Expert Review

The goldtop finish and cream color accents on the Gibson 1956 Les Paul Goldtop reissue may at first inspire an air of elegance and prestige, but that doesn’t mean this guitar can’t get down and dirty for some raw Chicago blues playing. The single-coil P-90 pickups in the neck and bridge pickups are ideal for getting the best of both worlds, whether you want your lead lines to have a snarling bite to them or a creamy thickness, this axe has got you covered; dial in the mix that best fits your vision using two tone knobs, two volume knobs, and a 3-way selector switch.

A one-piece mahogany neck gives way to a 22-fret rosewood fretboard that allows you to effortlessly peel off the type of guitar stylings necessary to play the blues. The Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece guarantee a singing sustain and also allows for quick and easy string changing. And although this guitar may look so classic that your first instinct may be to keep it under a glass case at all times, it would be a mistake to overlook the Goldtops durability, as it’s built like a tank and is coated with a finish to make sure the golden glow lasts for years. But just in case, this guitar comes with a hardshell custom shop case to keep your golden treasure extra safe.Rating: 4/5
