The Altitude Summary

Talk about resonance!  This R7 is one of the loudest unplugged Les Pauls we've set our hands on.  An awesome balance of tone comes through the Custombuckers giving this guitar that signature "quack" that 1957 LP enthusiasts crave.  Between the stunning gold top and VOS finish, this guitar transports you back to the '50s while maintaining modern reliability.  

Iconic Design and Craftsmanship

The '57 Les Paul Standard stands as an iconic marvel within the guitar world, celebrated for its captivating Goldtop finish and comfortably rounded neck profile, among other remarkable features that make these instruments truly exceptional. In the quest to craft the quintessential '57 model, the advancements made by the Gibson Custom Shop in 2015 provided the perfect canvas. The Historic Select series, adhering to the True Historic specifications, boasts meticulously accurate plastics, ultra-thin finishes hand-sanded to perfection, and a distinctive "HS" serial number, setting the stage for an extraordinary creation.

The Final Masterpiece

To complete this dream ensemble, the introduction of the Wildwood Spec Custom Buckers marked a first for the Historic Select/True Historic lineup, bringing a favorite humbucker set into the mix. The decision to employ the Custom Shop's renowned aging department introduced a tastefully light-aged finish, or VOS finish, adding character and a sense of history to the instrument.  The result is a Les Paul that not only meets but exceeds expectations, offering an unparalleled blend of cool, resonance, and assertive attitude that demands recognition. This '57 Les Paul is a testament to the magic that happens when passion meets craftsmanship, resulting in an instrument that's nothing short of spectacular.
