• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

1953 Gibson Les Paul Model Uncirculated

This 1953 Gibson Les Paul Model Goldtop has just come in from the granddaughter-in-law of its original owner. It has the late '53 style proper neck pitch for low action. The story is that her husband's grandfather purchased it along with a GA-40 Les Paul amplifier for his church band, but he didn't actually play guitar. The church clearly didn't play it much either since it's mint with no checking.
