***1989 Gibson Les Paul 56′ Gold Top Reissue / Pro Showcase Edition***

Here is a RARE 1989 Gibson Les Paul Pro Showcase Edition In Excellent Condition!! We got this guitar from the Original Owner who bought it new here in Atlanta @ Rythym City some 20 years ago – We called Gibson as well as you can & they told us this Les Paul is the December of 1988 Guitar of the Month & it was called the Les Paul Pro Showcase Edition in the 1956′ Gold Top Specs. There were ONLY 250 of these ever produced & 50 went out of the country & the other 200 stayed in the USA, I really doubt you finding another one in as NICE of condition this one is in —————

As stated this is a Very RARE Gibson Les Paul in 100% Original Excellent Condition. Only 200 were built for the USA market in 1988 & early 1989. The Original Owner had a large collection of Les Pauls & he stated that way back when he had swapped out the original case & this Les Paul has ended up in this early / mid 1970′s Black Gibson Case ( which is worth more $$$ ) with red lining – Gibson got the top right as the Gold in this Gold Top is really authentic looking, not the greenish hue you see on some. Neck profile is subjective, but I would say it’s a middle ground of a Fat 59′ & a Slim Tapered 60′s – This Gold Top weighs in @ 9lbs 10ozs – I am a Tele guy & this 56′ Gold Top reissue is very hard for me to put down. It plays itself & sounds wonderful – This is truly a Very Collectable Gibson !!!!!!
