Gibson Les Paul Standard Gold Top 30th Anniversary 1982 with Original Tim Shaw Humbuckers and OHSC

This guitar was made in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop which were first produced in 1952. Although this is a 30th anniversary of 1952 the features and specs of this particular guitar are of a 1958 Goldtop with PAF humbucker pickups. This guitar features a one-piece mahogany body with a maple cap, one-piece mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard with 30th Anniversary inlaid on the 19th fret. Equipped with the very sought after Tim Shaw Humbucker pickups controlled by 2 volume & 2 tone controls complete with a 3-way pickup selector switch. The 24.75″ scale length neck has a medium to slim taper neck profile which is more commonly associated with 60’s Les Paul neck profiles. Another odd but very cool stock feature are the Double-ring Kluson Deluxe tuners which would have been period correct for a 1960-69. The nickel plated Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece are the classic Gibson Les Paul hardware options and are paired with gold speed knobs, a cream single-ply pick-guard and cream pickup rings.

This guitar is in excellent condition with only very light surface scratches on the back of the body and a few very small dings (see photos). The guitar shows very little signs of actual playwear and was most likely purchased as a collector’s piece. Freshly re-strung with 10-46 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning this guitar plays flawlessly, looks amazing and sound incredible! Comes with the original vintage Lifton style brown hardshell case with pink interior that has the vintage wear and tear look to it.
