One of the coolest Gold Tops we’ve had in the store, this 1956 guitar was just acquired from a private collection and features an extremely rare “dark back” finish! The lightweight mahogany body is extremely resonant, while the maple top appears to be highly figured and beautifully flamed beneath the original Gold finish. With a perfect mid-50’s neck profile and a pair of fantastic sounding “Soap bar” P90s, as well as an original stop bar tail piece and ABR-1 bridge, this guitar is a perfect example of why 50’s Les Paul Standards are thought to be some of the best sounding electric guitars. The incredibly rare Dark Back finish and original brown Lifton case make this a perfect guitar for any collection. EXC w/OHSC $45,000.
