You could always go with the non bigsby and put a b3 with a towner. No drilling or damage to the guitar and completely reversible. Looks great as well.

That looks like a good option, thanks! To be honest, I would be very happy to have the P90 version - I was mostly just curious to know if Gibson had ever made any factory Bigsby and humbucker ES LP Goldtops, or what other cool variations might be out there...

Google ‘Gibson Legacy’ and you should find the specs on there
Thanks for that, Hartlefool! I had actually found what archives remain on the site, but was a bit disappointed that there no longer appears to be any information there on the Premiere versions, some of the limited runs, or the original 2014 specs before the later changes to the range...

Goldtop finish really suits the ES-Les Paul design. I reckon an All Gold version like some early 50s Les Pauls or an ES-295 would have made a stunning variation on the same theme...

Some red ES-Les Paul models were made in 2014 - not sure if the colour is cherry or wine red from these photos.
