I have personally inspected this instrument. The guitar described above is, in my opinion an all original 1956 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top. The body of the guitar and all parts, including the Bigsby tailpiece, conforms to the typical specifications of the model for the period of when it was made. The condition of this instrument does show normal playing wear and the lacquer is checking due to the age of the instrument. The fretboard does need to be refretted for optimal playability. Overall this guitar is in excellent condition for the age. The market velocity of this instrument is very rare and would be a model of extreme interest for collectors and musicians.
