A Benchmark Era.

This exceptional Gibson Custom Shop 2003 1954 Les Paul Goldtop features an extremely rare Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. This particular specification is unique, in that only a small portion of instruments shipped in 2003 were built with this holy grail tone wood, which would later be replaced with Indian Rosewood. This is important to note, as Brazilian Rosewood is the species of rosewood that was used in constructing the original pieces in the 50s, making this particular instrument both an extremely accurate and extremely sought after replication of it's vintage counterpart!

Musical instruments made from certain types of wood may be restricted for export from the U.S. under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). Due to this restriction, we are unable to ship instruments containing brazilian rosewood outside of the US. Please contact us for more information or to make alternate shipping arrangements.
