Gibson Announces Guitar Of The Week #8 :: Les Paul Antique Deluxe Gold Top

Les-Paul-Antique-Deluxe-Gold TopGibson today unveiled the eighth installment in its year-long Guitar Of The Week series––the new Les Paul Antique Deluxe Gold Top.

As is all the rage these days, the guitar will be an “antiqued” version of Gibson’s classic Les Paul Deluxe, and is expected to feature the highly sought after antique “Goldtop” finish, antique binding all around (top, neck & headstock,) antique trapezoid inlays, single-piece mahogany back & neck, and a bookmatched maple top.

Other features will include a ’60s slim-taper neck profile, rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, dual mini-humbucker pickups, dual volume & tone controls, 3-way pickup switching, gold speed knobs, vintage green key tuning machines, and the traditional stopbar tailpiece & tone-o-matic bridge.

The Les Paul Antique Deluxe Gold Top will  be available in a limited run of just 400 instruments, and will ship with a hardshell case with white plush interior… no word on pricing.
