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.

Nobody would believe you anyway when you show up to a jam night with that.

:rofl:I think you're right! I'd have to act like it's a reissue and hope that one of them there has a keen eye. That would be fun. I can imagine the comments now. Something like "Wow Gibson's QC has gotten a lot better."
