1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with OHSC, Very Rare!

Early 1957 Goldtop – formerly owned by Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos. One of a very small group of Left Handed Stop Tail Les Pauls from the 1950s.

Thanks to Scott Jennings for reminiscing about this great guitar. I remember when Scott had it for sale in Vintage Guitar Magazine in the early 90s at Route 66 Guitars; somehow I knew I would end up with this guitar some 25 years later – it was worth the wait!

And thanks to Scott Freilich for taking time and making the extra effort to check out this guitar for me!

I don’t think this guitar was ever set up properly, but in Scott’s very capable hands, it’s turned into the monster that it is: Huge 3-D sound that fills up the room, resonates and sustains for days, this is what a vintage 50s Goldtop is all about; stunning in it’s tonal ferocity and brilliance!
