Beautiful, Rare and GREAT-sounding '55 Reissue Les Paul with Original Case, COA, etc. The finish looks great and was meant to mimic the 50's Goldtops that were sent back to the factory in 1959 (or thereabouts) to get updated with their new Sunburst finish and Burstbucker pickups! A very cool feature is that Gibson Custom Shop had these tops with off-center seam like most original 50's goldtops. Fat 50's neck that feels very comfortable! It's in excellenmt condition with very minimal signs of use, comes with original case and C.O.A.

"The Custom Hot Mod Refin Wraptail embodies turning a 1955 LP to a '58-60 LP down perfectly, and even exhibits the only obvious tell tale sign of such alterations: the slightly off center seam in the two piece maple top which would have typically been hidden beneath the opaque Goldtop finish.  This guitar begins with the template of a 1955 Les Paul with solid one piece lightweight mahogany back and carved maple top, adds the "Refin" element of rich nitrocellulose cherry sunburst finish, gives it the "hot Mod" of two BurstBucker humbucking pickups while retaining its early '55 wraptail bridge, represented by a TonePros wraparound bridge with locking studs and long steel anchors.  Add it up and its a bundle of PAF-fired 'Burst tone in your hands."
