Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul Deluxe 2000 Goldtop
Made exactly 20 years ago this very unusual Les Paul was one of a limited edition range based on the Les Paul Deluxe's of the 70's. Original examples were often made of maple necks and 4 or 5 piece bodys, this one however is made to much higher modern standards but retains the look of that cool mini humbuckered Les Paul Deluxe of the 1970s.
This Goldtop has the usual bronze powdered gold finish and natural back and sides. It's hefty mahogany provides a powerful punch and top end attack that combined with the mini humbuckers makes for a really dirty sounding Les Paul. It's sounds like a really angry telecaster!
Being a special edition guitar this is definitely a good investment. These limited runs always hold their value and will likely be worth a lot more in the future.
It plays wonderfully having recently been set up and dressed. It's in pretty decent condition for a 20 year old guitar showing only some buckle rash on the back. No chips or dings. It comes with it's original purple lined brown Gibson hard case.
Thanks for looking!
