Gibson Les Paul 1960 Reissue Goldtop

Electric 6-String Guitar

Made by Gibson

Description I have owned this guitar for 1 1/2 years and it plays excellently. The neck is a little rounder than some of the older gibsons, but still great to play. This guitar makes a buitiful sound from blues, to rock, to heavy metal and jazz styles.
