Gibson Les Paul 295 Goldtop - Guitar of the Month April 2008





Here's what Gibson said back in 2008...

Les Paul LP-295 Goldtop

Gibson USA’s new LP-295 Goldtop combines the Les Paul’s legendary characteristics with avant-garde features that keep it one step ahead of everything else. This new Guitar of the Month for April 2008 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, of course, the ES-295. The cream-colored pickguard with screened gold flowers is also styled after the ES-295s, as are the split parallelogram inlays, and the chrome Bigsby tailpiece. Graphite bridge saddles offer better string control when using the Bigsby. The mahogany body is chambered with a maple top and single-ply antique 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 1960s. The new LP-295, housed in a custom Guitar of the Month case from Gibson USA, 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.
