Around 1957, Gibson launched the now legendary PAF pickup with the 1957 Les Paul Goldtop being one of the first models to bear the new technology. Now recreated in many forms by nearly every manufacturer, this pickup is considered by many to be the holy grail of electric guitar tone. The Gibson 50th Anniversary of Marshall Les Paul Goldtop features two extremely close replications of the original PAF pickups in the form of two Burstbucker humbuckers.
Tom Murphy is the authority on aging of guitars, using extremely precise and secretive techniques to age a guitar just as it would be through years of gentle playing. While this will give a guitar a great look, it can also open up the sound through gentle wear of the nitrocellulose gloss finish. This is what makes the legendary sound of vintage guitars and is a big factor in why they are so desirable.
Based on one an early design of Marshall that was made to be easily transported with minimum effort, this amp is hand-wired and can guarantee exceptional tone. Essentially a combo version of the revered JTM45 head, the first amplifier made by Marshall, this amp includes a tremolo circuit easily turned on and off with he supplied footswitch. Four EL83 valves give you the genuine old-school tone that many guitar players crave which is further embellished when played through the two 12" Alnico T.652 speakers.
Marshall and Gibson have teamed up to offer this amazing piece of rock music history. Extremely collectable and undeniably playable, the Gibson 50th Anniversary of Marshall Les Paul Goldtop will go down in history and is available in extremely limited quantities, with only 50 being made worldwide.
