"We purchased this very nice example of a 1954 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top from actor, martial artist, and musician Steven Seagal. This baby has everything …it’s all original, has two screaming P-90’s, a great neck, and will ship to you in its original Lifton, brown with pink lining, five latch hard shell case. There is no provenance accompanying the guitar.

This guitar is all original. The tuning machines and truss rod work as was intended. The frets are original and have some wear but there is still plenty of playing time left. There is some very typical checking in the finish on both the front and back. Overall, this is a very nice looking guitar.

This classic Gold Top has two very well matched screaming P-90 pick ups. The neck pickup reads 7.60 k ohms and the bridge pickup reads 7.79 k ohms, both measured at the output jack. The potentiometer’s date codes are on the sides so we could only clearly see one of them which reads the 19th week of 1953. The solder joints are factory.

This Gold Top weighs in at 8 ½ lbs and will be professionally packed with care."
