This Pickguard is 100% Original. I got it from the original owner... Customer Ordered with Tuneomatic Bridge Pickguard
Sale is for Creme Patina Pickguard only..
Yes all you Gibson freaks, this is a Rare one. But All True!
From Gibson your seeing maybe the last 50's Les Paul to leave Gibson with Tune O Matic Bridge and P-90 Pickups. ( Most people think every Les Paul had PAF humbucker after 1957.. but not true)1st off the Gold Top was 100% when it was sold (to another Eddie) in 2001. The owner was the 2nd owner. (I don't count guitar dealers as owners). He played over the years the P 90, then found real 1958 PAF and real Pickguard and had Gibson put them in this. I would at least cut this pick guard down, as same exact thing, just cut for P-90
Black lights out and Glows Only As Gibson 58+ years old Les Parts Do.. Folks..:)
If you think about it. This is a close a Year to a 1959 Burst Pickguard as You will Ever Get.. The Orig owner made it into a Humbucker Les Paul Gold Top... Rare.. City***
It has Patina to a Nice Old Yellow Creme in color..
The price is Firm.. These are not a everyday find and Only getting harder to find... They only made so many Les Paul in the 1950's.. With the internet now. Stuff will be one day.. gone......
Mid-1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar specs:
Model name changed from "Les Paul Model" to "Les Paul Standard". Sunburst finish replaces Goldtop finish in the fall of 1958, around serial numbers in the "8 5300" range (though the first known Sunburst Les Paul has serial number "8 3322"). The maple top on a 1958 to 1960 Sunburst Les Paul is always two pieces and "center seamed" (there is NO exception to this rule, except for one of the first 1958 sunburst Les Pauls with serial number "8 3322"; if a Sunburst Les Paul does not have a two piece center seamed maple top, it is a refinished Goldtop!)
