Our Take:

We're not sure how many times we've said it, but we'll say it again: a Les Paul with P-90s is a genuine recipe for success - which is, we're assuming, why the Gibson Custom Shop has released this '56 Les Paul Gold Top Reissue in Double Gold VOS. This incredible reissue features all solid woods, two Custom Soapbar P-90s, an adjustable ABR-1 and historically accurate, authentic replica parts and finish - all of which combine to deliver a guitar playing experience that is as incredible now as it was nearly 70 years ago.

Gibson's Take:

1956 was the only full year in which the Les Paul model featured the powerful P-90 pickups and the adjustable ABR-1 bridge setup, a combination that allowed the Les Paul model to intonate, sustain, and thrill like never before. This Gibson Custom Shop '56 Reissue captures the look, feel and searing sound of an original 1956 Les Paul Goldtop in exhaustive detail, featuring all solid woods, vintage-accurate gold paint, authentic replica parts, Historic narrow/tall frets, and hot hide glue construction.
