Gibson Les Paul Goldtop 1952


This clean 1952 Gibson Les Paul Model has just come in from the niece of its original owner! It's in stunning all original condition and still has its original hang tag, switch tag, and clean hardshell case. It has the early style tall knobs before the switch to the short speed knobs.

Make and Model: Gibson Les Paul Model

Year: 1952 (no serial number). Tall knobs. 

Measurements: 8.8 lbs / 4 kg overall weight. The neck width measures 1.7"/43.3 mm (1 11/16") at the nut. The neck profile measures 0.89" deep at the first fret and 0.98" deep at the 12th fret. The neck pickup reads 7.75k ohms and the bridge pickup reads 7.86k ohms.

Originality: All finish and parts are original to this guitar!

Playability: Excellent! While there is some fret wear, I didn't find it to be significant enough that it would benefit from a refret. The neck is straight and the electronics operate as intended. The truss rod operates as intended. 

Condition: Just enough wear to look vintage but not worn out. There are various nicks, dings and scratches throughout but none that affect playability or feel. The relic guitars should take note of this one!

Included: The original Lifton brown and pink hard shell case is included.

Fine Print: All guitars ship via FedEx Priority Overnight for domestic sales or FedEx Priority International. I offer a 48 hour approval period beginning on delivery for all sales during which you are welcome to opt for a return as long as the guitar is still in as-sent condition. I do not charge a restocking fee, but any non-refunded payment processing fees, outbound shipping, and return shipping costs are subtracted from the refund in the case of a return.
