Description:
The 1950's were the years when the things that we now call "Americana" were created. In 1956, my Father was 19 years old, drag racing my Grandaddy's car with his brothers. I'm sure they all walked around with their jeans cuffed and a pack of cigarettes rolled into the sleeves of their T-shirts. That's just how it was during that period and man oh man, don't I wish I had been there.

Also in 1956, the fine craftsmen at Gibson completed this Les Paul and GA-20 amp. Both pieces come as a matched set and from first sight, you can tell that they both are beautiful examples of 61-year-old, handmade American quality. These instruments come from a local collector who, shall I say can actually play a guitar and do it quite well. Lee and I kid around and say that he could replace the dude in Kansas if he'd just go buy himself an eyepatch. He's definitely not what we call a "wall hanger"- nope, he'll jump on a 'Burst just as soon as he will a toothpaste-logo Charvel Surfcaster. And, tear the frets outta both of 'em. He's a true aficionado when it comes to tone and I once saw him bumrush and tackle a Marshall full-stack because it wasn't breaking up enough. We call him "K.C." around the 'Elkcave and I sure ain't talkin' about no Sunshine Band either...

Both this Les Paul and GA-20 are in excellent condition. One of the chickenhead knobs on the amp has been replaced (original is included) and the ABR-1 on the Goldtop has been replaced (original also included.) Rarely do we get to offer a vintage set like this one and if for nothing but the sheer joy of playing them together do you owe it to yourselves to see what that experience is like. We are prepared to receive any questions or requests, so please, any interested parties contact us for additional information and we'll promptly get you what you need. After all, that's what we do professionally around here...
