P90 - Gold Top
As the name implies, Gibson Les Paul Standard ‘50s P90 takes the iconic guitar back to its roots, complete with era correct appointments and a pair of P90 pickups.
At its heart is the classic tonewood partnership - a solid mahogany body topped with a carved maple top which is finished with a Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer. This combination allows for the guitar to deliver a rich full tone, with bags of sustain and plenty of resonance, the essence of a classic Les Paul sound.
The body is married to a solid mahogany neck, which has been shaped into the rounded Vintage 50s profile and is topped with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard. The 24.75" scale, trapezoid inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets and 1.695" (43.05mm) nut width complete the traditional 50’s era feel and look.
Gibson have fitted the Les Paul Standard ‘50s P90 model with a pair of P90 pickups,, both loaded with ALNiCo V magnets. The pickups are wired through the traditional 3-way pickup selector, 4 knob configuration (2 x volume and 2 x tone), with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors. Combined, this classic electronic setup gives you access to those vintage era P90 loaded Les Paul tones with plenty of warmth, clarity and P90 bite.
Other appointments include the classic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons and aged gold top hat knobs.
The package comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
