Gibson LP-295 Goldtop Florentine Cutaway Guitar of the Month 2008 Limited to 1000


Here is an excellent condition LP295 from a limited run from the year 2008, only 1000 made. Gibson USA's LP-295 Goldtop is Gibson's Guitar of the Month for April 2008 and sets the classic appointments of Gibson's renowned ES-295 onto the body and neck of the celebrated Les Paul. The standard Les Paul cutaway gives way to the wider Florentine cutaway normally found on such legendary Gibson models as the Byrdland, the ES-175, and the ES-295. The LP-295′s hand-pointed, cream-colored pickguard with gold flowers is also styled after the ES-295, as are the split parallelogram inlays, and the chrome Bigsby tailpiece. Graphite nut and bridge saddles offer better string control when using the Bigsby. The guitar's body is solid mahogany with a maple top and single-ply cream binding, smoothed with Gibson's classic Goldtop finish. The headstock is also bound in single-ply cream binding and sports Gibson's traditional holly symbol. The neck is the standard Les Paul Mahogany neck with a '50s rounded profile and rosewood fingerboard. In the neck position, Gibson's '57 Classic pickup delivers warm, full tone with a balanced response, packing that classic Gibson PAF humbucker crunch. The '57 Classic Plus is the perfect bridge-position companion to the '57 Classic, inspired by the design of the original PAFs of the late 1950s and the early 1950s. The Gibson LP-295 is versatile enough for all styles of music and playing, and an admirable addition to Gibson's current lineup of special edition guitars. Like all of Gibson USA's Guitars of the Month, production is limited to just 1,000 guitars. Comes in a custom Guitar of the Month case.
