"You're looking at a 1952 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with Brazilian Rosewood fretboard and just the coolest vibe ever! If you are looking for a great investment, that you can actually have fun with, this is the ticket right here! In case you are not aware, 1952 was the first year that the Les Paul was produced. So this guitar is among the 1st ever! Needless to say, this is about as collectable of a guitar that you will find anywhere on the planet. The action is nice and low... and the sound is indescribable! I love this guitar, and you will too! She's 100% original, and yes, she's still ready to rock, after all these years!

Here's the lowdown on the features:

Goldtop Finish
Carved Maple Top
Solid Mahogany Body
Brazilian Rosewood Fretboard
50's Rounded Neck Profile ~ Nice!
22 Frets
Pearl Trapezoid Fret Inlays
Nickel Hardware
Combo Trapeze Wrap-Around Bridge ~ No "Lean"! Nice and Straight!
Original Single Ring Vintage Tuners
Dual Gibson P-90 Pickups ~ Sounds absolutely awesome!
2 Volume & 2 Tone Controls
All original Electronics, pots, caps
3-Way Toggle Pickup Selector
She Weighs only 8.1 lbs.
Serial # ~ Gibson did not serialize in 1952, so there is no serial #

She just celebrated her 59th birthday, and has been VERY well cared for over the years. This is no "poser", "relic" that was created in a custom shop... This is a true rock & roll hero, with the vibe and charector that can only be developed by time and experience. This is a great axe all the way. There guitar is in perfect working order, with clean pots, and great intonation. The nut has a chip in the plastic, next to the bass "e' string, but it still functions perfectly... and yes, there is finish checking, nicks, dings and scratches on this guitar, but she's exceptionally clean for her age! I've included many pictures, which show the accurate condition of the guitar. You will NOT be disappointed with this one. She's a true gem! The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs... the frets are strong, with plenty of life ahead... and the sound is as sweet as it gets! Also included is the original case, which is also in great condition! Whoever wins this vintage "piece of history" is gonna be completely STOKED!!"
