Vintage 1957 Les Paul HUMBUCKER GOLDTOP

images via this auction

"Probably between 500 and 600 were made during the aforementioned period.

Compare that to 1500 Bursts, 19000 jrs, 7000 specials, and 7500 P-90 GOLDTOPS (that includes trapezes, wraparounds, and tuneomatics)

Because this guitar belongs to that first year of humbuckers at Gibson, many pickups left the factory without sticker. They were probably the first few batches. This particular guitar has one with sticker and one without. Figured I mention that even though it is expected to happen in 1957 PAF Gibsons."

BIN of $205,000
