Find of the Week: A Full Rig From Gibson’s Golden Era

This week's Find of the Week is a package deal that collectors might call a gold standard: it's a 1954 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop paired with a 1959 Lancer Amp.

Gibson's goldtop Les Paul hardly needs an introduction—it's earned its reputation as one of the most widely played and universally recognizable electric guitars. The gold finishes were sported from the Les Paul's inception in 1952 to 1958 and have gone on to become first-rate prized possessions for collectors. Meanwhile, the tweed '59 Lancer amp packs in 14 watts of warm tube tone—equipped with a similar circuit as a Fender Deluxe—and is particularly famous for its sweet, creamy mid-range that can keep up with even the loudest bar band.

This is a 1954 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop & 1959 Lancer Amp.

According to the seller, Seattle's Emerald City Guitars, both pieces are single family-owned and in excellent condition, making for a perfect pairing. As they write in the listing, "It is clear this is a well-loved and cared-for pairing as they are both in excellent shape with minimal blemishing and expected wear from use. This is about as good as it gets!"

The guitar includes its original hardshell case and is paired with the amp for an asking price of $50,975. Go for the gold, check out the full listing for more photos and information, and make an offer on this museum piece today.
