About This Listing

In collectors condition. serial #063. super lightweight! 3,4 kilo's only! Only 100 of these hand aged Billy's were made in the nashville Custom Shop! The Les Paul Gold Top of rock immortal Billy Gibbons is bought back to life in this very special 1957 Gold Top Reissue featuring Billy's own, original pinstripe design. With the pattern drawn on carefully by hand, each Billy Gibbons Gold top has a unique touch and a bit of magic that you won't find on any other guitar, other than maybe the original, of course! Naturally, the Billy Gibbons Les Paul doesn't stop there. With tone that screams rock perfection, the classic combo of a chambered, one-piece mahogany body and Duncan Pearly Gates pickups recreate Gibbons' famous tone flawlessly. The cuts of wood for the neck and fingerboard are also, obviously amongst Gibsons best, and to round off this very-collectible package - this Aged Billy Gibbons 57 Gold Top comes with certificate of authenticity, hard case, and Billy's choice Reverend Willy strings, designed in collaboration with Gibbons himself. 1 of only 100 worldwide, this Aged Billy Gibbons Gold Top has added attention to detail with the wear on Billy's originals carefully replicated for a fantastic played-in look and feel. Were you expecting subtle? Then you don't know the player or the guitar. Gibson Custom is head over heels to present the legendary Billy F Gibbons' take on our most visually revered guitar, the Les Paul Goldtop. Re-envisioned by Rock and Roll's most compelling character and statesman to both style and tone, the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop gets the makeover of a lifetime from the outside in. Aesthetically, the first revision of an already eye-catching guitar in over 60 years is a masterpiece of style, featuring an original pinstripe design by Billy. the pinstripe design is recreated one at a time, by hand, by the very steady and respected hands of Rick Harris, along with our own artist, who Rick has himself trained. The subtle differences in each make each one a one-of-a-kind work of art. Adding to this unique individual character us Gibson Custom's hand-aging process, which captures the wear of Billy's own guitars with the added kitsch of a Texas-shaped wear pattern adorning each one's back (aged models only). As a player, Billy's world-renowned tone is delivered through two Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups, the only pickups to bear Billy's name and stamp of approval. Billy's signature tone is captured through the guitar's lightweight, chambered mahogany body, carved from a single piece of wood. The added benefit of the guitar's ultra-light overall weight makes it as comfortable to play as it is sonically inspiring. That comfort continues with its neck, a reproduction of Billy's own Goldtop profile. The Gibson Custom Billy F Gibbons Goldtop is being offered in limited runs of 50 hand-aged models, each played and hand-signed by Billy, 100 Aged models and 150 VOS models rounding out an offering of 300 in total.
