    don't mind at all, she's a vain guitar and loves to have her picture taken. I've since matched her with an original '55 case, only thing missing is an original strap.

    Very cool photo!

    But, it is a refinished Goldtop from 1953 (if I remember correctly). This thread is just for Les Paul Customs made between late '53 and early '57.

    Still, Ol' Black is one fine sounding guitar, that I have been fortunate enough to hear in concert a few times!

    Back to Customs!

    Here's a circa 1955 or 1956 Les Paul Custom with factory Bigsby that has been refinished. Looks great!

    Hi Zhivago,
    do you have more info, pictures,.... on this particular '56?
    [edit] I mean, does it look a real '56 and original besides the bigsby?

    Hi there,

    I don't think I have any more...I just had a quick look in my archive folder. :(

    Are you looking to buy this one?

    Hi, yes I'm considering it. But as my first vintage guitar, I'm stressed.

    That's understandable...from the above pic, it looks good, but closeups of the guitar would really help to tell for sure.

    Can the seller provide some more photos?
