Vintage 1957 Les Paul Standard Mirabella Conversion from 1952


via this auction

via the seller: "1952/1957 Mirabella Conversion Les Paul 57 GT: This is Mirabella conversion started life as an all gold 1952 Les Paul with P90’s. The 57’ modifications include a reset neck to 57’ angle and specs, refret to wider frets, plugging the P90 PUP holes and re-routing them to PAF Humbucker specs, addition of a stop bar, a Tune O Matic, complete refinish to 57’ paint specs and the gold color is a perfect match. All work was done by Mirabella Guitars and Restorations. Anyone in the “Biz” knows the top two conversion luthiers were Chris Mirabella and Terry Mueller…and I say “were” because neither of them are doing conversions any longer. THIS IS ONE OF THE LAST MIRABELLA CONVERSIONS ON THE PLANET. I’m lucky enough to own two of them

This guitar in the industry is referred to as “Mirabella Conversion,” by astute members of the guitar community. This beauty has all original 50’s parts (62' pots) including two awesome tone monster REAL PAF’s, 50’s tuners, back plate plastics, pickguard, truss rod cover etc…with the exception of the PUP rings this is 100% original 50’s majestic wood and tone! Comes with a 70’s red lined plastic hinged Gibson protector case A.k.a. “chain saw” case. Looking to get $26k with PAF’s or $22k without…so contact me directly for info or questions. All you guitar forums experts…what can I say? I know you’ll try to pick this apart…but it is the real deal and you all know it!.."
