Les Paul 1956 Goldtop
Les Paul 1956 Goldtop
The Epiphone Les Paul ’56 Goldtop is an incredible reincarnation of the guitar heard ‘round the world. When it was released in 1952, original advertisements for the Goldtop Les Paul read "designed by Les Paul and enthusiastically approved by top guitarists everywhere." Time has proven that to be an understatement! The Les Paul Goldtop was a radical design for its time. Even Gibson was so unsure of the model that at first, they hesitated putting the company name on the headstock.

Whenever Les visited Epiphone, he always got a kick out of telling us that story, especially since the hard work and sweat that went into his design was originally done under the roof of Epiphone in New York City.

Many musicians choose Epiphone for all their acoustic and electric needs thanks to our pioneering Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 customer service. Make history today with the Les Paul ’56 Goldtop.
